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

  and motivation.


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

  these costs.


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

   and fax) of the main contact person.


Please submit workshop proposals by electronic mail on or before 3rd

February 2008 to: Mark Stevenson (m.stevenson-AT-dcs.shef.ac.uk)
