Call for Workshop Proposals

Workshop Chair:

Nicoletta Calzolari

The ACL'2000 Program Committee invites proposals for Workshops to be held in conjunction with the ACL'2000 Conference.

Areas of Interest

We welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL community. In addition to the traditional workshops areas, including both core issues in CL and NLP applications (such as MT, CLIR, speech related applications, etc.), we encourage proposals for workshops focussing on Asian language processing and fostering communication and cooperation between Western and Eastern (Asian) CL communities.


The Conference will be held October 3-6; Workshop dates will be scheduled before and/or after the conference.


Pre/Post Conference Workshop/Tutorials will be held at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).


Reviewing of Workshop proposals will be managed by an international Workshop Program Committee. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.
