2003 EUROLAN Summer School on The Semantic Web and Language Technology

Location: Bucharest, Romania
Date: 28-Jul-2003 - 08-Aug-2003
Web Site: http://www.infoiasi.ro/~eurolan/eurolan2003/
Contact Person: Dan Cristea
Meeting Email: dcristea at infoiasi.ro
Linguistic Subfield(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The EUROLAN-2003 Program Committee invites proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with EUROLAN-2003 summer school on The Semantic
Web and Language Technology: Its Potential and Practicalities. One or
two workshops will be held, each during three consecutive evenings,
during the two weeks interval of the summer school. Areas of Interest
We welcome proposals on any topic of interest within the school's main
theme (for details, please consult the EUROLAN-2003 pages at
http://www.infoiasi.ro/~eurolan/eurolan2003/).

Submission
Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, as plain text, rtf,
pdf or ps files, no later than 24 February 2003. The subject line
should be: EUROLAN WORKSHOP PROPOSAL. Please submit your proposals and
any inquiries by e-mail to Dan Cristea at dcristea at infoiasi.ro.

Reviewing
Proposals will be reviewed by the EUROLAN-2003 Program Committee:
Dan Cristea - ''Alexandru Ioan Cuza'' University, Iasi
Jerry Hobbs - ISI, University of Southern California
Nancy Ide - Vassar College, Poughkeepsie
Dan Tufis - Romanian Academy, Bucharest
Hans Uszkoreit - DFKI and University of Saarbruecken

Proposals
A workshop proposal should contain:
Scientific part:
- a title and a brief (about 500 word) content description of the workshop topic.
Organizational part:
- any special requirements for technical needs (computer infrastructure, etc.);
- the program committee.

Organization details
EUROLAN-2003 will support the workshops with the necessary equipment
and rooms.  The workshops are expected to be organizationally and
financially self-supported, including reviewing of received
contributions, selection of papers, printing of the workshop
proceedings.  The workshop participants are supposed to be registered
as regular EUROLAN students. The fee policy for the workshop
participants is unspecified and left at the judge of the workshop
organizers.  It is recommended that the program committees of the
workshops include some of the invited lecturers of EUROLAN-2003, so
that the workshops could be better interconnected with the school's
activities.

Important Dates

Submission Deadline for Workshop Proposal: February 24, 2003.
Notification of acceptance of Workshop Proposal:  March 3, 2003.
Workshop date: during the interval July 28 - August 8, 2003.
