Dublin, Ireland, 23-29 August, 2014

COLING 2014 (, the 25th International
Conference on Computational Linguistics, organised by CNGL (Centre for
Global Intelligent Content), will take place at the Helix Convention
Centre at Dublin City University (DCU) from 23-29 August 2014. The
COLING conference is organised under the auspices of the International
Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL).

The COLING conference has a history that dates back to the 1960s. The
conference is held every two years and regularly attracts more than 700
delegates. The first conference was held in New York, 1965. Since then,
the conference has developed into one of the premier Natural Language
Processing conferences world-wide. The last five conferences were held
in Geneva (COLING 2004), Sydney (COLING - ACL 2006), Manchester (COLING
2008), Beijing (COLING 2010) and Mumbai (COLING 2012).

COLING covers a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural
language and computation. The conference will include papers,
demonstrations, tutorials and workshops.

COLING 2014 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel and
emerging ideas in NLP/CL in a less formal and possibly more focused way
than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be
determined by the organisers, but it is expected that workshops will
contain ample time for general discussion and engagement by all
participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster
collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community-building
initiatives are particularly encouraged. Researchers and practitioners
from all areas of the NLP/CL community are invited to submit proposals
for review.



Proposals for workshops should contain:

1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and

2. The desired workshop length (one day, two days or a half day) and an
   estimate of the number of attendees.

3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
   the organisers, with one-paragraph statements of their research
   interests and areas of expertise.

4. A list of potential members of the program committee, with an
   indication of which members have already signed up.

5. A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.

6. A description of special requirements for technical needs.

7. An indication of whether posters are likely to be included in the
   workshop program.

Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the
workshop organisers (workshops at no later than January
19, 2014, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT.

Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later
than January 26, 2014.

Organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for publicising and
running the workshop, including reviewing submissions and producing the
camera-ready workshop proceedings.  It is crucial that organisers commit
to all deadlines. In particular, failure to produce the camera-ready
proceedings on time will lead to the exclusion of the workshop from the
CD-ROM/USB & unified author indexes. Workshop organisers cannot accept
for publication papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere,
although they are free to set their own policies on simultaneous
submission and review. The COLING 2014 organisers will set the workshop
fees, provide rooms, equipment, technical support, coffee and lunch



* 19th January 2014: Workshop proposals due

* 26th January 2014: Notification of workshop acceptances

* 18th July 2014: Camera-ready deadline for workshop proceedings
