Call for Papers Student Research Workshop during EACL-03 11th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics, Budapest, Hungary April 12-17 2003 This information can also be found at http://www.coli.un i-sb.de/conf/eacl03-student/ submission deadline: November 15th 2002 Note: The exact dates of the Workshop have not been firmly established yet. It is expected that the session will be part of the main conference, April 15-17 2003 1. General Invitation for Submissions The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at EACL 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. Participants will have the opportunity to get feedback both from a wide audience in general and from selected panellists, experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation. In order to widen participation, we hope to make funding and very reasonably priced accommodation available for attending the conference. More details will be posted on the Student Research Workshop website. We would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. As the main mission of the workshop is to provide feedback, the emphasis will be on work in progress. Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas: * pragmatics * discourse * semantics * syntax * lexicon * phonetics and phonology * morphology * linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language * information retrieval * information extraction * question answering * summarization * generation * speech recognition and synthesis * corpus-based language modelling * multi-lingual processing * machine translation and translation aids * spoken and written natural language interfaces, dialogue systems * language in multi-modal systems * message and narrative understanding systems Papers reporting research on less-studied European and African/Mediterranean languages are particularly encouraged. The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops and research notes. Further information on these will be made available on the Main Conference website, http://www.conferences.hu/eacl03 2. Submission Requirements Papers should describe original work, either in progress or completed. It will therefore normally be open only 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 should be submitting instead to the main conference. 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. A student who has already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be allowed to present again at the student session of any of these conferences, but encouraged to submit instead to the main conference. Please note that a letter from your supervisor will be required to confirm that you meet these criteria. 3. Submission Procedure Submissions should follow the two-column format of EACL/ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of EACL latex style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's conference. Full details on formatting and submission (including the supervisor's letter mentioned in 2 above) will soon be available from the web pages of the workshop. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred. Papers should be sent by email in PostScript and PDF format to the following address: students_(on)_eacl.org 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 made based on the results of the review. Note that reviewing of papers will be blind; therefore, please, make sure you do not put the author(s) name(s) on the title page. You should not have any self-identifying references anywhere in the paper submitted for review. For example, you can't have a reference like this "We showed previously (Smith, 1991), ..." Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991)..." 5. Schedule Submissions must be received by Friday November 15th, 2002. Late submissions (those arriving on or after November 16th, 2002) will be automatically disqualified. The student workshop committee is not responsible for postal delays or other mailing problems. For electronic submissions, all time zones will be taken into account). Acknowledgement will be emailed soon after receipt. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors (by email) on January 15th, 2003. Detailed formatting guidelines for the preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors with their acceptance notice. 6. Timetable Important dates: Paper submissions deadline: November 15th, 2002 Notification of acceptance: January 15th, 2003 Camera ready papers due: February 15th, 2003 EACL conference April 12th-17th, 2003 7.
