Message 2: ACL-93 CALL FOR PAPERS

From: Don Walker <walkerbellcore.com>
Subject: ACL-93 CALL FOR PAPERS

			ACL-93 CALL FOR PAPERS

31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

			 22-26 June 1993
			Ohio State University
			 Columbus, Ohio, USA

TOPICS OF INTEREST: Papers are invited on substantial, original,
and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics,
including, but not limited to, pragmatics, discourse, semantics,
syntax, and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology, and morphology;
interpreting and generating spoken and written language; linguistic,
mathematical, and psychological models of language; language-oriented
information retrieval; corpus-based language modelling; machine
translation and translation aids; natural language interfaces and
dialogue systems; message and narrative understanding systems; and
theoretical and applications papers of every kind.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe unique work; they should
emphasize completed work rather than intended work; and they should
indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.
A paper accepted for presentation at the ACL Meeting cannot be
presented at another conference. Self-references which reveal the
authors' identity (e.g., ``We previously showed [Smith, 1991] . . .'')
should be avoided as far as possible, since reviewing will be
``blind''.

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of
preliminary versions of their papers, not to exceed 3200 words
(exclusive of references). To facilitate blind reviewing, two title
pages are required. The first (one copy only, unattached) should
include the title, the name(s) of the author(s), complete addresses,
a short (5 line) summary, and a specification of the topic area.
The second (4 copies, heading the copies of the paper) should omit
author names and addresses. Submissions that do not conform to this
format will not be reviewed. As well, authors are strongly urged
to email the title page (in directly readable ASCII form, with
author information). Send to:

	Lenhart Schubert ACL-93
	University of Rochester
	Department of Computer Science
	Rochester, NY 14627, USA
	fax: +1-716-461-2018
	acl93cs.rochester.edu

SCHEDULE: Preliminary papers are due by 6 January 1993. Authors
will be notified of acceptance by 15 March 1993. Camera-ready
copies of final papers prepared in a double-column format, preferably
using a laser printer, must be received by 1 May 1993, along with
a signed copyright release statement.

STUDENT SESSIONS: Following the ACL-91/92 successes, there will again
be special Student Sessions organized by a committee of ACL graduate
student members. ACL student members are invited to submit short
papers describing innovative work in progress in any of the topics
listed above. The papers will be reviewed by a committee of students
and faculty members for presentation in workshop-style sessions. There
is a separate call for papers; to get one or for other information
contact Linda Suri or Sandra Carberry, University of Delaware, Computer
& Information Science, 103 Smith Hall, Newark, DE 19716, USA;
+1-302-831-2712; +1-302-831-8458 fax; suricis.udel.edu or

coordinated by Philip Cohen, SRI International, Artificial Intelligence
Center, 333 Ravenswood Avenue, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA; +1-415-859-4840;

Message 3: ACL-93 STUDENT SESSIONS -- CALL FOR PAPERS

Date: Tue, 20 Oct 92 17:14:10 -0ACL-93 STUDENT SESSIONS -- CALL FOR PAPERS
From: Don Walker <walkerbellcore.com>
Subject: ACL-93 STUDENT SESSIONS -- CALL FOR PAPERS

 ACL-93 CALL FOR STUDENT PAPERS

 Student Sessions
 at the
31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

 22 - 26 June, 1993
 Ohio State University
 Columbus, Ohio, USA

PURPOSE: The goal of these sessions is to provide a forum for student
members to present their work in progress and receive feedback from
other members of the computational linguistics community, particularly
senior researchers. The sessions will be workshop-style, consisting of
short paper presentations and discussion. The papers will be published
in a special section of the conference proceedings. Note that having
student sessions for the presentation of ongoing work in NO way
influences the treatment of student-written papers submitted to the
main conference. Rather, the student sessions will provide an entirely
separate track emphasizing students' work in progress rather than
completed work.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe original, unpublished work in
progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise. Topics of
interest are the same as for the main conference. Authors must have
ACL Student Membership (or be students even though paying the regular
member rate because they earn a regular income) at the time of the
conference. For membership information contact Don Walker at the
address below. Because of differences in focus (complete results vs.
work in progress) and submission format, papers submitted to the main
conference can not be considered for the student sessions. Students
may, of course, submit DIFFERENT papers to BOTH the main conference and
the student sessions, and papers on different aspects of a particular
problem or project are acceptable. Self-references which reveal the
authors' identity should be avoided as much as possible (e.g., write
``[Smith, 1991] showed that ...'' instead of ``We previously showed
[Smith, 1991] ...''), since reviewing will be ``blind''.

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Submitted papers are limited to 3 pages
(including a mandatory abstract, references, figures, and appendices)
and must be laid out in the conventional double-column conference
format, with typeface no smaller than 10 pt. For LaTeX users, the
``aaai'', ``kr89'', and ``ijcai91'' styles are recommended. Each page
must have a 1" margin on all sides. To accommodate a blind-review
process, the author and institution information must not be included in
the paper submissions. Rather, a SEPARATE cover page must be supplied,
including the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), postal
addresses, email addresses (if available), phone numbers, and a copy of
the abstract.

MEDIUM OF SUBMISSION: Authors have the option of submitting their
papers by hardcopy only, by email only, or by both hardcopy and email.
Email submissions are encouraged.

 EMAIL ONLY SUBMISSION: LaTeX, Postscript, or ASCII formats are
 acceptable. For portability, email submissions should use a
 standard font, such as computer modern, and 8.5"x11" or A4 size
 pages. Authors submitting a LaTeX source file should include any
 style files used by the source file. NOTE: the cover page must be
 mailed in a separate email message from the paper. Email
 submissions should be sent to:

	acl93-student-submitcis.udel.edu

 HARDCOPY ONLY SUBMISSION: Four copies of the paper and one copy of
 the cover page should be sent to:

	Linda Suri (ACL Student Sessions)
	Department of Computer and Information Sciences
	103 Smith Hall
	University of Delaware
	Newark, DE 19716, USA

 HARDCOPY AND EMAIL SUBMISSION: the guidelines for EMAIL ONLY
 SUBMISSION should be followed, and one copy of the paper and one
 copy of the cover page should be sent to Suri at the address
 above.

SCHEDULE: Submissions in either format must be RECEIVED by 1 FEBRUARY
1993. Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by 5 FEBRUARY 1993.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by 15 MARCH 1993. Camera-ready
copies of final papers must be received by 1 MAY 1993.

STUDENT SESSIONS INFORMATION: If you have questions about the student
sessions, contact Linda Suri or Sandra Carberry at the postal address
above, by phone at +1-302 831-2712, by fax at +1-302 831-8458, or by
