Subject: [ E-CFP ] EACL 2014: Call for tutorial proposals
From: <peter.ljunglof_(on)_heatherleaf.se>
Date received: 11 Jun 2013
Deadline: 01 Nov 2013
Start date: 26 Apr 2014


Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 14th
Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (EACL 2014), to be held in Gothenburg,
Sweden, from 26 to 30 April 2014. The selected tutorials will be
given on the Saturday and Sunday preceding the main conference
(26 and 27 April).

EACL 2014 seeks proposals for tutorials in all areas of
computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include
disciplines such as Linguistics, Speech, Information Retrieval,
Psycholinguistics, and Multimodal Processing. We particularly
welcome (1) tutorials which cover advances in newly emerging
areas not previously covered in an *ACL related tutorial, and (2)
tutorials which provide introductions into related fields which
are potentially relevant for the CL community (e.g.
bioinformatics, neuroscience, human language processing, video
and image analysis, machine learning techniques). In order to
gather a widespread audience, the experience and qualifications
of the instructors will also be taken into account.


Remuneration for tutorials is regulated by ACL policies:
Please note that enumeration for tutorial presenters is fixed
according to the above policy and does not cover registration
fees for the main conference.


Proposals for tutorials should contain:
1. A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its
   relevance to the ACL community (not more than 2 pages).
2. A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the
   tutorial's core content can be covered in a three-hour slot
   (excluding a coffee break). In exceptional cases six-hour
   tutorial slots are available as well.
3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email
   addresses of the tutorial instructors, including a
   one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas
   of expertise.
4. A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if
   the same or a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere;
   otherwise an estimate of the audience size.
5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment
   (e.g. internet access).

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII
text, to "tutorials at eacl2014 dot org", no later than 1
November 2013. The subject line should be: "EACL 2014 Tutorial
Proposal". Please note that only proposals submitted by e-mail
will be taken into account.


Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by 15 November 2013,
and must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion
in the conference registration material by 15 December 2013. The
description should be in two formats: an ASCII version that can
be included in email announcements and published on the
conference web site, and a PDF version for inclusion in the
electronic proceedings (detailed instructions to follow).

Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials, at least
containing copies of the course slides as well as a bibliography
for the material covered in the tutorial, by 1 February 2014.


Submission deadline for tutorial proposals: 1 November 2013
Notification of acceptance: 15 November 2013 Tutorial
descriptions due: 15 December 2013 Tutorial course material due:
1 February 2014 Tutorial dates: 26-27 April 2014
