ACL 2018 Student Research Workshop First Call for Papers

Student Research Workshop Collocated with  ACL 2018 Melbourne, Australia
Main Conference: July 16, 2018 – July 20, 2018

***Paper Submission Deadline: April 8, 2018 **** [1]

General Rule for Submission

The ACL 2018 Student Research Workshop (SRW) provides a forum for student 
researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational 
Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. The workshop provides an excellent 
opportunity for student participants to present their work and receive valuable 
feedback from the international research community as well as from selected 
panelists - experienced researchers, specifically assigned according to the 
topic of their work, who will prepare in-depth comments and questions in 
advance of the presentation. The workshop's goal is to aid students at multiple 
stages of their education: from those in the final stages of undergraduate 
training to those active with graduate thesis research. The SRW invites two 
types of submissions:

  *   Research Papers: completed work or work-in-progress along with 
preliminary results. We encourage submissions from Ph.D. students, as well as 
Masters or advanced undergraduate students.

  *   Research Proposals: for advanced Masters and Ph.D. students who have 
decided on a thesis topic and are interested in feedback about their proposal 
and ideas about future directions for their work.

This year we provide two mentoring programs:

  *   Pre-submission Mentoring: the goal is to improve presentation of the 
student's work, not to critique the work itself. Mentors will provide feedback 
in the format of guidelines and suggestions to improve the overall writing.

  *   Mentoring for Accepted Papers: mentors will be responsible for providing 
feedback to students and preparing in-depth comments and questions prior to the 
workshop presentation.
