The 26th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
December 11-16, 2016
The International Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL) is pleased to invite proposals for workshops 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 - 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. Oral and poster presentations of full papers will not be distinguished in the proceedings of the conference.
There will be pre-conference workshop sessions on 11th - 12th December 2016. Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the NLP/CL community are invited to submit Workshop proposals for review.
COLING workshops are aimed at raising discussions in a very interactive way, thus creating a breeding ground for open questions, novel and emerging ideas in NLP/CL in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. It is expected that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and engagement by all participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community-building initiatives are particularly encouraged. Workshop organizers are free to decide the best format of their workshop.
Workshop submissions should essentially be ready to be turned into a Call for Workshop Papers.
Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the workshop organisers (email@example.com) no later than
April 22nd May 5th, 2016, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT.
Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later than
May 06th May 16th, 2016.
Organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for publicising and running the workshop, including reviewing submissions and producing the camera-ready workshop proceedings.
It is crucial that organisers 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 author indexes. Workshop organisers cannot accept for publication papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere, although they are free to set their own policies on simultaneous submission and review. The COLING 2016 organisers will set the workshop fees, provide rooms, equipment, technical support, coffee breaks.
