Call For Papers


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. Separately, the committee will do its best to assign pre-submission mentors to students who wish to get feedback before the paper deadline. This service will be available on a first come, first served basis and does not guarantee acceptance into the workshop. Students who wish to take advantage of this opportunity should let the co-chairs know via email (to: acl-srw-2013 at no later than Saturday, December 29, 2012 and should submit a paper draft no later than Friday, January 18, 2013.


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
