Call for Workshops

CALLS Call for Workshops

Proposal Submission Deadline: October 20, 2021

Notification of Acceptance: November 20, 2021

The Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with COLING 2022, ACL 2022, NAACL-HLT 2022, or EMNLP 2022. We solicit proposals in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include related disciplines such as linguistics, speech, information retrieval, and multimodal processing.
Workshops will be held at one of the following conference venues:

* COLING 2022 (The 2022 International Conference on Computational Linguistics) will be held in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea from October 12 through October 17, 2022, with workshops to be held on October 16-17 2022: http://coling2022.org/

* ACL 2022 (The 60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics) will be held in Dublin, Ireland from May 22 through 27, 2022, with workshops to be held on May 26 and 27 2022: https://2022.aclweb.org/

* NAACL-HLT 2022 (The 2022 Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics - Human Language Technologies) will be held in Seattle, Washington from July 10 through July 15, 2022, with workshops to be held on July 14-15 2022: https://2022.naacl.org/

* EMNLP 2022 (The 2022 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing) TBA

The workshop co-chairs will work together to assign workshops to the four conferences, taking into account the location preferences and technical constraints provided by the workshop proposers.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Proposals should be submitted as PDF documents. Note that submissions should essentially be ready to be turned into a Call for Workshop Papers within one week of notification (see Timelines below).

The proposals should be at most two pages for the main proposal + at most two additional pages for information about organizers, program committee, and references. Thus the whole proposal should not be more than FOUR pages long.

The two pages for the main proposal must include:

Note that the only financial support available to workshops is a single free workshop registration for an invited speaker; all other costs must be borne independently by the workshop organizers.

The two pages for information about organizers, program committee, and references must include:

The proposals should be submitted no later than October 20, 2021, 11:59 PM Samoa Standard Time (SST) (UTC/GMT-11).

Submission is electronic. You can send the application proposals to the Email workshops-all-2022@googlegroups.com with title giving the preferred venue and "workshop proposals".

The workshop proposals will be evaluated according to their originality and impact, as well as the quality of the organizing team and Programme Committee. In addition, to estimate the attendance of the different workshops, a survey mechanism will be implemented, where attendees of ACL, NAACL, COLING and EMNLP events from the past 3-5 years will be able to indicate which workshops they would like to attend in 2022.

WORKSHOPS ON COVID-19

We explicitly encourage the submissions of workshops on the topic of research around COVID-19.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

The proposals should describe the ways in which the workshop will support diversity in NLP. We suggest organizers consider the following points, while developing the proposal:

WORKSHOP ORGANIZER RESPONSIBILITIES

The organizers of the accepted proposals will be responsible for publicizing and running the workshop, including reviewing submissions, producing the camera-ready workshop proceedings, organizing the meeting days, and playing their part to ensure that all participants are aware of ACL’s anti-harassment policy. It is crucial that organizers commit to all deadlines. In particular, failure to produce the camera-ready proceedings on time will lead to the exclusion of the workshop from the unified proceedings and author indexes. Workshop organizers cannot accept submissions for publication that will be (or have been) published elsewhere, although they are free to set their own policies on simultaneous submission and review. Since the conferences will occur at different times, the timelines for the submission and reviewing of workshop papers, and the preparation of cameraready copies, will be different for each conference. Suggested timelines for each of the conferences are given below. The workshop organizers should not deviate from this schedule unless absolutely necessary, and with explicit agreement from the relevant Workshop Chairs.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find the ACL’s general policies on workshops, the financial policy for workshops, and the financial policy for SIG workshops at: http://aclweb.org/adminwiki/index.php?title=Conference_Handbook
