International Conference on Gas Geochemistry 2015

First Joint Call for Tutorial Proposals

The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), the International
Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING), the Conference on
Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP), and the North
American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
(NAACL) invite proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with
ACL 2018, COLING 2018, EMNLP 2018, or NAACL 2018. We seek proposals for
tutorials in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly conceived
to include related disciplines such as linguistics, speech, information
retrieval and multimodal processing. We particularly welcome:
tutorials that cover advances in newly emerging areas not previously
covered in any ACL/COLING/EMNLP/NAACL related tutorial, or
tutorials that provide introductions into related fields that are
potentially relevant for the CL community (e.g., bioinformatics, social
media, human language processing, machine learning techniques).

Tutorials will be held at one of the following conference venues:
ACL 2018 is the 56th
Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics. It will
be held in Melbourne, Australia on July 15–20, 2018. The ACL tutorials
will be held on July 15th.
COLING 2018 is the
27th Biennial International Conference on Computational Linguistics
(COLING). It will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA on August 20-25,

  1. The COLING tutorials will be held on August 20-21.
    EMNLP 2018 is the SIGDAT conference on Empirical Methods in Natural
    Language Processing (EMNLP). EMNLP will be held later in 2018 (after the
    other three conferences). Exact details on dates and venue for EMNLP
    tutorials will be announced soon.
    NAACL 2018 is the
    16th Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the Association for
    Computational Linguistics (NAACL). It will be held in New Orleans,
    Louisiana, USA, June 1-6, 2018. The NAACL tutorials will be held on June

Please note: remuneration for tutorial presenters is fixed according to
the above policy and does not cover registration fees for the main

Submission Details
Proposals should be submitted as PDF documents. Proposals should
A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance
to the CL community (not more than 2 pages).

core content can be covered in a three-hour slot (including a coffee
break). In exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots are available as

The names, affiliations, email addresses and websites of the tutorial
instructors, including a one-paragraph statement of their research
interests and areas of expertise.

Please provide an estimate of the audience size for the tutorial. If the
same or a similar tutorial has been given before, a note specifying
where previous versions of the tutorial were given, how many attendees
were there, and how many attendees the tutorial attracted.

A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g.,
internet access).

A note specifying which venue(s) (ACL/COLING/EMNLP/NAACL) would be
acceptable and/or preferable. Please include a description of any
constraints that might make the tutorial compatible with only one of
these events, logistically, thematically, or otherwise.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted online using the START
Proposals will be reviewed jointly by the Tutorial Co-Chairs of the four
Tutorial Speaker Responsibilities
Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by February 1, 2018. They
must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the
conference registration material by the specific conference deadlines.
The description should be in two formats: an ASCII version that can be
included in email announcements and published on the conference website,
and a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed
instructions will be provided). Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial
materials, at least containing copies of the course slides as well as a
bibliography for the material covered in the tutorial, by the deadlines
specified for the four conferences, to be determined later.

at the UNESCO
Headquarters in Paris. Two of our co-leaders will actively participate
at this meeting. Iain Stewart (University of Plymouth, U.K.) will focus
on the importance of Geosciences for Society and moderate a debate on
the prospective vision for the future of IGCP. Manuel Sintubin
(Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) will reflect on the role of
IGCP in geohazard mitigation
based on the success of IGCP567.

ICGG-13 will cover all the main scientific topics associated with
gas geochemistry. the theme of ICGG-13 will be From Conventional to
Non-conventional Gases.

Field Trips

Following our 2nd INQUA-IGCP567 International Workshop on
Active Tectonics, Earthquake Geology, Archaeology and
held from 18 to 24 September 2011 in Corinth, Greece, Andreas Vött
(University of Mainz, Germany) is preparing a special volume on in the
Zeitschrift für Geomorphologie. This is a peer-review ISI-indexed
journal and hosted up to now three special volumes on tsunamis. If you
are interested to contribute to this volume, please contact Andreas Vött

A four-day fieldtrip is proposed to the main areas with unique
geological characteristics and diverse of gases phenomena and special
natural and cultural attractions of Sichuan Province including active
tectonics of Tibetan Plateau and adjacent region, the spectacular
earthquake surface rupture zones related to the 2008 Ms 8.0 Wenchuan
earthquake, earthquake induced geological disasters and other earthquake
relics in the Longmen Shan mountains, and massive travertine landscape
in Songpan, as well as unique landscape from Tibetan Plateau to Sichuan
Basin(Chengdu plain). We will also have chance to see an outcrop of the
Cambrian black shale, one of the shale gas target in the Sichuan Basin
and a hot spring monitoring site of earthquake along the Longmen Shan
mountain. The field trip is about 4 days. It will begin at later
afternoon of 27, August immediately after the closing ceremony and will
likely end at later night of 31, August. We will back Chengdu at the
night of 31, August. Please plan your trip back accordingly in case of
missing the flights back. We will have a guide book soon.

chemistry to unconventional natural gas resources like shale gas and
tight gas, to novel technique of noble gas, as well as to
non-traditional application domain like environment).
