 Call for Papers

 Student Research Workshop
 during EACL-03

 11th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
 Computational Linguistics, Budapest, Hungary April 12-17 2003

 This information can also be found at
 http://www.coli.uni-sb.de/conf/eacl03-student/

 submission deadline: November 15th 2002

Note: The exact dates of the Workshop have not been firmly established
 yet. It is expected that the session will be part of the main
 conference, April 15-17 2003

1. General Invitation for Submissions

The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at EACL
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 panellists,
experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in
advance of the presentation.

In order to widen participation, we hope to make funding and very
reasonably priced accommodation available for attending the
conference. More details will be posted on the Student Research
Workshop website.

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unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational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 modelling
 * 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

Papers reporting research on less-studied European and
African/Mediterranean languages are particularly encouraged.

The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops and
research notes. Further information on these will be made available on
the Main Conference website, http://www.conferences.hu/eacl03

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. Please note that a letter from
your supervisor will be required to confirm that you meet these
criteria.

3. Submission Procedure

Submissions should follow the two-column format of EACL/ACL
proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including
references. We strongly recommend the use of EACL latex style files or
Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's conference. Full
details on formatting and submission (including the supervisor's
letter mentioned in 2 above) will soon be available from the web pages
of the workshop.

Electronic submissions are strongly preferred. Papers should be sent
by email in PostScript and PDF format to the following address:
studentseacl.org

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. 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 Friday November 15th, 2002. Late
submissions (those arriving on or after November 16th, 2002) will be
automatically disqualified. The student workshop committee is not
responsible for postal delays or other mailing problems. For
electronic submissions, all time zones will be taken into account).
Acknowledgement will be emailed soon after receipt. Notification of
acceptance will be sent to authors (by email) on January 15th, 2003.
Detailed formatting guidelines for the preparation of the final
camera-ready copy will be provided to authors with their acceptance
notice.
