EACL-03: LAST CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Proposal submission deadline: October 1, 2002
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.
* Workshop topics
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.
* Workshop format
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.
* Financial guidelines
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.).
* Registration fees
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.
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.
* 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
