Meeting Description:

The Student Research Workshop (SRW) is an established tradition at ACL
conferences that provides a venue for student researchers investigating topics
in computational linguistics and natural language processing to present their
work and receive feedback from a general audience as well as from a panel of
experienced researchers.

Call for Papers

1. General Invitation for Submissions
The Student Research Workshop (SRW) 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 from a general audience as well as from
panelists. The panelists are experienced researchers who will prepare in-depth
comments and questions in advance of the presentation.

We invite student researchers to submit their work to this workshop. Since the
SRW is an excellent testing ground for your ideas before an international
audience of experts, the emphasis of the workshop will be on work in progress.
Admissible research can derive from any topic area within computational
linguistics and can be applicable to either speech or text. A list of topic
areas is provided in the Call for Papers for the NAACL HLT 2010 Conference and
is available at: http://naaclhlt2010.isi.edu/cfp.html

2. Submission Requirements
The emphasis of the workshop is original and unpublished research. The papers
should describe original work in progress. Students who have decided on their
thesis direction but still have significant research left to do are particularly
encouraged to submit papers.

Since the main purpose of presenting at the workshop is to exchange ideas with
other researchers and to receive helpful feedback for further development of the
work, papers should clearly indicate directions for future research wherever
appropriate. All authors of multi-author papers MUST be students. Papers
submitted for this workshop are eligible only if they have not been presented at
any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Students who
have already presented at an ACL/EACL/NAACL Student Research Workshop may not
submit to this workshop. These students should submit their papers to the main
conference instead.

3. Submission Procedure
Submission will be electronic using the paper submission web page below:

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and should
not exceed six (6) pages, including references. Note that papers shorter than 6
pages may also be submitted in consideration for poster presentation rather than
oral presentation. We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or
Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's conference. These files are
available at:

A description of the format is available there in case you are unable to use
these style files directly. All submissions must be electronic: please use the
submission website above to submit your paper.

4. Reviewing Procedure
The review procedure of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed
by the Student Research 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 these reviews. The review process is double-blind; therefore,
please ensure that your paper shows the title, but no other information that can
identify the author(s). For example, rather than this: "We showed previously
(Smith, 2001), ...", use citations such as: "Smith (2001) previously showed ...、.

5. Schedule
The papers must be submitted no later than 11:59 EST, February 15, 2010. No
papers received after this deadline will be accepted. Acknowledgment will be
emailed soon after receipt. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors
(by email) on March 30, 2010. Detailed formatting guidelines for the preparation
of the final camera-ready copy will be provided to authors with their acceptance

Important Dates:
- Papers due: February 15, 2010
- Notification of acceptance: March 30, 2010
- Camera ready papers due: April 12, 2010
- Conference date: June 1-6, 2010

The Student Research Workshop will be held during the NAACL HLT 2010 conference.
