[eu_members at aclweb dot org] Greece: EACL 2009 -- FINAL Call for Tutorial Proposals



EACL 2009 FINAL CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

-- apologies for multiple postings --

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 12th Conference  of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational  Linguistics (EACL 2009), to be held in Athens, Greece, from March 30  to April 3, 2009. The selected tutorials will be given on the Monday  and Tuesday preceeding the main conference (March 30 and 31).

Proposals for tutorials on all topics of natural language processing, speech processing and information retrieval are sought. We particularly welcome (1) tutorials which cover advances in newly emerging areas not previously covered in an (E)ACL related tutorial,  or (2) tutorials which provide introductions into related fields which  are potentially relevant for the CL community (e.g. bioinformatics,  human language processing, emerging machine learning techniques).

The remuneration for tutorials will be computed as follows:
• €484 for up to 20 people
• plus €23 per person for registrants 21 to 50
• plus €16 per person for registrants greater than 50

The minimum remuneration will be €484 or the cost of one economy airline ticket to the conference, whichever is higher. As has been ACL policy, the remuneration is per tutorial, not per presenter; multiple presenters will split the proceeds, the default assumption being an even split.

These figures are euro conversions to the nearest euro of dollar amounts quoted in

3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the tutorial instructors, including a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise.

4. A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if the same or a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere; otherwise an estimate of the audience size.

5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g. internet access).
