Final Call for Papers

ACL 2013 Student Research Workshop

5-7 August, 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria

** Submission deadline: Sunday, March 3, 2013 **

The ACL Student Research Workshop provides a venue for student 
researchers investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and 
Natural Language Processing to present their research, to meet potential 
advisors, and to receive feedback from the international research community.
The workshop's goal is to aid students at multiple stages of their 
education: from those in the final stages of undergraduate training to 
those who are preparing their graduate thesis proposal. Towards this 
goal, we invite papers in two separate categories.

1. Thesis/Research Proposals: This category is appropriate for 
experienced students who wish to get feedback on their proposal and 
broader ideas for the field in order to strengthen their final research.

2. Research Papers: Most appropriate for students who are new to 
academic conferences. Papers in this category can describe completed 
work or work in progress with preliminary results.

Subject to the availability of established researcher volunteers, each 
accepted paper will be assigned a mentor, who will provide feedback on 
the work to the student at the conference. Details on this service will 
be provided in the acceptance notification.

Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the 
following areas (in alphabetical order):

     Cognitive modeling of language processing and psycholinguistics
     Dialogue and interactive systems
     Discourse, coreference and pragmatics
     Evaluation methods
     Information retrieval
     Language resources
     Lexical semantics and ontologies
     Low resource language processing
     Machine translation: methods, applications and evaluation
     Multilinguality in NLP
     NLP applications
