Call for Demos
Manchester, 18-22 August, 2008The 22nd International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Tutorials: 16-17 August
Call for Proposals
Proposals for tutorials on all topics of computational linguistics and its applications are sought. Especially encouraged are cross-disciplinary tutorials that educate the community about recent technical advancements in semantic processing, machine learning, statistics, or data mining technology that are of interest to computational linguistics, or introduce relevant algorithms and theory that may be "old hat" to specialists in these areas but are still unfamiliar to part of the natural language processing community.
Proposals for tutorials should contain:
Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text no later than 19 March, 2008 to Philipp Koehn (pkoehn at inf.ed.ac.uk).
- A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to the Coling community (not more than 2 pages).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g. Internet access).
The subject line should be: "COLING'08 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".
Please note: Proposals by regular mail or fax will NOT be accepted.
