ACL 2011: Call for Tutorial Proposals

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 49th Annual
Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language
Technologies (ACL HLT 2011). The conference is to be held in Portland,
Oregon, USA, June 19-24, 2011. The tutorials will be held on Sunday,
June 19, 2011.

ACL HLT 2011 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.

Information on the tutorial instructor payment policy can be found at

Note: Remuneration for Tutorial presenters is fixed according to the
above policy and does not cover registration fees for the main conference.


Proposals for tutorials should contain:

   1. A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its
relevance to the ACL community (not more than 2 pages).
   2. A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the
tutorial's core content can be covered in a three-hour slot (including a
coffee break). In exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots are
available as well.
   3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
the tutorial instructors, including a one-paragraph statement of their
research interests and areas of expertise.
   4. A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if the
same or a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere; otherwise an
estimate of the audience size.
   5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment
(e.g., internet access).

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text no
later than December 17, 2010 to acl2011.tutorial at gmail.com.

The subject line should be: "ACL 2011: Tutorial Proposal".


   1. Proposals will not be accepted by regular mail or fax.

has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation 24 hours
