FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS Student Research Workshop at ACL-05 http://www.aclweb.org/acl2005/ June 25-30 2005 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor 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-05 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. This year we will have two tracks for student papers: * TRACK 1: Original and unpublished research * TRACK 2: PhD thesis abstracts The research being presented can come from any topic areas within computational linguistics including, but not limited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-05 page, http://www.aclweb.org/acl2005/ 2. Submission Requirements The requirements for the papers depend on which of the two tracks you submit to. TRACK 1 The emphasis of first track is original and unpublished research. These papers should describe original work, still in progress. This track is aimed at students who have settled on their thesis direction but who still have significant research left to do. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research wherever appropriate. Requirements: - The papers may have more than one author; however, all authors MUST be students. - Paper submitted for this track 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 session may not submit to this track. TRACK 2 Those students in the final stages of their thesis should consider submitting instead to the second track for thesis abstracts. The emphasis is on presenting significant research towards a PhD, with the opportunity of getting feedback from the community before submitting the thesis. This track does not have the requirement that work be unpublished, and advanced students are also encouraged to submit their work to the main conference. Requirements: - The paper must be authored solely by the student. 3. Submission Procedure Submissions for both tracks 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 are now available from the web pages of ACL-05 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. 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: acl05-student at ics.mq.edu.au <http://www.ics.mq.edu.au/mailman/listinfo/alta-announce> 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) * Which track you are submitting to In addition, we ask you to submit a statement confirming that you are a student and have not presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session before. You can email this statement to acl05-student at ics.mq.edu.au <http://www.ics.mq.edu.au/mailman/listinfo/alta-announce> 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 8th, 2005. 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 March 26th, 2005. 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 8th, 2005 Notification of acceptance: March 26th, 2005 Camera ready papers due: April 25th, 2005 Conference date: June 25-30, 2005 6.
