EACL 2009 FINAL CALL FOR TUTORIAL
-- 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

numbers, and email addresses of the tutorial instructors, including a
one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of

elsewhere; otherwise an estimate of the audience size.
5. A description of special
requirements for technical equipment (e.g. internet access).
Proposals should be submitted by
electronic mail, in plain ASCII text no later than November 25th, 2008 to
E.J.Krahmer "at" uvt.nl
The subject line should be: "EACL
