Note: Due to several extension requests, the deadline has been extended to
June 5th, 2013.

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, which this year has received a
record number of submissions, 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

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

    Important dates

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
