Call for Workshop Proposals
(submission closed - calls for workshop papers have been sent around)
The EACL-03 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held at EACL-03. EACL-03 will take place in Budapest, Hungary, April 12-17, 2003 with workshops being held on Sunday and Monday, April 13 and 14, 2003.
EACL-03 workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic within computational linguistics. Often, workshops concentrate on specific topics of technical interest (e.g., parsing technologies), particular areas of application for language processing technologies (e.g., NLP applied to IR), or community-wide issues that deserve attention (e.g., standardization of resources and tools).
We welcome proposals on any topic that is of interest to the EACL community, but we particularly encourage proposals that broaden the scope of our community through the consideration of new or interdisciplinary techniques or applications.
We also encourage topics that are specific to the EACL community such as resources and tools for European or Mediterranean languages.
Traditionally, workshops are shaped as mini-conferences, but we encourage proposers to consider other formats that exploit the fact that smaller settings allow for more interaction between participants (discussions, panels, working sessions). The default duration of a workshop is one day, but longer or shorter durations can be proposed (but should be justified).
Please note that capacity limitations may cause us to request the organizers to shorten a workshop or to merge it with another workshop in a related area.
The workshop organisers will benefit from the standard logistic facilities provided for the conference e.g., room, equipment, coffee, proceedings. Any additional cost should be covered by the organisers (especially invited speakers, PC meetings etc.).
Participants pay a registration fee which is dependent on the duration of the workshop. Participants not registered for the main conference, pay a higher fee.
