Mentoring service -- http://acl2010.org/mentoring.htm
ACL is providing a mentoring (coaching) service for authors from regions of the world where English is less emphasized as a language of scientific exchange. Many authors from these regions, although able to read the scientific literature in English, have little or no experience in writing papers in English for conferences such as the ACL meetings. The service will be arranged as follows. A set of potential mentors will be identified by Mentoring Service Chairs Björn Gambäck (SICS, Sweden and NTNU, Norway) and Diana McCarthy (Lexical Computing Ltd., UK), who will organize this service for ACL 2010. If you would like to take advantage of the service for a submission to the main conference, to the Student Research Workshop, to the system demonstration session, or to one of the workshops, please upload your paper in PDF format using the paper submission software for the mentoring service available at:
The deadline for the mentoring service is SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE RESPECTIVE SUBMISSION DEADLINE. An appropriate mentor will be assigned to your paper and the mentor will get back to you no later than two weeks before the submission deadline.
Please note that this service is for the benefit of the authors as described above. It is not a general mentoring service for authors to improve the technical content of their papers.
