Student Research Workshop
at Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing 2011 (RANLP 2011)
12-14 September 2011, Hissar, Bulgaria

Second Call for Papers

Further to the first successful and highly competitive Student Research
Workshop associated with the conference 'Recent Advances in Natural Language
Processing' (RANLP 2009), we are pleased to announce the second edition of
the workshop which will be held during the main RANLP 2011 conference days
on 12-14 September 2011. This year the conference and the workshop will take
place in a new location (Hissar, Bulgaria). Hissar is a known spa resort,
located in the center of Bulgaria and surrounded by plenty of historical
towns and natural landmarks worth to be visited.

The International Conference RANLP 2011 would like to invite students at all
levels (Bachelor-, Master-, and PhD-students) to present their ongoing work
at the Student Research Workshop. The aim of this workshop is to facilitate
the exchange of knowledge between young researchers by providing an
excellent opportunity to present and discuss their work in progress or
completed projects to an international research audience and receive
feedback from senior researchers. The research being presented can come from
any topic area within natural language processing and computational
linguistics, including but not limited to the following topic areas:

    Anaphora Resolution, Corpus Linguistics, Discourse, Electronic
Dictionaries, Evaluation, Finite-State Technology, Formal Grammars and
Languages, Information Extraction, Information Retrieval, Lexical Knowledge
Acquisition, Lexicography, Machine Learning, Machine Translation,
Mathematical Models and Complexity, Morphology, Multilingual NLP, Natural
Language Generation, Natural Language in Multimodal and Multimedia Systems,
Natural Language Interraction, Natural Language Processing in
Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Natural Language Processing for
Biomedical Texts, Ontologies, Opinion Mining, Parsing, Part-of-Speech
Tagging, Phonology, Post-Editing, Pragmatics and Dialogue, Question
Answering, Semantics, Speech Recognition, Statistical Methods, Sublanguages
and Controlled Languages, Syntax, Temporal Processing, Term Extraction and
Automatic Indexing, Terminology, Text categorization, Text Complexity, Text
Data Mining, Text Segmentation, Text Simplification, Text Summarization,
Text Understanding, Text-to-Text Generation, Text-to-Speech Synthesis,
Textual Entailment, Translation Technology, Tree-Adjoining Grammars, Word
Sense Disambiguation, Application-orientated Topics related to NLP.

All accepted papers will be presented at the Student Workshop sessions
during the main conference days: 12-14 September 2011. The articles will be
issued in a special Student Session electronic proceedings and uploaded to
the ACL Anthology.

the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and
endless sea. (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
