The HLT/NAACL 2004 Committee invites
proposals for workshops in HLT/NAACL 2004, to be held in The Park
Plaza Hotel, Boston, May 2-7, 2004.
Workshops will be held on May 6-7.
HLT/NAACL 2004 is the second conference in the
HLT/NAACL series, the first having been held in May 2003, in Edmonton,
Alberta. HLT/NAACL combines the HLT and NAACL (North American Chapter
of the Association for Computational Linguistics) conference series.
For details please see http://www.hlt-naacl04.org. A
major goal of HLT/NAACL 2004 is to bring together researchers
from the NLP, Speech and IR communities, to identify to identify and
attempt to develop solutions to problems of common interest to the
Given the stated goal of HLT/NAACL 2004,
preference will be given to workshops that are likely to be of
interest to at least two out of the three of the NLP, Speech and IR
communities. We therefore encourage workshop proposers to include in
their proposals a description of how their workshop will appeal to
more than one community.
Proposals for workshops should contain:
- A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and
content. If the workshop is part of a series, please list previous
- The desired workshop length (one or two days), and an estimate of
the audience size.
- The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses
of the organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research
interests and areas of expertise.
- A description of special requirements for technical needs (computer
Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, as
soon as possible, but no later than November 1, 2003. Either plain
(ASCII) text or PDF is acceptable, but unless special formatting is
particularly needed, we would encourage you to use plain text since
there is generally no problem with portability of plain text. The
subject line should be: "HLT/NAACL 2004 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL".
PLEASE NOTE: PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BY REGULAR MAIL OR
FAX. Submissions should be mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accepted workshop organizers must provide descriptions
of their workshops for inclusion in the conference registration
material by Feb 1, 2004. The description must be provided in two
formats: an ASCII version that can be included with the email
announcement, and an HTML version that can be included on the
conference home page. These descriptions should be mailed to: email@example.com.
Organizers must provide full workshop materials to the
Proceedings Chair by March 1, 2004.
Also please note two other important dates. In order to
make sure that workshops, once accepted, proceed in a timely manner,
we require that the workshop Call for Papers be distributed no later
than November 21, 2003. If the workshop organizers wish, they may vet
their CFP's with the workshop chairs, but in any case the final
version must be submitted for publication to Priscilla Rasmussen no later
than November 21.
We also strongly suggest that the submission deadline
for papers be set no later than January 21, 2004, in order to allow
enough time for reviews and the submission of revised versions of the
accepted papers. Note that the final workshop materials must be
received by the Publications Chair by March 1, 2004.
Workshops must be financially self-supporting. The
conference organizers will establish workshop registration rates so as
to provide the room, audio-visual equipment, internet access, snacks
for breaks, and the workshop proceedings.
In the case of ACL SIG workshops, specific policies on
sponsorship and financial support appears at http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/index-policies.html.
