======================================================================== Final Call for Workshop Proposal for COLING 2002 [2002/01/09] ======================================================================== * Important Reminder: Workshop Proposals Due: 2002/01/15 ======================================================================== COLING 2002 Final Call for Workshop Proposals August 31 -- September 1, 2002 ======================================================================== The COLING Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held at COLING2002. COLING2002 will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, August 24th - September 1st, 2002 with workshops being held August 31st and September 1st, 2002. COLING 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., shallow parsing), particular areas of application for language processing technologies (e.g., NLP applied to multilingual cross-language retrieval), 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 Computational Linguistics community, but we particularly encourage proposals that broaden the scope of our community through the consideration of new techniques or applications, in particular with respect to multimodal communication, the semantic web, speech technology, information retrieval, text and data mining, biological information extraction, computational psycholinguistics, etc. Proposals Submission Details Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, and the size of the interested community. Proposals should be 2-4 pages and contain the following information: - a title and brief description of the workshop topic; - a budget proposal; - the target audience and projected number of participants along with support for the projected count. Supporting evidence could include a list of potential submitters, a list of conferences that contained papers on the proposed topic, the number of new companies focused on this topic, or recent funding initiatives that address this topic; - the intended length (at least half a day, up to two days); - resource needs such as room size and number of days. Include any special requirements for technical support (computer infrastructure, etc.); - the name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and webpage of each chair. In addition, indicate the chairs' background in the workshop area. Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text, as soon as possible but no later than JANUARY 15th , 2002. The subject line should be: "COLING2002 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL". Please send the workshop proposals to Prof. Antonio Zampolli: pisa_(on)_ilc.pi.cnr.it Prof. Antonio Zampolli Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche Area della Ricerca di Pisa - Localita San Cataldo Via Moruzzi, 1 - 56124 Pisa ITALY ======================================================================== IMPORTANT DATES Workshop Proposals due: January 15th, 2002 Notification of acceptance of Proposals: February 15th, 2002 Workshops Date: August 31st -September 1st, 2002 ======================================================================== General Guidelines for Workshop Organiztion - prepared by the COLING-2002 Organizing Committee The COLING-2002 general guidelines on publication, financing, and sponsorship for workshops are listed as follows. 0. Please first submit a proposal to Prof. Antonio Zampolli (pisa_(on)_ilc.pi.cnr.it), the Coling-2002 Workshop Chair. The deadline for Workshop Proposals is 15 January, 2002. The information on the expected number of participants is required in your proposal. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will need such information to estimate the number of copies of the workshop proceedings as well as various other estimates. (For general COLING-2002 information, please visit the URL at: http://www.coling2002.sinica. edu.tw). 1. The registration fee will be the same for all the individual workshops. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee are responsible for collecting and managing the registration fee. 2. The on-line registration (and pre-registration) of the workshops will be integrated into the registration process of Coling-2002. 3. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will provide the on-site registration service, and maintain the information desk (including responsible personnel) during the workshop. The information desk will be a centralized one, which is shared by all the workshops. 4. The workshop organizer is responsible for compiling and typesetting the proceedings content (including preface, table of content, papers, numbering, index, etc.) and then converting it into a format conforming to the pre-specified standard (e.g., PDF, Postscript, etc.) set forth by the printing group of the Oraganizing Committee. The paper style and format should be the same as the main conference. 5. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee are responsible for printing the workshop proceedings and producing the conference CD-ROM; all the proceedings of the main conference, tutorials and workshops will be put into the same CD-ROM. 6. The files for the workshop proceedings, prepared by the workshop organizer, must be sent to the printing group of the local organizing committee before the pre-specified date. This is necessary to ensure that the workshop proceedings be included in the CD-ROM and be distributed on-site. The content will not be included in the CD-ROM and the Oraganizing Committee are not responsible for the later mail delivery cost, if the workshop organizer fails to deliver the files in time. 7. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will decide the number of copies of the proceedings to be printed, and are fully in charge of those extra copies. However, the workshop organizer will own the copyright and the right to re-print the proceedings. 8. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will provide the conference room and general equipments (like LCD projectors, overhead projectors, and microphones, etc.) without extra charge. Special requirements, however, should be specified in the workshop proposal in advance, if any. 9. Two refreshment services will be provided freely per day (one in the morning break, and the other in the afternoon break). Since the refreshment services might be shared by several concurrent workshops, each workshop organizer will be requested to synchronize with the pre-specified break schedule, if it is the case. 10. Self-paid lunch boxes and/or cafeteria tickets will be avaible during the workshops. The expense is separated from the registration fee. Workshop organizers must make other meal arrangments (if any). 11. Any extra expense not mentioned above (e.g., reimbursement for invited speakers, banquet for the steering committee members, etc.) will be the workshop organizer's responsibility. 12. If you have any question about the logistic support, please contact Dr. Keh-Yih Su (Email: "kysu_(on)_bdc.com.tw"). Revenue-Sharing Incentive for COLING-2002 Workshops To encourage workshops with high academic standard and research innovation as well as to help workshop organizers defray some of the costs for organizing such a workshop, the COLING-2002 organizing committee proposes the following revenue-sharing incentive. For any workshop with a paid-registration of over 60 participants, part of the registration fee will be re-imbursed to the organizer. The formula for calculating the reimbursement amount follows: $10 x (N-60), where N is the number of paid registrants (regardless of the category of the registration fees). The reimbursement is executed in one of the following ways: 1. As reimbursement to the direct expenses of the workshop (original copies of receipts of the expenses will be required): fully reimbursable up to the amount determined by the above formula. 2. Exchange for free registration (as student fellowship, speaker privilege, or subsidy to scholars from countries with financial difficulties): fully exchangeable up to the amount determined by the above formula. 3. As direct payment to the individual or SIG organizer (in exchange for the service of organizing the workshop): fully payable, but subject to a 20 0.000000lat tax rate for income payment to foreigners in Taiwan. ======================================================================== Additional Conference Information Please e-mail any inquiries on COLING2002 Conference to: COLING02_(on)_sinica.edu.tw.
