NAACL HLT 2010 Student Research Workshop 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The emphasis of the workshop is original and unpublished research.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:

https://www.softconf.com/naaclhlt2010/srw/

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:

http://naaclhlt2010.isi.edu/authors.html

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. Acknowledgement
will be emailed soon after receipt. Notification of acceptance will be
sent to authors (by email) on March 15, 2010. Detailed formatting
guidelines for the preparation of the final camera-ready copy will be
provided to authors with their acceptance notice.

Important Dates:

      * Papers due: February 15, 2010
      * Notification of acceptance: March 15, 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.
