NAACL-HLT 2015 Student Research Workshop (SRW)

Call for Papers

Workshop website: https://sites.google.com/site/naaclsrw2015/home/

The SRW workshop will be held in conjunction with NAACL HLT 2015 in Denver, Colorado.

General Invitation for Submission

The Student Research Workshop provides a venue for student researchers to present their work in computational

linguistics and natural language processing. Students receive feedback from the general conference audience as well

as from mentors specifically assigned according to the topic of their work.

We invite papers in three different categories:

1. Thesis Proposals. This category is appropriate for advanced students who have decided on a thesis topic and wish

to get feedback on their proposal and broader ideas for their continuing work.

2. Research Papers. Papers in this category can describe completed work, or work in progress with preliminary

results. For these papers, the first author must be a current graduate student.

3. Special undergraduate track. In order to encourage undergraduate research, we are offering a special track for

research papers where the first author is an undergraduate student.

Topics of interest for the SRW are the same as NAACL main conference.

Benefits of participation

* All accepted papers will be presented in the main conference poster session giving students an opportunity to

interact with and present their work to a large and diverse audience, including top researchers in the field.

* All accepted papers (thesis, research, undergraduate) will be published in the NAACL 2015 SRW Proceedings.

* Each participant is also assigned a mentor - an experienced researcher - who can provide valuable advice.

* Additional feedback is being planned for thesis proposals, as well as oral presentations.


Grants from the NSF and corporate sponsors will be available to offset some portion of the students' conference

registration, travel and accommodation expenses. Further details will be posted soon.

Important Dates

All deadlines are calculated at 11:59 pm (PST/GMT -8 hours)

* Papers must be submitted by February 25, 2015.

* Acceptance notification deadline: March 20, 2015.

* Camera-ready copy due: March 30, 2015.

* NAACL main conference dates: May 31 - June 5, 2015.

Please check the website for updated timelines as further information becomes available.

Submission Procedure

- Please use the START website for submissions: https://www.softconf.com/naacl2015/srw/

- The format is the same as for the general conference.

The reviewing procedure and multiple submissions policy for the SRW are the same as those for the general

conference. They are repeated here for ease of reference.

Submission Guidelines

Both thesis proposals and research papers have a maximum limit of 6 pages for content and can include any number of

additional pages for references. Papers should follow these specifications:

Thesis Proposals may contain previously published work and must include specific research directions. They may also

be in the style of a paper that surveys and critiques existing literature and suggests future research directions.

Proposals may only have one author, who must be a graduate student. In addition, the authors of thesis proposals

should provide a CV. The CV should be at most 2 pages long and include educational background, publications, and

projected graduation date.

Research Papers (graduate and undergraduate) must describe original completed work or work in progress. 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. The first author of multi-author papers must be a student, but additional co-authors need not

be students. Research Papers are eligible for this workshop 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 track as a first author. These students should instead submit to

the main conference or to the Thesis Proposal track. Note that every student is only allowed to submit one first-

author paper. You may author multiple papers but since we mentor students and give feedback, we request you to only

submit one paper.

Reviewing Procedure

As the reviewing will be blind, the paper must not include the authors’ names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-

references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) …” must be avoided.

Instead, use citations such as “Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) …” Papers that do not conform to these

requirements will be rejected without review. In addition, please do not post your submissions on the web until

after the review process is complete (in special cases this is permitted: see the multiple submission policy


We will reject without review any papers that do not follow the official style guidelines, anonymity conditions and

page limits.

Multiple Submission Policy

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate this at submission time.

Authors of papers accepted for presentation at NAACL HLT SRW 2015 must notify the program chairs by the camera-

ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference

to appear in the proceedings. We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly

in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere.

Preprint servers such as arXiv.org and ACL-related workshops that do not have published proceedings in the ACL

Anthology are not considered archival for purposes of submission. Authors must state in the online submission form

the name of the workshop or preprint server and title of the non-archival version. The submitted version should be

suitably anonymized and not contain references to the prior non-archival version. Reviewers will be told: “The

author(s) have notified us that there exists a non-archival previous version of this paper with significantly

overlapping text. We have approved submission under these circumstances, but to preserve the spirit of blind

review, the current submission does not reference the non-archival version.” Reviewers are free to do what they

like with this information.
