Location: Singapore/Athens/Boulder, USA 
Contact Person: Miriam Butt

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 01-Sep-2008 

Meeting Description:

The Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with one of the three flagship conferences sponsored in
2009 by the Association for Computational Linguistics: ACL-IJCNLP 2009, EACL
2009, and NAACL HLT 2009.  We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the
ACL community. 

Second Call for Workshop Proposals EACL 2009, NAACL HLT 2009, and ACL-IJCNLP 2009

Workshops will be held at one of the following conference venues:

EACL 2009 is the annual meeting of the European chapter of the ACL. The
conference will be held in Athens, Greece, March 30-April 3 2009; workshops
March 30-31.

NAACL HLT 2009 is the annual meeting of the North American chapter of the ACL.
It continues the inclusive tradition of encompassing relevant work from the
natural language processing, speech and information retrieval communities. The
conference will be held in Boulder, Colorado, USA, from May 31-June 5 2009;
workshops will be held June 4-5.

ACL-IJCNLP 2009 combines the 47th Annual Meeting of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (ACL 2009) with the 4th International Joint Conference
on Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP). The conference will be held in
Singapore, August 2-7 2009; workshops will be held August 6-7.

Submission Information:
In a departure from previous years, ACL-IJCNLP, EACL and NAACL HLT will
coordinate the submission and reviewing of workshop proposals for all three ACL
2009 conferences.

Proposals for workshops should contain:

- A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and content.
- The desired workshop length (one or two days), and an estimate of the audience
- The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the
organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research interests and areas
of expertise.
- A budget.
- A list of potential members of the program committee, with an indication of
which members have already agreed.
- A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.
- A description of special requirements for technical needs.
- A venue preference specification.

The venue preference specification should list the venues at which the
organizers would be willing to present the workshop (EACL, NAACL HLT, or
ACL-IJCNLP). A proposal may specify one, two, or three acceptable workshop
venues; if more than one venue is acceptable, the venues should be
preference-ordered. There will be a single workshop committee, coordinated by
the three sets of workshop chairs. This single committee will review the quality
of the workshop proposals. Once the reviews are complete, the workshop chairs
will work together to assign workshops to each of the three conferences, taking
into account the location preferences given by the proposers.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find general information on
policies regarding attendance, publication, financing, and sponsorship, as well
as on financial support of SIG workshops, at the following URL:

Please submit proposals by electronic mail no later than September 1 2008, to

2009 Workshop Proposal.''

Practical Arrangements:
Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later than
September 23, 2008. Since the three ACL conferences will occur at different
times, the timescales for the submission and reviewing of workshop papers, and
the preparation of camera-ready copies, will be different for the three
conferences. Suggested timescales for each of the conferences are given below.
