3rd CFP: EACL 2009 Student Research Workshop 1. General Invitation for Submissions EACL-2009 will continue the tradition of providing a forum for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. Participants will have the opportunity to get feedback both from a wide audience in general and from selected panelists -- experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation. The European Association of Computational Linguistics would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the 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 Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas: * pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax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 * linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language * information retrieval, information extraction, question answering * summarization and paraphrasing * speech recognition, speech synthesis * corpus-based language modeling * multi-lingual processing, machine translation, translation aids * spoken and written natural language interfaces, dialogue systems * multi-modal language processing, multimedia systems * message and narrative understanding systems The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops and research notes. Further information on these is available at the main conference website: http://www.eacl2009.gr/conference/. 2. Submission Requirements 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. It will therefore normally be open to students who have settled on their thesis direction but who still have significant research left to do; those students in the final stages of their thesis are encouraged to submit to the main conference. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research where 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 proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate this immediately after the title material on the first page. Students who have previously presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be eligible to present again at the student session of any of these conferences. These students are instead encouraged to submit to the main conference. 3. Submission Procedure Submissions should follow the two-column formal of EACL/ACL proceedings.The maximum length of a manuscript is eight (8) pages of content and one (1) additional page of references. The page limits have to be strictly observed. We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's conference. They are available at http://www.eacl2009.gr/conference/authors. A description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use the style files directly. Papers must conform to the official EACL 2009 style guidelines, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font size restrictions. Submissions should be in PDF format and must include all fonts, so that the paper will print (not just view) anywhere. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should 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) ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. The deadline for submission is 23:59 CET on October 24, 2008. Please submit your paper via the following link: https://www.softconf.com/eacl09/student/submit.html Additional instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the conference website at http://www.eacl2009.gr/conference/studentresearchworkshop. 4. Reviewing Procedure The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs and a team of reviewers. Each submission will be matched with a mixed panel of student and senior researchers for review. The final acceptance decision will be based on the results of the review. 5. Student sponsorship The EACL has a limited number of student sponsorships available to student participants of the EACL 2009 main conference, the EACL 2009 poster/demo session and/or the EACL 2009 student research workshop. Priority is given to students from Eastern Europe and more generally, to students from countries with hard currency problems (within the geographical area covered by EACL). A request for student sponsorship for EACL 2009 should include the following information: * Name, email address, affiliation and status (PhD year etc.) of the candidate * Source and amount of yearly income * Letter of motivation * Proof of student status * Copy of acceptance letter from programme chair / student workshop chair or poster/demo chair * Letter of recommendation from supervisor * Overview of the estimated costs Requests for student sponsorships can be directed to the EACL at secretary_(at)_eacl.org 6.
