Joint Call for Tutorial Proposals: NAACL 2015 & ACL 2015 & EMNLP 2015

The North American Chapter of the Association for Computational
Linguistics (NAACL), the Association for Computational Linguistics
(ACL), and the Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language
Processing (EMNLP) invite proposals for tutorials to be held in
conjunction with NAACL 2015, ACL 2015, or EMNLP 2015. We seek proposals
for tutorials in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly
conceived to include disciplines such as linguistics, speech,
information retrieval and multimodal processing. We particularly welcome
(1) tutorials that cover advances in newly emerging areas not previously
covered in any NAACL/ACL/EMNLP related tutorial, or (2) tutorials that
provide introductions into related fields that are potentially relevant
for the CL community (e.g. bioinformatics, social media, human language
processing, machine learning techniques).

Tutorials will be held at one of the following conference venues:

NAACL 2015 is the Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL). It will be held in
Denver, Colorado May 31 - June 5, 2015. The NAACL tutorials will be held
on May 31. The webpage for NAACL 2015 is: http://naacl.org/naacl-hlt-2015/.

ACL 2015 is the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational
Linguistics. It will be held in Beijing, China, July 26-31, 2015. The
ACL tutorials will be held on July 26. ACL webpage: http://acl2015.org/.

EMNLP 2015 is the SIGDAT conference on Empirical Methods for Natural
Language Processing (EMNLP). The main conference will be held in Lisbon,
Portugal, September 17-21, 2015. The EMNLP tutorials will be held on
September 17.


Information on the payment for tutorial instructors can be found in the
ACL Tutorial Teacher Payment Policy (visit this link to read the policy
). Please note: remuneration for Tutorial presenters is fixed according to
the above policy and does not cover registration fees for the main


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, affiliations, email addresses and websites 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).
6. A note specifying which venue(s) (NAACL/ACL/EMNLP) would be
acceptable and/or preferable.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted online by Jan 9th, 2015 through
the START system: https://www.softconf.com/acl2015/tutorial/
Proposals will be reviewed jointly by the Tutorial Co-Chairs of the
three conferences.


Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by Friday, February 6, 2015,
and must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the
conference registration material by the corresponding deadlines. The
description should be in two formats: an ASCII version that can be
included in email announcements and published on the conference website,
and a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed
instructions will be provided). 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 the deadlines
specified for the three conferences.
