PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS Student Research Workshop at ACL-04 http://www.acl2004.org July 21-26, 2004 Barcelona, Spain 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. One paper will be selected for the ACL-04 Student Research Workshop Best Paper Award. 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. Original and unpublished research is therefore invited on all aspects of computational linguistics including, but not limited to, these topic areas: *pragmatics, discourse, semantics,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 also features tutorials, workshops, and demos. More information on these can be found at the main ACL-04 page, http://www.acl2004.org. 2. Submission Requirements Papers should describe original work, still in progress. Submission 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 consider submitting instead to the main conference. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research wherever appropriate. The papers may have more than one author; however, all authors MUST be students. Please note: 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 under identification information (see submission guidelines below). Students who have already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session may not present at a student session again, but are encouraged to submit to the main conference instead. 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 soon be available from the web pages of ACL-04 and the student research workshop. A description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use these style files directly. Submission must be electronic. The following formats are acceptable: PostScript (.ps), Rich Text Format ACL style (.rtf), Microsoft Word ACL style (.doc) and PDF (.pdf). The electronic submissions should be sent in an attachment to the following e-mail address: acl04-student_(on)_list.cs.brow n.edu. In the body of the e-mail, please include the following identification information: *Title: *Author(s) name(s), affiliation, and e-mail addresses *Topic Area: (one or two general topic areas, see list above) *Keywords: Up to 5 keywords specifying the subject area *Under Consideration for Other Conferences: (if yes, please specify) *Abstract: short summary (up to 5 lines) In addition, we ask you to submit a CV, or a letter from your advisor indicating that you meet the submission requirements specified in Section 2. 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 March 8th, 2004. 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 26th, 2004. 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: March 8th, 2004 Notification of acceptance: April 26th, 2004 Camera ready papers due: May 25th, 2004 6. Travel Grants Some funding will be available for students attending the conference. Student presenters will be given first priority in the evaluation of travel grant applications.
