Student Research Workshop at EACL-2006
http://eacl.coli.uni-saarland.de/studentws06/

Trento, Italy
April 5-7, 2006

- Submission Deadline: November 8, 2006-

1. General Invitation for Submissions

EACL-2006 will continue the tradition of providing 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.

The European Association of Computational Linguistics would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas:

- phonetics, phonology and morphology;
- word segmentation, tagging and chunking;
- syntax, semantics and grammars;
- pragmatics, discourse and dialogue;
- the lexicon and ontologies;
- parsing and grammatical formalisms;
- generation, text planning and summarization;
- language modeling, spoken language recognition and understanding;
- mathematical models of language;
- information retrieval, text categorisation, question answering, and information extraction;
- paraphrasing and textual entailment;
- machine learning for natural language;
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
- multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
- evaluation methodology.

The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops and research notes. Further information on these is available at the main conference website, http://eacl06.itc.it/

2. Submission Requirements

Seeing that the main mission of the student workshop is to provide the participants with a wide audience and useful feedback, the emphasis of the workshop will be on work in progress. It will therefore normally be open 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 are encouraged to submit to the main conference. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future research where 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 proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate this immediately after the title material on the first page. Students who have previously presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be eligible to present again at the student session of any of these conferences. These students are instead encouraged to submit to the main conference.

3. Submission Procedure

Submissions should follow the two-column formal of EACL/ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's conference. They will be available at http://eacl06.itc.it/submission.htm. A description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use the style files directly. Papers must conform to the official EACL 2006 style guidelines, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font size restrictions. Submissions should be in PDF format and must include all fonts, so that the paper will print (not just view) anywhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., ''We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...'', should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as ''Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...''. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Submission will be electronic using the paper submission software to be made available at http://eacl06.itc.it/submission.htm. The papers must be submitted no later than 11:59pm (23:59) GMT November 8, 2005.

Further details on the submissions procedure may be found at the student session homepage.
(http://eacl.coli.uni-saarland.de/studentws06/).

4. Reviewing Procedure

The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs and 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.

5. Student Sponsorships

The EACL has a limited number of student sponsorships available to student participants of the EACL 2006 main conference, the EACL 2006 poster/demo session and/or the EACL 2006 student session.

Priority is given to students from Eastern Europe and more generally, to students from countries with hard currency problems (within the geographical area covered by EACL).

A request for student sponsorship for EACL 2006 should include the following information:

- Name, email address, affiliation and status (PhD year etc.) of the candidate
- Source and amount of yearly income
- Letter of motivation
- Proof of student status
- Copy of acceptance letter from programme chair / student workshop chair or poster/demo chair
- Letter of recommendation from supervisor
- Overview of the estimated costs

Requests for student sponsorships can be directed to the EACL at secretaryeacl.org
