Further to the first two successful and highly competitive Student
Research Workshops associated with the conference 'Recent Advances in
Natural Language Processing' (RANLP, in 2009 and 2011), we are pleased
to announce the third edition of the workshop which will be held
during the main RANLP 2013 conference days on 9-11 September 2013. For
the second time the conference and the workshop will take place in
Hissar, Bulgaria, which is a location worth to be visited.

The International Conference RANLP 2013 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 (NLP) and computational
linguistics, including but not limited to the following topic areas:

    phonetics, phonology, and morphology; syntax, semantics,
discourse, pragmatics, dialogue, and lexicon; mathematical and
statistical models and complexity; language resources and corpora;
electronic dictionaries, terminologies and ontologies; POS tagging;
parsing; semantic role labelling; word-sense disambiguation; textual
entailment; anaphora resolution; generation; speech recognition;
text-to-speech synthesis; multilingual NLP; machine translation,
translation memory systems and computer-aided translation tools, text
simplification and readability estimation; knowledge acquisition;
information retrieval; text categorisation; information extraction;
text summarisation; term extraction; question answering; opinion
mining; dialogue systems; computer-aided language learning; NLP for
biomedical texts; NLP for the Semantic web; and theoretical and
application-orientated papers related to NLP.

Papers at the borderline between two sciences (such as Translation
Studies, Linguistics and Psycholinguistics), but bearing contributions
to NLP will be also accepted for review.

All accepted papers will be presented at the Student Workshop sessions
during the main conference days: 9-11 September 2013. The articles
will be issued in a special Student Session  proceedings and uploaded
to the ACL Anthology.

All papers must be submitted in .pdf format through the conference
management system and must be 4-6 pages long (excluding references). A
link to the conference management system will be available on the
workshop website. For format requirements please refer to the main
RANLP website, Submission Guidelines Section. Each submission will be
reviewed by at least 2 reviewers from the Programme Committee, who
will feature experienced researchers from all areas of NLP. The final
decisions will be made based on these reviews. The submissions will
have to specify the student's level (Bachelor-, Master-, or PhD). All
authors of the articles must be students. Submission with non-student
authors will not be considered for review.

Authors may submit the same paper at several conferences. In this case
they must notify the organisers by filling in the corresponding
information in the submission form.
