General Invitation for Submissions
The ACL Student Session provides a venue for student researchers
investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language
Processing to present their research, meet potential advisors, and
receive feedback from the international research community.
The Student Session?s goal is to aid students at multiple stages of
their education, though it is particularly well suited for those in
their first years of graduate school or their final year of
undergraduate training. Towards this goal, we invite papers in two
1. Thesis Proposals: This category is appropriate for experienced
students who wish to get feedback on their proposal and strengthen
their final work.
2. Research Papers: Most appropriate for students new to academic
conferences. Papers in this category can describe completed work, or
work in progress with preliminary results.
We hope that the different types of submissions will promote greater
interaction between students at different stages in their research.
Each accepted paper will be assigned an established researcher as a
mentor, who will provide feedback on the work to the student at the
Thesis Proposals may contain previously published work and must
include specific research directions. Proposals may only have one
author, who must be a student.
Research Papers must describe original completed work or work in
progress and should clearly indicate directions for future research
wherever appropriate. All authors of multi-author papers MUST be
students. Papers submitted for this session 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 a ?research?
paper to this session. They should instead submit their papers either
to the main conference or to the ?thesis proposals? track. It must be
indicated if a paper has been submitted to another conference or
Both paper and proposal submissions to the Student Session should
follow the standard two-column format of the ACL 2011 proceedings.
Submissions should have no more than four(4) pages of content plus
one(1) additional page for references. LaTex and Microsoft Word style
files are available on the conference website under Information for
Authors. Submissions must conform to the official ACL 2011 style
guidelines and they must be submitted in PDF.
