Call for Bids to Host ACL 2011 in the Americas

The Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals to host the 49th Annual Meeting of the ACL, to be held in the Americas in June or July, 2011

At this time, we seek preliminary draft proposals from prospective bidders in America (North, Central, or South). Promising bidders will be asked to provide additional information for the final selection.

The ACL-2011 Coordinating Committee, made up of members of the Executive Committee of the ACL and members of the Chapter Board of its North American Chapter (NAACL), will select the General Chair and the Program Committee Co-Chairs for the conference.
