Call for Tutorial Proposals
Geneva, Switzerland, 22 August, 2004

The Coling 2004 Tutorial Organising Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Programme for Coling 2004. The tutorials will be held 22 August, 2004, immediately preceding the main conference 23-27 August, 2004.

  • Pre-requisites expected from participants
  • Any special requirements for technical needs (beamer, computer infrastructure, etc.)

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text or PDF as soon as possible, but no later than 30 December 2003 to . The subject line should be: "COLING 2004 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".

Notification of acceptance will be sent to proposers by 16 January, 2004.


Accepted tutorial speakers must provide final descriptions of their tutorials for inclusion in the Conference Registration material by 21 May, 2004.
