CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
EACL 2012 / NAACL-HLT 2012 / ACL 2012
The European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
(EACL), The North American Chapter of the Association for Computational
Linguistics (NAACL), and The Association for Computational Linguistics
(ACL) invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the
EACL, NAACL, or ACL conferences in the spring and summer of 2012. We
solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL communities.
Workshops will be held at one of the following conference venues:
* EACL 2012 is the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held in
Avignon, April 23 – 27, 2012. The dates for the EACL workshops
will be April 23-24. The webpage for EACL 2012 is:
* NAACL-HLT 2012 is the 13th Annual Meeting of the North American
Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. It will
be held Montreal, Canada, June 3 – 8, 2012. The dates for the
NAACL-HLT workshops will be June 7 – 8. The webpage for NAACL-HLT
2012 is: http://www.naaclhlt2012.org/.
* ACL 2012 is the 50th Annual Meeting of the Association for
Computational Linguistics (ACL). It will be held in Jeju, Republic
of Korea, July 8 – 14, 2012. The ACL workshops will be held July
12 – 13. The webpage for ACL 2012 is: http://www.acl2012.org/.
Proposals will be jointly reviewed by the workshop organizers for all
Similarly to previous conferences, the submission and reviewing of
workshop proposals for EACL, NAACL-HLT, and ACL will be coordinated.
Proposals for workshops should contain:
1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic
2. The desired workshop length (one or two days), and an estimate of
the number of attendees.
3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
the organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research
interests and areas of expertise.
4. A list of potential members of the program committee, with an
indication of which members have already agreed.
5. A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.
6. A description of special requirements for technical needs.
7. A note specifying which venue(s) (EACL versus NAACL-HLT versus
ACL) would be acceptable to you; if all are acceptable, you may
express preference for one or the other.
There will be a single workshop committee, coordinated by the three sets
of workshop chairs. This single committee will review the quality of the
workshop proposals. Once the reviews are complete, the workshop chairs
will work together to assign workshops to each of the three conferences,
taking into account the location preferences given by the proposers.
The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find the ACL’s
general policies on workshops at
the financial policy for workshops at
and the financial policy for SIG workshops at
* Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the
no later than *October 28, 2011, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT*
(which is 18:59:59 EST, 15:59:59 PST, and 08:59:59 JST on Oct 29).
* Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later
than *November 11, 2011*.
Since the three conferences will occur at different times, the
timescales for the submission and reviewing of workshop papers, and the
preparation of camera-ready copies, will be different for each
conference. Suggested timescales for each of the conferences are given
below. Workshop organizers should not deviate from this schedule unless
Workshop organisers are also requested to pay attention to the fact that
there will be only a week between the notification of the workshop
acceptance and sending out the first CFPs for the workshop (in case of EACL
and ACL). Thus it is important that the workshop proposals are already well
structured and organised at the time of the submission, to allow quick launch
of the first CFP.
