	     COLING 2008 Second Call for Workshop Proposals


       22nd International Conference on Computational Linguistics

			18th-22nd August 2008
			    Manchester, UK

		    http://www.coling2008.org.uk/



	    *** 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.


SUBMISSION DETAILS

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
