EACL 2009 CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 12th
Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (EACL 2009), to be held in Athens,
Greece, from March 30 to April 3, 2009. The selected tutorials
will be given on the Monday and Tuesday preceeding the main
conference (March 30 and 31).
Proposals for tutorials on all topics of natural language
processing, speech processing and information retrieval are
sought. We particularly welcome (1) tutorials which cover
advances in newly emerging areas not previously covered in an
(E)ACL related tutorial, or (2) tutorials which provide
introductions into related fields which are potentially relevant
for the CL community (e.g. bioinformatics, human language
processing, emerging machine learning techniques).
The remuneration for tutorials will be computed as follows:
?484 for up to 20 people plus ?23 per person for registrants 21
to 50 plus ?16 per person for registrants greater than 50
The minimum remuneration will be ?484 or the cost of one economy
airline ticket to the conference, whichever is higher. As has
been ACL policy, the remuneration is per tutorial, not per
presenter; multiple presenters will split the proceeds, the
default assumption being an even split.
These figures are euro conversions to the nearest euro of dollar
amounts quoted in
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
(including 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
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 no later than November 25th, 2008 to E.J.Krahmer "at" uvt.nl
The subject line should be: "EACL 2009 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".
Please note that only proposals submitted by e-mail will be taken
