           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.

*  Proposals

 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
 following information:
   * 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
     infrastructure, etc.).
   * The name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and
     webpage of each chair. In addition, indicate the chairs'
     background in the workshop area.
   * A preliminary programme committee

 Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text,
 as soon as possible but no later than OCTOBER 1, 2002.

 The subject line should be: "EACL-03 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL".
 Please e-mail proposals and any inquiries to the Workshop Chair,
