EACL-SRW 2012 : EACL 2012 Student Research Workshop
Call For Papers
EACL 2012 Student Research Workshop
Thirteenth Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics - Student Research Workshop
April 25-27, 2012
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
** Submission deadline: November 18, 2011 **
1. General Invitation for Submissions
EACL 2012 will continue the tradition of providing a forum for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. Participants will have the opportunity to get feedback both from a wide audience in general and from selected panelists -- experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation.
The European Association of Computational Linguistics would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, including, but not limited to:
- pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax and the lexicon
- phonetics, phonology and morphology
- linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language
- information retrieval, information extraction, question answering
- generation, summarization and paraphrasing
- speech recognition, speech synthesis
- corpus-based language modeling
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation, translation aids
- spoken and written natural language interfaces, dialogue systems
- language resources and tools
- multi-modal language processing, multimedia systems
- message and narrative understanding systems
- other Natural Language Processing applications
The main conference will also feature tutorials and workshops. Further information on these is available at the main conference website: http://www.eacl2012.org
2. Submission Requirements
Seeing that the main mission of the student workshop is to provide the participants with a wide audience and useful feedback, the emphasis of the workshop will be on work in progress. It will therefore normally be open to students who have settled on their thesis direction but who still have significant research left to do; those students in the final stages of their thesis are encouraged to submit to the main conference. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research where appropriate. The papers can have more than one author, however all authors must be students.
A paper accepted for presentation at the Student Workshop cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Double submissions to the EACL main conference and the Student Research Workshop are not allowed. A student can only submit one paper to the Student Workshop. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate this on the submission page. Students who have previously presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be eligible to present again at the student session of any of these conferences. These students are instead encouraged to submit to the main conference.
3. Submission Format
All submissions must be submitted electronically as PDF and must follow the two-column format of EACL proceedings. Authors are strongly recommended to use the style files available on the conference web site. Papers may consist of up to nine (9) pages of content and any number of additional pages containing references only.
As reviewing will be double-blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Authors should not use anonymous citations and should not include any acknowledgments. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.
The deadline for submission is 11:59pm Samoa Time (UTC/GMT -11 hours) on November 18, 2011. Additional instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the website of the Student Research Workshop at http://eacl2012.org/student-research-workshop/
4. Reviewing Procedure
The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by the Student Workshop Chairs and a team of reviewers. Each submission will be matched with a mixed panel of student and senior researchers for review, and will receive three independent reviews. The final acceptance decision will be based on the results of the review.
