Final 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
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

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. Details on this service will
be provided in the acceptance notification.

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
     Low resource language processing
     Machine translation: methods, applications and evaluation
     Multilinguality in NLP
