ACL 2013 Student Research Workshop

5-7 August, 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria

** Submission deadline: Sunday, March 3, 2013 **

General Invitation for Submissions

The ACL Student Session provides a venue for student researchers
investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural
Language Processing to present their research, to meet potential
advisors, and to receive feedback from the international research
community. The Student Session's goal is to aid students at
multiple stages of their education: from those in the final
stages of undergraduate training to those who are preparing their
graduate thesis proposal. Towards this goal, we invite papers in
two separate categories.

1. Thesis/Research Proposals: This category is appropriate for
   experienced students who wish to get feedback on their
   proposal and broader ideas for the field in order to
   strengthen their final research.

2. Research Papers: Most appropriate for students who are new to
   academic conferences. Papers in this category can describe
   completed work or work in progress with preliminary results.

Subject to the availability of established researcher volunteers,
each accepted paper will be assigned a mentor, who will provide
feedback on the work to the student at the conference.
Separately, the committee will do its best to assign
pre-submission mentors to students who wish to get feedback
before the paper deadline. This service will be available on a
first come, first served basis and does not guarantee acceptance
into the workshop. Students who wish to take advantage of this
opportunity should let the the co-chairs know via email no later
than Saturday, December 29, 2012 and should submit a paper draft
no later than Friday, January 18, 2013.

Topics Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not
limited to, the following areas (in alphabetical order): 
Cognitive modeling of language processing and psycholinguistics 
Dialogue and interactive systems  Discourse, coreference and
pragmatics  Evaluation methods  Information retrieval 
Language resources  Lexical semantics and ontologies  Low
resource language processing  Machine translation: methods,
applications and evaluation  Multilinguality in NLP  NLP
applications  NLP and creativity  NLP for the languages of
Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans  NLP for the Web and
social media  Question answering  Semantics  Sentiment
analysis, opinion mining and text classification  Spoken
language processing  Statistical and Machine Learning methods in
NLP  Summarization and generation  Syntax and parsing  Tagging
and chunking  Text mining and information extraction  Word

Submission Requirements

Thesis/Research Proposals may contain previously published work
and must include specific research directions. They may also be
in the style of a position paper that surveys and critiques
existing literature, but must suggest future research directions.
Proposals may only have one author, who must be a student.

Research Papers must describe original completed work or work in
progress and should clearly indicate directions for future
research wherever appropriate. The first author of multi-author
papers MUST be a student, though it is not required that
additional co-authors be students. Research Papers must not have
been presented at any other meeting with publicly available
published proceedings. Students who have already presented at a
past ACL/EACL/NAACL Student Research Workshop may not be the
first author on a Research Paper (though they may still be the
first author of a Thesis/Research Proposal). They should instead
submit their papers either to the main conference or to the
Thesis/Research Proposal track. Students must indicate whether a
paper has been submitted to another conference or workshop.

Electronic Submission

Submission is electronic, using the Softconf submission software
(URL to be announced in subsequent versions of this call)

Submission Format

Both paper and proposal submissions to the Student Session should
follow the standard two-column format of the ACL 2013
proceedings. Submissions should have no more than six (6) pages
excluding references (LaTeX and Microsoft Word style files will
be available on the main conference website http://acl2013.org/).
Submissions must conform to the official ACL 2013 style
guidelines and they must be submitted as a PDF file.

The reviewing process will be double-blind; therefore, please
ensure that the paper does not include the authors' names and
affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991)
...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith
previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Further guidelines are
provided in the template style files.

Multiple-submission policy

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications must indicate this at submission time. Authors of
papers accepted for presentation at ACL 2013 must notify the
program chairs by April 21, 2013 as to whether the paper will be
presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the
conference in order for them to appear in the proceedings. We
will not accept for publication or presentation papers that
overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will
be (or have been) published elsewhere. Authors submitting more
than one paper to ACL must ensure that submissions do not overlap
significantly (> 50%) with each other in content or results.
