ACL 2010: Call for Tutorial Proposals

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 48th Annual
Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2010).
The conference is to be held in Uppsala, Sweden, July 11-16, 2010.
The tutorials will be held on Sunday, July 11.

ACL 2010 seeks proposals for tutorials on all topics of computational
linguistics, broadly conceived to include areas such as psycholinguistics,
speech, information retrieval, multimodal language processing, and
language issues in emerging domains such as bioinformatics. Especially
encouraged are tutorials that educate the community about advancements in
cross-disciplinary areas such as machine learning and cognitive approaches
as they relate to computational linguistics, as well as tutorials that
span multiple areas of human language processing.
