NAACL 2012 Student Research Workshop and Doctoral Consortium Call for
1. General Invitation for Submissions
The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at NAACL
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 from a general
audience as well as from assigned mentors. The mentors are experienced
researchers who will prepare in-depth comments and questions in
advance of the presentation. Each accepted paper will be assigned an
established researcher as a mentor, who will provide feedback on the
work to the student at the conference.
The goal of the workshop is to aid students at all stages of their
education. To that end, we invite papers in two separate categories:
1. Thesis Proposals: This category is appropriate for advanced
students who have decided on a thesis topic and wish to get feedback
on their proposal and broader ideas for their continuing work.
2. Research Papers: Papers in this category can describe completed
work or work in progress with preliminary results.
We invite the submission of both full (6 pages) and short (4 pages)
papers. The short paper format is appropriate for a small, focused
contribution, interesting application nuggets, or a negative result.
All papers will be presented at a poster session concurrent with the
main poster session.
2. Submission Requirements
Thesis Proposals may contain previously published work and must
include specific research directions. They may also be in the style of
a position paper that surveys and critiques existing literature, but
must suggest future research directions. Proposals may only have one
author, who must be a student.
Research Papers must describe original completed work or work in
progress. Since the main purpose of presenting at the workshop is to
exchange ideas with other researchers and to receive helpful feedback
for further development of the work, papers should clearly indicate
directions for future research wherever appropriate. The first author
of multi-author papers must be a student, but additional co-authors
need not be students.
Research Papers are eligible for this workshop 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 to this track as a first
author. These students should instead submit to the main conference or
to the Thesis Proposal track.
3. Submission Procedure
Submission will be electronic using the paper submission web page below:
Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed six pages (four for short papers), including
references. We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or
Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's conference. These
files are available at:
A description of the format is available there in case you are unable
to use these style files directly. All submissions must be electronic:
please use the submission website above to submit your paper.
4. Reviewing Procedure
The reviewing of papers will be double-blind, so 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 ...''.
The papers must be submitted no later than 11:59 PST, February 6,
2012. No papers received after this deadline will be accepted.
Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors (by email) on March
26, 2012. Detailed formatting guidelines for the preparation of the
final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors with their
