(Please distribute. Apologies for multiple postings.) ********************************************************************* 2nd CALL FOR PAPERS STUDENT RESEARCH WORKSHOP at COLING/ACL-2006 http://www.acl2006.mq.edu.au/cfp/student-workshops 17th-21st July 2006 Sydney, Australia Submission deadline: February 28, 2006 ********************************************************************* 1. General Invitation for Submissions The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL conferences. The workshop provides a venue for student researchers investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing to present their work and receive feedback. Participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback both from the general audience and from selected panelists -- experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation. We invite all student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. As the main goal of the workshop is to provide feedback, the emphasis is on work in progress. The research being presented can come from any topic areas within computational linguistics including, but not limited to: • 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 also features tutorials, workshops, and demos. More information on these can be found at the main ACL-06 page, http://www.acl2006.org/ . 2. Submission Requirements The emphasis of the workshop is on original and unpublished research. The papers should describe original work, still in progress. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research wherever appropriate. • The papers may have more than one author; however, all authors MUST be students (graduate or undergraduate). • Paper submitted 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. 3. Submission Procedure 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 be available from the web pages of ACL-06 and the Student Research Workshop. A description of the format is also available in case you are unable to use these style files directly. Submission must be electronic. Details regarding the submission procedure will be posted on the workshop website: http://www.acl2006.mq.edu.au/cfp/student-workshops . 4. Reviewing Procedure Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs, with the assistance of 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. Note that reviewing of papers will be blind; therefore, please make sure your paper shows the title, but no author information. You should likewise not have any self-identifying references anywhere in the paper submitted for review. For example, rather than this: "We showed previously (Smith, 2001), ...", use citations such as: "Smith (2001) previously showed ...". 5. Schedule Submissions must be received by February 28th, 2006. Late submissions will be automatically disqualified. Acknowledgment will be e-mailed soon after receipt. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors (by e-mail) on April 28th, 2006. Detailed formatting guidelines for the preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors with their acceptance notice. Important Dates: Paper submissions deadline: February 28th, 2006 Notification of acceptance: April 28th, 2006 Camera ready papers due: May 19th, 2006 Conference date: July 17-21, 2006 6. Travel Grants Some funding will be available for students whose work is accepted to the Student Research Workshop.
