Call for Workshop Proposals
EACL 2012 / NAACL-HLT 2012 / ACL 2012
(http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/~kjokinen/WorkshopCFP/)

The European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
(EACL), The North American Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (NAACL), and The Association for
Computational Linguistics (ACL) invite proposals for workshops to be
held in conjunction with the EACL, NAACL, or ACL conferences in the
spring and summer of 2012. We solicit proposals on any topic of
interest to the ACL communities.

Workshops will be held at one of the following conference venues:

EACL 2012 is the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held in Avignon,
April 23 - 27, 2012. The dates for the EACL workshops will be April 23-
24. The webpage for EACL 2012 is: http://eacl2012.org/.

NAACL-HLT 2012 is the 13th Annual Meeting of the North American
Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held
Montreal, Canada, June 3 - 8, 2012. The dates for the NAACL-HLT
workshops will be June 7 - 8. The webpage for NAACL-HLT 2012 is:
http://www.naaclhlt2012.org/.

ACL 2012 is the 50th Annual Meeting of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (ACL). It will be held in Jeju, Republic of
Korea, July 8 - 14, 2012. The ACL workshops will be held July 12-13.
The webpage for ACL 2012 is: http://www.acl2012.org/.

Proposals will be jointly reviewed by the workshop organizers for all
three conferences.

Submission Information

Similarly to previous conferences, the submission and reviewing of
workshop proposals for EACL, NAACL-HLT, and ACL will be
coordinated.

Proposals for workshops should contain:

1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and
content.

2. The desired workshop length (one or two days), and an estimate of
the number of attendees.

3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses
of the organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research
interests and areas of expertise.

4. A list of potential members of the program committee, with an
indication of which members have already agreed.

5. A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.

6. A description of special requirements for technical needs.

7. A note specifying which venue(s) (EACL versus NAACL-HLT versus
ACL) would be acceptable to you; if all are acceptable, you may
express preference for one or the other.

There will be a single workshop committee, coordinated by the three
sets of workshop chairs. This single committee will review the quality of
the workshop proposals. Once the reviews are complete, the workshop
chairs will work together to assign workshops to each of the three
conferences, taking into account the location preferences given by the
proposers.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find the ACL's
general policies on workshops at
http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/Workshops/workshop-support-
general-policy.html, the financial policy for workshops at
http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/Workshops/workshop-conf-
financial-policy.html, and the financial policy for SIG workshops at
http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/Workshops/workshops-Sig-
financial-policy.html.

Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the
workshop organizers:
eacl.naacl.acl.workshops.2012_AT_helsinki_DOT_fi no later than
October 28, 2011, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT (which is 18:59:59 EST,
15:59:59 PST, and 08:59:59 JST on Oct 29).

Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later
than November 11, 2011.

Since the three conferences will occur at different times, the timescales
for the submission and reviewing of workshop papers, and the
preparation of camera-ready copies, will be different for each
conference. Suggested timescales for each of the conferences are
given below. Workshop organizers should not deviate from this
schedule unless absolutely necessary.

Workshop organisers are also requested to pay attention to the fact
that there will be only a week between the notification of the workshop
acceptance and sending out the first CFPs for the workshop (in case of
EACL and ACL). Thus it is important that the workshop proposals are
already well structured and organised at the time of the submission, to
allow quick launch of the first CFP.
