ACL 2013 Student Research Workshop

5-7 August, 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria

** Submission deadline: Sunday, March 10, 2013 **

General Invitation for Submissions

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
 *   NLP applications
 *   NLP and creativity
 *   NLP for the languages of Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans
 *   NLP for the Web and social media
