[eu_members at aclweb dot org] China: COLING 2010 -- Call for Tutorial Proposals



 Coling 2010 Call For Tutorial Proposals


Tutorial proposals are invited for the Tutorial Programme of Coling
2010, to be held in Beijing, China on August 23-27th, 2010 (see
http://www.coling-2010.org/).  Coling 2010 is the 23rd International
Conference on Computational Linguistics.  The tutorials will be held on
the weekend preceding the conference, August 21-22, 2010.

Proposals for tutorials on all topics of computational linguistics and
its applications are sought.  Especially encouraged are
cross-disciplinary tutorials that educate the community about recent
technical advancements in semantic processing, machine learning,
statistics, or data mining technology that are of interest to
computational linguistics, or introduce relevant algorithms and theory
that may be "old hat" to specialists in these areas but are still
unfamiliar to part of the natural language processing community.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Proposals for tutorials should contain:

* A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its
  relevance to the Coling community (not more than 2 pages).

* A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the
  tutorial's core content can be covered in a three-hour slot
  (including a coffee break). In exceptional cases six-hour tutorial
  slots are available as well.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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 7 Feb, 2010, to coling-2010-tut at cs dot rochester dot edu

The subject line should be: "COLING 2010 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".

PLEASE NOTE: PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BY REGULAR MAIL OR FAX.


TUTORIAL SPEAKER RESPONSIBILITIES

Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by 22 Feb, 2010, and must
