Call for Tutorials

CALLS Call for Tutorials

Overview

The International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING), the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL-HLT), the Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP), and the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) invite proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with COLING 2022, NAACL-HLT 2022, ACL 2022, or EMNLP 2022. We seek proposals in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include related disciplines.

We invite proposals for two types of tutorials:

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

Fee Waiving

Up to 3 instructors per tutorial can have their registration fees waived for the main conference and any subset of co-located tutorials and workshops.

Diversity And Inclusion

To foster a really inclusive culture in our field, we particularly encourage submissions from members of underrepresented groups in computational linguistics, i.e., researchers from any demographic or geographic minority, researchers with disabilities, among others. The overall diversity of the tutorial organizers and potential audience will be taken into account to ensure that the conference program is varied and balanced.

Tutorial proposals should describe and will be evaluated according to how the tutorial contributes to topics promoting diversity (e.g., working on minority languages, developing NLP for good), participation diversity (e.g., coordinating with social affinity groups, providing subsidies, making a promotional plan for the tutorial), and representation diversity among tutorial presenters. For more information or advice organizers may contact the NAACL 2022 D&I team, and consult resources such as the BIG directory, Black in AI, {Dis}ability in AI, Indigenous AI, LatinX in AI, Masakhane, 500 Queer Scientists, and Women-in-ML's directory.

Submission Details

Proposals should use the ARR paper submission format. Authors can download the LaTeX or Word template or use the Overleaf template. Proposals should not exceed 4 pages of content (plus unlimited pages for references), should be submitted as PDF documents, and should contain the following:

Tutorial proposals should be submitted online using the OpenReview system at the following link:
https://openreview.net/group?id=aclweb.org/ACL/2022/Tutorials. If you do not have an OpenReview account you will need to create one first. Complete your submission to the four conferences (ACL, COLING, EMNLP, NAACL-HLT) by clicking on “ACL 2022 Tutorial Submission”. Proposals will be reviewed jointly by the Tutorial Co-Chairs of the conferences and by a group of external experts.

Evaluation Criteria

Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated according to its clarity and preparedness, novelty or timely character of the topic, instructors’ experience, likely audience interest, open access of the tutorial instructional material, and diversity and inclusion.

Tutorial Instructor Responsibilities

Accepted tutorial presenters will be notified by 15 December 2021. They must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference registration material by the specific conference deadlines. The description should be in two formats: (a) an ASCII version that can be included in email announcements and published on the conference website, and (b) a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed instructions will be provided). Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials at least one month prior to the date of the tutorial (conditioned on the final venue). The final submitted tutorial materials must minimally include copies of the course slides and a bibliography for the material covered in the tutorial. After the conference, the presenters will be invited to update their slides in the ACL Anthology (if needed).
