P R O P O R 2014
October 6-8, 2014
Sao Carlos - SP, Brazil

The PROPOR 2014 organizing committee invites proposals for the Workshops
to be held in conjunction with the main conference in S‹o Carlos.

The PROPOR-2014 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with the conference. The overall purpose of a
workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and
discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of
computational processing of Portuguese.

Workshops can take on a number of forms including (but not limited to)
being organized around emerging research areas, challenge problems and
industrial applications. The organizers of approved workshops are
required to announce the workshop and call for papers, gather
submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final
workshop program. They must also prepare a set of workshop proceedings
to be distributed with the registration materials at the conference or
in an electronic version. They may choose to form organizing or program
committees for assistance in these tasks.

* Designation of a contact person

The workshop organizers are responsible for:
* Creating and distributing a call-for-papers, call-for-participation
  and any other relevant advertising. The calls should make it clear
  that at least one author of any accepted paper must attend the event
  and that papers will be withdrawn if no such participation is secured
  with the payment of the workshop dues. The call should clearly
  describe the review and selection process. Finally, the calls must be
  framed to encourage as broad a participation as possible.
* Creating and publishing (in a timely manner) a web site with all the
  relevant information pertaining to the workshop.
* Provide an extended abstract for the conference program
* Review and select papers submitted
* Schedule the presentations within the workshop
* It should be noted that the conference organization does not budget
  for free registration, accommodation or travel expenses for the
  workshop organizers or their invited speakers. The workshop organizers
  should therefore secure any source of funding / sponsorship deemed
  necessary for their invited speakers.
* Prepare electronic proceedings volumes by mid-September 2014.
