 Call for Papers

 Student Research Workshop
 at ACL-02

 	 	 http://www.acl02.org

 July 6-11, 2002 
 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

 submission deadline: February 22th, 2002	

 Note: The exact dates of the Workshop have not been firmly
 established yet. Tentatively, the Workshop may take place
 anytime between July 6 - 11, 2002


 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.
 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.

 We would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to
 the workshop. As the main mission of the workshop is to provide
 feedback, the emphasis will be on work in progress. Original and
 unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational
 linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas:

 pragmatics
 discourse
 semantics
 syntax 
 lexicon
 phonetics and phonology
 morphology
 linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language
 information retrieval
	 information extraction
 question answering
 summarization
 generation
 speech recognition and synthesis
 corpus-based language modeling
 multi-lingual processing
 machine translation and translation aids
 spoken and written natural language interfaces, dialogue systems
 language in multi-modal systems
 message and narrative understanding systems

 The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops, and
 demos. More information on these can be found at the main
 ACL-02 page: http://www.acl02.org 


 2. Submission Requirements

 Papers should describe original work, either in progress or
 completed. It will therefore normally be open only 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 should be submitting instead to the main
 conference. 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. A student who has already presented
 at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be allowed to
 present again at the student session of any of these conferences,
 but encouraged to submit instead to the main conference.


 3. Submission Procedure

 Paper Registration

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

 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
 acl02-studentcoli.uni-sb.de 


 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 student workshop pages of the 
 conference 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.

 Separate items to be submitted

 4. Reviewing Procedure

 Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed
 by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs, with the assistance of a team
 of reviewers. Each submission will be matched with a mixed panel
 of student and senior researchers for review. The final acceptance 
 decision will be made based on the results of the review.

 Note that reviewing of papers will be blind; therefore, please, make
 sure you do not put the author(s) name(s) on the title page. (See
 paper submission requirements for details). You should not have any
 self-identifying references anywhere in the paper submitted for
 review. For example, you can't have a reference like this "We showed
 previously (Smith, 1991), ..." Instead, use citations such as "Smith
 previously showed (Smith, 1991)..."


 5. Schedule

 Submissions must be received by February 22nd, 2002. Late
 submissions (those arriving on or after February 23rd, 2002) will
