Call for Tutorial Proposals
LORIA, Nancy, 29/30 July 2000

The Coling 2000 Tutorial Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program for Coling 2000, which is to be held in Nancy, Saarbrücken and Luxemburg, July 29th - August 6th 2000. The tutorials will be held in Nancy, July 29th-30th, immediately preceding the main conference. Bus facilities will be provided to go to Saarbrücken on Sunday 30th July.

Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its core content can be covered in a three hours tutorial slot (including a 30 minute break). In exceptional cases, 6-hour tutorial slots are possible as well.

It is hoped that it will be possible to accomodate a large number of high quality proposals for tutorial. However, proposers are encouraged to submit as early as possible to ensure that appropriate arrangements can be made to accomodate all accepted tutorial sessions. Electronic submission would be greatly appreciated.
