Call for Workshop Proposals
ACL'01/EACL'01 Joint Conference
The ACL/EACL'01 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops
to be held at ACL/EACL'01. ACL/EACL'01 will be held in Toulouse,
France, July 6-11, 2001 with workshops being held July 6-7, 2001.
ACL/EACL'01 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 ACL community, but we particularly
encourage proposals that broaden the scope of our community through
the consideration of new techniques or applications.
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
- 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.
- Resource needs such as room size and number of days. Include any
special requirements for technical support (computer
- The name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and
webpage of each chair. In addition, indicate the chairs'
