Final Call for Papers

*ACL 2013 Student Research Workshop*

5-7 August, 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria

** Submission deadline: Sunday, March 3, 2013 ** http://sites.google.com/site/aclsrw2013/

*General Invitation for Submissions* The ACL Student Research Workshop provides a venue for student researchers investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing to present their research, to meet potential advisors, and to receive feedback from the international research community. 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 who are preparing their graduate thesis proposal. Towards this goal, we invite papers in two separate categories.

1. Thesis/Research Proposals: This category is appropriate for experienced students who wish to get feedback on their proposal and broader ideas for the field in order to strengthen their final research.

2. Research Papers: Most appropriate for students who are new to academic conferences. Papers in this category can describe completed work or work in progress with preliminary results.

Subject to the availability of established researcher volunteers, each accepted paper will be assigned a mentor, who will provide feedback on the work to the student at the conference. Details on this service will be provided in the acceptance notification.

*Topics* Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following areas (in alphabetical order):

Cognitive modeling of language processing and psycholinguistics

Dialogue and interactive systems

Discourse, coreference and pragmatics
