ACL 2008 Student Research Workshop

June 15-20, 2008, Columbus Ohio



Second Call for Papers

------------------------------------------------------



1. General Invitation for Submissions



The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL

conferences. The workshop provides a venue for student researchers

investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language

Processing to present their work and receive feedback. Participants

will have the opportunity to receive feedback from a general audience

as well as from panelists; the panelists are experienced researchers

who will prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the

presentation.



We would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to

the workshop. Since this workshop is an excellent opportunity to ask

for suggestions, to receive useful feedback and to run your ideas by

an international audience of researchers, the emphasis of the workshop

will be on work in progress. The research being presented can come

from any topic area within computational linguistics including, but

not limited to, the following topic areas:



- pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax and the lexicon

- phonetics, phonology and morphology

- linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language

- information retrieval, information extraction, question answering

- 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

- multi-modal language processing, multimedia systems

- message and narrative understanding systems



2. Submission Requirements



The emphasis of the workshop is on original and unpublished

research. The papers should describe original work in

progress. Students who have settled on their thesis direction but

still have significant research left to do are particularly encouraged

to submit their papers.



Since the main purpose of presenting at the workshop is to exchange

ideas with other researchers and to receive helpful feedback for

further development of the work, papers should clearly indicate

directions for future research wherever appropriate. All authors of

multi-author papers must be students. Papers submitted for this

workshop are eligible only if they have not been presented at any

other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Students

who have already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL Student Research

Workshop may not submit to this workshop. They should submit their

papers to the main conference instead. It must be indicated if a paper

has been submitted to another conference or workshop.



3. Submission Procedure



Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and

should not exceed six (6) pages, including references. We strongly

recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style

files tailored for this year's conference. These files will be

available soon from the student workshop pages of the conference

site. A description of the format will also be available in case you

are unable to use these style files directly. All the submissions must

be electronic. Please use the submission page to submit your paper.



4. Reviewing Procedure



Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed

by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs, with the assistance of a team of

reviewers. Each submission will be matched with a mixed panel of

student and senior researchers for review. The final acceptance

decision will be based on the results of the review. Note that

reviewing of papers will be double-blind; therefore, please make sure

your paper shows the title, but no author information. You should

likewise not have any self identifying references anywhere in the

paper submitted for review. For example, rather than this: ''We showed

previously (Smith, 2001), ...'', use citations such as: ''Smith (2001)

previously showed ...''.



5. Schedule



The papers must be submitted no later than midnight, January 10th,

2008 . No papers received after January 10th, 2008 will be

accepted. Acknowledgment will be emailed soon after

receipt. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors (by email)

on February 28th, 2008. Detailed formatting guidelines for the

preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors

with their acceptance notice.



Important Dates:



Paper submission deadline: January 10, 2008

Notification of acceptance: February 28, 2008

Camera-ready paper submission deadline: April 14, 2008

Conference date: June 15-20, 2008

(The workshop will be held during the main conference)
