NAACL-HLT 2013 & ACL 2013 & EMNLP 2013

The North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL), The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), and ACL SIGDAT invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the NAACL-HLT, ACL, or EMNLP conferences in 2013. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL communities. Workshops will be held at one of the following conference venues:

  • NAACL-HLT 2013 is the 14th Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. It will be held in Atlanta, GA, USA, June 9 - 15, 2013. The dates for the NAACL-HLT workshops will be June 13 - 14.
  • ACL 2013 is the 51st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). It will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, August 4 - 9, 2013. The ACL workshops will be held August 8 - 9. The webpage for ACL 2013 is:
  • EMNLP 2013 is SIGDAT's annual Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing. It will be held in Seattle, WA, USA, in October 2013. The exact dates and venue are to be determined. One day of workshops are planned after a 3-day main conference, although proposals for a longer associated event will be considered.

Proposals will be reviewed jointly by the workshop organizers for the conferences.


Proposals for workshops should contain:

  1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and content.
  2. The desired workshop length (one or two days) and an estimate of the number of attendees.
  3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the organizers, with one-paragraph statements of their research interests and areas of expertise.
  4. A list of potential members of the program committee, with an indication of which members have already agreed.
  5. A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.
  6. A description of special requirements for technical needs.
  7. A note specifying which venue(s) (NAACL-HLT/ACL/EMNLP) would be acceptable and/or preferable.

There will be a single workshop committee, coordinated by the workshop chairs. This single committee will review the quality of the workshop proposals. Once the reviews are complete, the workshop chairs will work together to assign workshops to all three of the conferences, taking into account the location preferences given by the proposers.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find the ACL's general policies on workshops at, the financial policy for workshops at, and the financial policy for SIG workshops at

Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the workshop organizers no later than November 30, 2012, 23:59:59 UTC/GMT.
