FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

Student Research Workshop at ACL-04
http://www.acl2004.org

July 21-26, 2004
Barcelona, Spain


1. General Invitation for Submissions

The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL
conferences. The workshop provides a venue for student researchers
investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language
Processing to present their work and receive feedback. Participants
will have the opportunity to receive feedback both from the general
audience and from selected panelists -- experienced researchers who
prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the
presentation. One paper will be selected for the ACL-04 Student
Research Workshop Best Paper Award.

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 Original and unpublished research is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

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

The main conference also features tutorials, workshops, and
demos. More information on these can be found at the main ACL-04 page,
http://www.acl2004.org

2. Submission Requirements

Papers should describe original work, still in progress. Submission
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 consider
submitting instead to the main conference. Papers should clearly
indicate directions for future research wherever appropriate. The
papers may have more than one author; however, all authors MUST be
students. Please note: 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 under
identification information (see submission guidelines below). Students
who have already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session may
not present at a student session again, but are encouraged to submit
to the main conference instead.

3. Submission Procedure

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 are now available
from the web pages of ACL-04 and the student research workshop. A
description of the format is also available in case you are unable to
use these style files directly.

Submission must be electronic. The following formats are acceptable:
PostScript (.ps), Rich Text Format ACL style (.rtf), Microsoft Word
ACL style (.doc) and PDF (.pdf). The electronic submissions should be
sent in an attachment to the following e-mail address:
acl04-studentlist.cs.brown.edu In the body of the e-mail, please
include the following identification information:

 * Title
 * Author(s) name(s), affiliation, and e-mail addresses
 * Topic Area: (one or two general topic areas, see list above)
 * Keywords: Up to 5 keywords specifying the subject area
 * Under Consideration for Other Conferences: (if yes, please specify)
 * Abstract: short summary (up to 5 lines)

In addition, we ask you to submit a statement from your advisor
indicating that you (and all other authors) are a student, and have
not presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session. You can email
this statement to acl04-studentlist.cs.brown.edu or fax it to
+61-8-6488-1154.

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 based on the results of the review.

Note that reviewing of papers will be blind; therefore, please make
sure your paper shows the title, but no author information. You
should likewise not have any self-identifying references anywhere in
the paper submitted for review. For example, rather than this: ''We
showed previously (Smith, 2001), ...'', use citations such as: ''Smith
(2001) previously showed ...''.

5. Schedule

Submissions must be received by March 8th, 2004. Late submissions will
be automatically disqualified. Acknowledgment will be e-mailed soon
after receipt. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors (by
e-mail) on April 26th, 2004. Detailed formatting guidelines for the
preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors
with their acceptance notice.

Important Dates:
Paper submissions deadline: March 8th, 2004
Notification of acceptance: April 26th, 2004
Camera ready papers due: May 25th, 2004
