yet.  Tentatively, the Workshop may take place anytime between 6th and

1. General Invitation for Submissions

The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL
conferences. The main purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum
for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to
Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. We would
like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the
workshop. 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.  For the Student
Workshop, original, and unpublished research is invited on all aspects
of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these
topic areas:

  - pragmatics
  - discourse
  - semantics
  - syntax and the lexicon
  - phonetics
  - phonology and morphology
  - interpreting and generating spoken and written language
  - linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language
  - language-oriented information retrieval and information extraction
  - corpus-based language modeling
  - machine translation and translation aids
  - natural language interfaces and dialogue systems
  - approaches to coordinating the linguistic with other modalities in
    multi-media systems
  - message and narrative understanding systems

The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops, and demos.
See the Main ACL/EACL 2001 page for information:

2. Submission Requirements

Papers should describe original work in progress. 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. 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 published
proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must
indicate this immediately after the title material on the first page.

3. Submission Procedure

Paper Registration

Registration of your submission is required. This can be done by
filling out a form available at the web site of the workshop:

After you fill out and submit this form, a unique ID number will be
generated and sent to you in an e-mail shortly after the paper
registration. You will then be able to use this ID number instead of
your name on the title page of the paper and in any subsequent
correspondence with the workshop co-chairs.

If you are unable to use the on-line form for paper registration or
experience problems using it, please, send email to
acl01-student at

Submission format

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 will soon be
available from the web site:

These style files allow for a graceful transition to the style
required for publication.  A description of the format will also be
available in case you are unable to use these style files directly.

4. Reviewing Procedure

Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed
