COLING 2008 Call for Workshop Proposals
22nd International Conference on Computational Linguistics
16th-24nd August 2008
*** Submission deadline: 3rd February 2008 ***
The Programme Committee for the 22nd International Conference on
Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to be held
in conjunction with COLING 2008 in Manchester, United Kingdom.
Workshops provide the opportunity for in-depth discussion on a focused
area of research. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the
COLING community, including those which explore emerging research
and/or inter-disciplinary issues.
Workshops will be held close to the location of the main conference
during the weekends preceding and following the main conference
(16-17th and 23-24 August).
The START system will be available to assist workshop organisers with
the reviewing process.
Proposals for workshops should contain:
1 Title and short description (up to 500 words) of the workshop topic
2 A description of target audience and expected number of
participants. (If the workshop is part of a series, also provide
details of number of submissions, acceptances and registered
participants for previous events.)
3 The intended length and format of the workshop. (It is expected that
the majority of workshops will last for one day although half-day
and two-day workshops can also be accommodated.)
4 Whether you have any preference for the workshop to be held before
or after the main conference. (Pre-conference workshops will be held
on the 16th and 17th of August, post-conference workshops on the
23rd and 24th.)
5 Proposed timetable for workshop submissions and reviewing process,
including dates for submission deadline, notification of acceptance
and submission of camera-ready versions. (Please ensure these are
consistent with the important dates listed below.)
6 Budget proposal. COLING will provide the workshop with a meeting
room (including projection facilities), electronic proceedings and
coffee break refreshments. Please indicate whether you have any
requirements for exceptional items and how you would expect to meet
7 Special requirements (e.g. computer infrastructure or shared task).
8 List of workshop organisers and, for each organiser, a brief
paragraph describing their relevant experience.
9 List of individuals who have agreed to be part of the workshop
programme committee if the proposal is accepted.
10 Full contact details (postal address, phone number, e-mail address
