Call for Workshops

The GSCL 2017 Programme Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the GSCL conference. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL/GSCL communities, including, but not limited to topics in Natural Language Processing or interdisciplinary research areas between Computational Linguistics and other research fields (Artificial Intelligence, Interactive Systems, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Web 2.0, Semantic Web, Big Data, Autonomous Systems, psychology etc.).

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss current topics in a small and interactive atmosphere. They can concentrate in an in-depth way on research topics, but can also be devoted to application issues, or to questions concerning the economic and social aspects of NLP and web mining. Although we encourage workshops on novel and original topics, we also accept successors to workshops at previous GSCL, ACL or related conferences.

Workshops will be half-day or full-day and will be held on 11 and 12 September 2017.

Proposals will be reviewed by the Organising Committee.

Submission Details

Proposals for workshops should contain:

  1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and content.
  2. An estimate of the number of attendees.
  3. The desired workshop length: half-day or full-day.
  4. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the organisers, with one-paragraph statements of their research interests and areas of expertise.
  5. A list of potential members of the workshop program committee, with an indication of which members have already agreed to serve.

Please submit proposals in PDF attached to an email no later than March 31, 2017 to gscl2017@dfki.de. The subject line should be: “GSCL 2017: Workshop Proposal”.

The workshop organisers are expected to coordinate the circulation of their Calls for Papers, organising the workshop submission and reviewing process, and for publishing the workshop proceedings. Workshop organisers can use the GSCL 2017 conference management system if necessary. Workshop organisers can apply for financial support with the leaders of the respective GSCL Special Interest Groups. Furthermore, workshop organisers can ask for additional fees in order to cover the costs of, for example, invited speakers.

The successful proposers will be notified by 07 April 2017.
