First Call For Papers


PROPOR 2018 Student Research Workshop

24-26 September, 2018

Canela, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

Deadline for Submissions: April 22, 2018 (11:59pm UTC -3)



The Student Research Workshop (SRW) will be held in conjunction with PROPOR 2018. The workshop is designed to provide a venue for student researchers in Computational Linguistics, Linguistic Resources and Natural Language Processing to present their work, with a focus on Portuguese and related languages.

The workshop 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 and advanced undergraduate students. The first author of

multi-author papers must be a student, but additional co-authors need not

be students.


Thesis Proposal - for advanced students who have decided on a thesis

topic and are interested in feedback about their proposal and ideas about

future directions for their work. Proposals may only have one author,

who must be a student.


Submission Criteria and Procedure:


The document must focus on some aspect of written and spoken Portuguese

processing and related issues. In general, any topic that falls within the

scope of PROPOR call for papers (http://www.inf.ufrgs.br/propor-2018/) is

appropriate. In this edition, we also welcome submissions on computational

aspects of Portuguese related languages, such as Spanish, Galician,

indigenous languages in contact with Portuguese and Creole variants.


Documents must be submitted in English.


Documents must be submitted in PDF format, following the same style of

PROPOR 2018 (Springer LNCS). Submissions are limited to 5 pages + 1 for

references only, including all figures, tables, and should begin with an

abstract of 250 words or less.

LaTeX style:


MS Word style:



Due to the nature of the workshop, in this edition we will experiment

with non-blind reviewing, for both authors and reviewers. Therefore, the

submission should include author names and affiliations.


Submission deadline is April 22, 2018. The submission link will be

posted at a later date on the workshop website.


Notifications to authors will be sent on June 15, 2018.


Accepted entrants must prepare an A0 poster (portrait format) to be

presented at a special session.

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 PROPOR SRW 2018 must notify the program chairs whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the workshop in order for them 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. Double submissions to the PROPOR main conference and the Student Research Workshop are not allowed.

In the case of two different submissions, the authors must ensure that these submissions do not overlap significantly (> 50%) with each other in content or results.

Any questions can be send to: propor2018srw at gmail.com
