The 26th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
December 11-16, 2016
The International Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL) is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the 26th International Conference on Computational Linguistics. COLING 2016 will take place at the Osaka International Convention Center (OICC) from 11th to 16th December 2016.
COLING covers a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. The conference will include full papers (presented as oral presentations or posters), demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops. In particular, there will be pre-conference tutorial sessions on 11th and 12th December 2016. Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the NLP/CL community are invited to submit Tutorial proposals for review.
Proposals for half-day or (exceptionally) full-day tutorials on all topics of computational linguistics and its applications are sought. Especially encouraged are also cross-disciplinary tutorials that educate the community about recent technical advancements that are of interest to computational linguistics, or introduce relevant algorithms and theories that may be known to specialists in these areas but are still unfamiliar to part of the natural language processing community.
The COLING 2016 organizers will set the fees, provide rooms, equipment, technical support, and coffee breaks for all the tutorials, and pay a single sum for each tutorial to be split among the instructors. Finally, each tutorial comes with one free conference registration.
Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the tutorial organizers (tutorial@ coling2016.anlp.jp) no later than
April 22nd May 5th, 2016, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT.
Notification of acceptance of tutorial proposals will occur no later than
May 06th May 16th, 2016. Organizers of accepted tutorials must then provide an abstract of their tutorial for inclusion in the conferences website by 3rd October 2016, and the tutorial electronic material by 11th November 2016.
