Second Call for Papers

RANLP 2017 Student Workshop


Further to the previous successful and highly competitive Student Research

Workshops associated with the conference 'Recent Advances in Natural Language

Processing' (RANLP, in 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015), we are pleased to announce

the fifth edition of the workshop which will be held during the main RANLP 2017

conference days on 4-6 September 2017. For the first time the conference and the

workshop will take place at the Black Sea city of Varna, Bulgaria.

The International Conference RANLP 2017 would like to invite students at all

levels (Bachelor-, Master-, and PhD-students) to present their ongoing or

completed work at the Student Research Workshop. We invite two types of student


- Full Papers – unpublished original research of the student.

- Short Papers – either a work in progress or a research proposal.

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between

young researchers by providing an excellent opportunity to present and discuss

their work in progress or completed projects to an international research

audience and receive feedback from senior researchers. The research being

presented can come from any topic area within Natural Language Processing (NLP)

and computational linguistics, including but not limited to the following topic


phonetics and phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, discourse,

pragmatics, dialogue, mathematical foundations, formal grammars and languages,

finite-state technology, statistical models for natural language processing,

machine learning, word embeddings, deep learning for NLP, similarity,

evaluation, sublanguages and controlled languages, lexicography, language

resources and corpora, terminology, corpus annotation, ontologies, complexity,

text segmentation, POS tagging, parsing, semantic role labelling, word-sense

disambiguation, computational treatment of multiword expressions, textual

entailment, anaphora and coreference resolution, temporal processing, natural

language generation, speech recognition, text-to-speech synthesis, knowledge

acquisition, text categorisation, machine translation, including statistical

machine translation and neural machine translation, translation technology

including translation memory systems, information retrieval, information

extraction, event extraction, question answering, text summarisation, term

extraction, text and web mining, opinion mining and sentiment analysis,

multimodal systems, natural language processing for educational applications,

automated writing assistance, text simplification, NLP for biomedical texts,

author profiling and related applications, application-orientated papers related

to NLP, chatbots, fact checking, computer-aided language learning, stance

detection, computational cognitive modelling, dialect processing, language and

vision, multilingual NLP, NLP for language disorders, NLP for social media, NLP

for the semantic web, patents search, theoretical NLP, theoretical papers

related to NLP.

Papers at the borderline between two sciences (such as Translation Studies,

Psycholinguistics, etc.), but bearing contributions to NLP will be also accepted

for review. All accepted papers will be presented at the Student Workshop

sessions during the main conference days: 4-6 September 2017. The articles will

be issued in a special Student Session proceedings and uploaded to the ACL


Important dates

Submission deadline: 04 July 2017

Acceptance notification: 10 August 2017

Camera-ready deadline: 20 August 2017

Workshop: 04-06 September 2017

Submission Requirements

All papers must be submitted in .pdf format through the conference management

system at https://www.softconf.com/ranlp2017/RANLPStud/. The papers should

follow the format of the main conference, described at the main RANLP website,

Submission Guidelines Section (http://lml.bas.bg/ranlp2017/submissions.php). All

papers must have only student authors. Submission with non-student authors will

not be considered for review. After eventual acceptance of the paper, the

authors could add their supervisor(s) in the Acknowledgments Section. The

submissions must specify the student's level (Bachelor-, Master-, or PhD) and

the type of submission (Full or Short).

- *Full* Papers must describe original unpublished work of the student in

any topic area of the workshop. Full papers are limited to 8 pages for

content, with 2 additional pages for references.

- *Short* Papers may describe either work in progress or a research proposal.

They may also be in the style of a position paper that surveys and critiques

existing literature. Short papers must include clear directions for future

research. Submissions of this type are limited to 6 pages for content, with 2

additional pages for references.

Authors may submit the same paper at several conferences. In this case, they

must notify the organisers by filling in the corresponding information in the

submission form, as well as notifying the contact organizer by e-mail.

Reviewing Procedure

The reviewing of the papers will be double-blind, so the submissions should not

contain author information. Papers should not contain references such as “We

previously showed at Doe (2015) …” but rather “Doe (2015) showed that…”. Non

anonymous papers will be rejected.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least 2 reviewers from the Programme

Committee, who will feature experienced researchers from all areas of NLP. The

final decisions will be made based on their reviews.
