Uppsala, Sweden, July 11-16, 2010

Mentoring service -- http://acl2010.org/mentoring.htm

ACL is providing a mentoring (coaching) service for authors from regions
of the world where English is less emphasized as a language of
scientific exchange. Many authors from these regions, although able to
read the scientific literature in English, have little or no experience
in writing papers in English for conferences such as the ACL meetings.
The service will be arranged as follows. A set of potential mentors will
be identified by Mentoring Service Chairs Björn Gambäck (SICS, Sweden
and NTNU, Norway) and Diana McCarthy (Lexical Computing Ltd., UK), who
will organize this service for ACL 2010. If you would like to take
advantage of the service for a submission to the main conference, to the
Student Research Workshop, to the system demonstration session, or to
one of the workshops, please upload your paper in PDF format using the
paper submission software for the mentoring service available at:


The deadline for the mentoring service is SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE
RESPECTIVE SUBMISSION DEADLINE. An appropriate mentor will be assigned
to your paper and the mentor will get back to you no later than two
weeks before the submission deadline.

Please note that this service is for the benefit of the authors as
described above. It is not a general mentoring service for authors to
improve the technical content of their papers.

Questions about the mentoring service should be referred to
mentoring at acl2010.org.
