ACL/HLT 2011 Student Session * June 19-24, 2011 * * Portland, Oregon, USA * www.acl2011.org/student_session.shtml ** Submission deadline: January 28th, 2011 ** 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, meet potential advisors, and receive feedback from the international research community. The Student Session's goal is to aid students at multiple stages of their education, though it is particularly well suited for those in their first years of graduate school or their final year of undergraduate training. Towards this goal, we invite papers in two separate categories. 1. Thesis Proposals: This category is appropriate for experienced students who wish to get feedback on their proposal and strengthen their final work. 2. Research Papers: Most appropriate for students new to academic conferences. Papers in this category can describe completed work, or work in progress with preliminary results. We hope that the different types of submissions will promote greater interaction between students at different stages in their research. Each accepted paper will be assigned an established researcher as a mentor, who will provide feedback on the work to the student at the conference. Submission Requirements Thesis Proposals may contain previously published work and must include specific 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. All authors of multi-author papers MUST be students. Papers submitted for this session are eligible only if they have not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Students who have already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL Student Research Workshop may not submit a research paper to this session. They should instead submit their papers either to the main conference or to the thesis proposals track. It must be indicated if a paper has been submitted to another conference or workshop. Submission Format Both paper and proposal submissions to the Student Session should follow the standard two-column format of the ACL 2011 proceedings. Submissions should have no more than four(4) pages of content plus one(1) additional page for references. LaTex and Microsoft Word style files are available on the conference website under Information for Authors. Submissions must conform to the official ACL 2011 style guidelines and they must be submitted in PDF.
