Further to the first two successful and highly competitive Student
Research Workshops associated with the conference 'Recent Advances in
Natural Language Processing' (RANLP, in 2009 and 2011), we are pleased
to announce the third edition of the workshop which will be held during
the main RANLP 2013 conference days on 9-11 September 2013. For the
second time the conference and the workshop will take place in Hissar,
Bulgaria, which is a location worth to be visited.

The International Conference RANLP 2013 would like to invite students at
all levels (Bachelor-, Master-, and PhD-students) to present their
ongoing work at the Student Research Workshop. The aim of this workshop
is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between young researchers by
providing an excellent opportunity to present and discuss their work in
progress or completed projects to an international research audience and
receive feedback from senior researchers.

The research being presented can come from any topic area within Natural
Language Processing (NLP) and computational linguistics, including but
not limited to the following *topic areas*:

    phonetics, phonology, and morphology; syntax, semantics, discourse,
    pragmatics, dialogue, and lexicon; mathematical and statistical
    models and complexity; language resources and corpora; electronic
    dictionaries, terminologies and ontologies; POS tagging; parsing;
    semantic role labelling; word-sense disambiguation; textual
    entailment; anaphora resolution; generation; speech recognition;
    text-to-speech synthesis; multilingual NLP; machine translation,
    translation memory systems and computer-aided translation tools,
    text simplification and readability estimation; knowledge
    acquisition; information retrieval; text categorisation; information
    extraction; text summarisation; term extraction; question answering;
    opinion mining; dialogue systems; computer-aided language learning;
    NLP for biomedical texts; NLP for the Semantic web; and theoretical
    and application-orientated papers related to NLP.

Papers at the borderline between two sciences (such as Translation
Studies, Linguistics and Psycholinguistics), but bearing contributions
to NLP will be also accepted for review.

All accepted papers will be presented at the Student Workshop sessions
during the main conference days: 9-11 September 2013. The articles will
be issued in a special Student Session proceedings and uploaded to the
ACL Anthology.

link to the conference management system will be available on the
workshop website. For format requirements please refer to the main RANLP
website, Submission Guidelines Section. Each submission will be reviewed
by 3 reviewers from the Programme Committee, who will feature
experienced researchers from all areas of NLP. The final decisions will
be made based on these reviews. The submissions will have to specify the
student's level (Bachelor-, Master-, or PhD). All authors of the
articles must be students. Submission with non-student authors will not
be considered for review.
