EACL 2014 THIRD AND FINAL CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

Submission deadline: 1 November 2013 


Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2014), to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 26 to 30 April 2014. The selected tutorials will be given on the Saturday and Sunday preceding the main conference (26 and 27 April).

EACL 2014 seeks proposals for tutorials in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include disciplines such as Linguistics, Speech, Information Retrieval, Psycholinguistics, and Multimodal Processing. We particularly welcome (1) tutorials which cover advances in newly emerging areas not previously covered in an *ACL related tutorial, and (2) tutorials which provide introductions into related fields which are  potentially relevant for the CL community (e.g. bioinformatics, neuroscience, human language processing, video and image analysis, machine learning techniques). In order to gather a widespread audience, the experience and qualifications of the instructors will also be taken into account.


REMUNERATION

Remuneration for tutorials is regulated by ACL policies: 

 http://aclweb.org/adminwiki/index.php?title=Policy_on_tutorial_teacher_payment

Please note that remuneration for tutorial presenters is fixed according to the above policy and does not cover registration fees for the main conference.


SUBMISSION DETAILS

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 (excluding 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, to "tutorials at eacl2014 dot org", no later than 1 November 2013. The subject line should be: "EACL 2014 Tutorial Proposal". Please note that only proposals submitted by e-mail will be taken into account.


TUTORIAL SPEAKER RESPONSIBILITIES

Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by 15 November 2013, and must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference registration material by 15 December 2013. The description should be in two formats: an ASCII version that can be included in email  announcements and published on the conference web site, and a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed instructions to follow).

Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials, at least containing copies of the course slides as well as a bibliography for the material covered in the tutorial, by 1 February 2014.
