Call for Tutorial ProposalsProposals are invited for the Tutorial Program for NAACL-HLT 2007, to be held at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York on April 22-27, 2007; the tutorial day is Sunday, April 22, 2007. The NAACL-HLT conferences combine the HLT (Human Language Technology) and NAACL (North American chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics) conference series, and bring together researchers in NLP, IR, and speech. For details, see http://www.cs.rochester.edu/meetings/hlt-naacl07/
We seek half-day tutorials covering topics in Speech Processing, Information Retrieval, and Natural Language Processing, including their theoretical foundations, intersections, and applications. Tutorials will normally move quickly, but they are expected to be accessible, understandable, and of interest to a broad community of researchers, preferably from multiple areas of Human Language Technology. Our target is to have 4-6 tutorials.
SUBMISSION DETAILSProposal format may be in (ASCII) text, HTML, or PDF. Proposals should be submitted by October 15, using the START conference reviewing system. The submissions form is available at http://www.softconf.com/hlt/HLTT07/submit.html
Proposals should contain:
PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENTSAccepted tutorial speakers will be asked to provide descriptions of their tutorials suitable for inclusion in all of: email announcements, the conference registration material, the printed program, the website, and the proceedings. This will involve producing text and/or HTML and/or LaTeX/Word/PDF versions of appropriate lengths.
Tutorial notes will be printed and distributed by the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). These materials, containing at least copies of the slides that will be presented and a bibliography for the material that will be covered, must be submitted by the date indicated below to allow adequate time for reproduction. Presenters retain copyright for their materials, but ACL requires that presenters execute a non-exclusive distribution license to permit distribution to participants and sales to others.
Tutorial presenters will be compensated in accordance with current ACL policies; see http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/tutorial-payment-policy.html.
