EACL 2012 Student Research Workshop

Thirteenth Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics - Student Research Workshop
Avignon, France
April 25-27, 2012

** 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 Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of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:

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.  Papers have to be submitted before the deadline
through the START conference portal for the workshop, which is available
at the following URL:

4. Reviewing Procedure

The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by
the Student Workshop Co-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.

5. Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: November 18, 2011
Notification of acceptance: January 27, 2012
