1. General Invitation for Submissions
The Student Session is an established tradition at ACL conferences. This year it will take the form of a Student Workshop. 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. We would like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the workshop. 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. For the Student Workshop, original, and unpublished research is invited on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these topic areas:
The conference will also feature
tutorials, workshops, and demos. See the Main ACL 2003 page for information.
Papers should describe original
work in progress. 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. 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. In
addition, a student who has already presented at an
ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be allowed to
present again at the student session at any of these
conferences, but instead, are encouraged to submit to the
Submissions for this year's
session will take place online. A submission form will soon be available from the
student session web pages. If you are unable to use the on-line form
for paper submission or experience problems using it,
please, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors should submit their papers
for review in the two-column format of the ACL proceedings
and should not exceed 6 pages. We strongly recommend the use
of ACL latex style or Microsoft Word Style files available
from the main session's web pages. These are also available from the
student workshop web pages.
1. Identification page
2. Paper (includes no self-identifying references)
Electronic submissions as well as hard copy submissions are acceptable. If you are submitting your paper electronically, only the following formats will be acceptable:
Specific instructions for electronic submissions are now available.
Electronic submissions are
strongly preferred, and will be required for inclusion in
the final proceedings. Contact the co-chairs if you
absolutely need to submit a hardcopy at this stage.
Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed by Student Workshop Co-Chairs, each of whom will have 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. (See Submission
details). 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)..."
Submissions must be received by
March 15, 2003. Late submissions 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 April 26, 2003. Detailed formatting guidelines for
the preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be
provided to authors with their acceptance notice.
