Conference Call for Papers
The 2nd Conference of the Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 12th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing
The Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (AACL) hereby invites proposals to host the conference in the Asia-Pacific region around the beginning of December 2022. At this time, we seek preliminary draft proposals from prospective bidders in the Asia-Pacific region. Promising bidders will be asked to provide additional information for the final selection.
The AACL/IJCNLP 2022 Coordinating Committee, made up of representatives of the AACL and representatives from the AFNLP, will select the General Chair and the Program Committee Co-Chairs for the conference. Draft proposals should identify a Local Arrangements Chair, who will work with the General Chair and the Coordinating Committee to develop a detailed plan and budget.
To facilitate conference organization, bidders may delegate many tasks of their choice to a Professional Conference Organizer and/or to the ACL Office (Priscilla Rasmussen). Handy bid guidelines, including expense and task list templates and additional useful links are provided at: http://aclweb.org/adminwiki/index.php?title=Bid_Guidelines. The template for local expenses is available here: http://ftp.cs.toronto.edu/pub/gh/ACL-conference-bid-template-CURRENT.xlsx.
Bid Highlights: Draft proposals include information on the following:
Estimates of the anticipated number of registrants
Location (accessibility, including physical disability access; conference venue, e.g., convention center, hotel or university; accommodation; dining options; capability to host the registrants predicted)
Safety of the region/local neighborhood (venue and proposed accommodations) for all ethnicities, sexual orientations and genders, or a plan to ensure safety
Proposed dates. Religious and local national holidays should be avoided, as much as possible.
Local arrangements team (chair/co-chair, committee, volunteer labor, registration handling; description of any experience the team has had in organizing previous conferences and the number of participants at those conferences)
Local Computational Linguistics community (the size and impact of local R&D groups on NLP and related disciplines)
Meeting venues (space for sessions, tutorials, workshops, posters, exhibits, demos, small meetings and registration)
High-speed, all-ports-open, easy-to-use internet access
Catering, including breaks, receptions, poster sessions, banquet and entertainment (traditionally, dancing for participants at the banquet); access to food onsite for restricted diets (religious constraints/vegans/vegetarians/widespread allergies and intolerances such as gluten-free)
Local expenses estimates spreadsheet (using template provided, link above)
Evaluation: Proposals will be evaluated according to the following criteria (unordered):
Experience, flexibility, and openmindedness of local arrangements team
Local Computational Linguistics community support
Local government and industry support
Accessibility and attractiveness of proposed site
Suitability of proposed dates
Adequacy of conference and exhibit facilities for the anticipated number of registrants
Adequacy of residence accommodations and food services in a range of price categories and close to the conference facilities
Adequacy of expense projections
