Final Call for Papers Student Research Workshop at the joint ACL/EACL 2001 Meeting July 6-11, 2001 Toulouse, France submission deadline: February 12, 2001 paper registration deadline: February 5, 2001 The information below can also be found at this URL: www.science.uva.nl/%7Echristof/acl01-student/ Note: The exact dates of the Workshop have not been firmly established yet. Tentatively, the Workshop may take place anytime between 6th and 11th of July, 2001. 1. General Invitation for Submissions The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL conferences. The main purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. We would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. Seeing that the main mission of the student workshop is to provide the participants with a wide audience and useful feedback, the emphasis of the workshop will be on work in progress. For the Student Workshop, original, and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas: - pragmatics - discourse - semantics - syntax and the lexicon - phonetics - phonology and morphology - interpreting and generating spoken and written language - linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language - language-oriented information retrieval and information extraction - corpus-based language modeling - machine translation and translation aids - natural language interfaces and dialogue systems - approaches to coordinating the linguistic with other modalities in multi-media systems - message and narrative understanding systems The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops, and demos. See the Main ACL/EACL 2001 page for information: www.irit.fr/ACTIVITES/EQ_ILPL/aclWeb/acl2001.html 2. Submission Requirements Papers should describe original work in progress. The main purpose of presenting at the workshop is to exchange ideas with other researchers and to receive helpful feedback for further development of the work. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research wherever appropriate. The papers can have more than one author; however, all authors MUST be students. A paper accepted for presentation at the Student Workshop cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate this immediately after the title material on the first page. 3. Submission Procedure Paper Registration Registration of your submission is required. This can be done by filling out a form available at the web site of the workshop: www.science.uva.nl/%7Echristof/acl01-student/ After you fill out and submit this form, a unique ID number will be generated and sent to you in an e-mail shortly after the paper registration. You will then be able to use this ID number instead of your name on the title page of the paper and in any subsequent correspondence with the workshop co-chairs. If you are unable to use the on-line form for paper registration or experience problems using it, please, send email to acl01-student_(on)_science.uva.nl Submission format Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and should not exceed six (6) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of ACL latex style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's conference. These will soon be available from the web site: www.science.uva.nl/%7Echristof/acl01-student/ These style files allow for a graceful transition to the style required for publication. A description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use these style files directly.

Reviewing Procedure Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs, each of whom will have the assistance of a team of reviewers.
