CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
EACL 2012 & NAACL 2012 & ACL 2012
The European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL), The
North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL), and
The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) invite proposals for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the EACL, NAACL, or ACL conferences in the spring and summer of 2012.
We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL communities. Workshops will be
held at one of the following conference venues:
Proposals will be reviewed jointly by the workshop organizers
for all three conferences.
- EACL 2012 is the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held in Avignon, April 23 - 27, 2012.
The dates for the EACL workshops will be April 23-24. The webpage for EACL 2012 is:
- NAACL-HLT 2012 is the 13th Annual Meeting of the North American
Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held Montreal, Canada,
June 3 - 8, 2012. The dates for the NAACL-HLT workshops will be June 7 - 8. The webpage for
NAACL-HLT 2012 is: http://www.naaclhlt2012.org/.
- ACL 2012 is the 50th Annual Meeting of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (ACL). It will be held in Jeju, Republic of Korea, July 8 - 14, 2012.
The ACL workshops will be held July 12 - 13. The webpage for ACL 2012 is:
Similarly to previous conferences, the submission and reviewing of workshop proposals
for EACL, NAACL-HLT, and ACL will be coordinated.
Proposals for workshops should contain:
There will be a single workshop committee, coordinated by the three sets
of workshop chairs. This single committee will review the quality of
the workshop proposals. Once the reviews are complete, the workshop
chairs will work together to assign workshops to each of the three
conferences, taking into account the location preferences given by the
- A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and content.
- The desired workshop length (one or two days), and an estimate of the number of attendees.
- The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
the organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research
interests and areas of expertise.
- A list of potential members of the program committee, with an indication of which members have already agreed.
- A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.
- A description of special requirements for technical needs.
- A note specifying which venue(s) (EACL versus NAACL-HLT versus ACL) would
be acceptable to you; if all are acceptable, you may express preference
for one or the other.
The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find
the ACL's general policies on workshops at
the financial policy for workshops at
and the financial policy for SIG workshops at
Please submit proposals in plain text
in the body of an email to the workshop organizers
no later than October 28, 2011, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT
(which is 18:59:59 EST, 15:59:59 PST, and 08:59:59 JST on Oct 29).
Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no
later than November 11, 2011.
Since the three conferences will occur
at different times, the timescales for the submission and reviewing of
workshop papers, and the preparation of camera-ready copies, will be
different for each conference. Suggested timescales for each of the
conferences are given below. Workshop organizers should not deviate
from this schedule unless absolutely necessary.
Workshop organisers are also requested to pay attention to the fact that
there will be only a week between the notification of the workshop acceptance
and sending out the first CFPs for the workshop. Thus it is important that
the workshop proposals are already well structured and organised at the time of
the submission, to allow quick launch of the first CFP.
