CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ANLP-NAACL 2000 STUDENT RESEARCH WORKSHOP
This year, student members will be presenting their exciting work in
progress at the newly designed Student Research Workshop. If you've ever
wanted to provide encouragement and scientific guidance to upcoming
researchers, this is your opportunity. Registration for the workshop is
included in your conference registration fee, and we encourage everyone to
attend and participate. The workshop will take place on Sunday, April 30,
and will run all day.
Our review committee has selected eight student papers for presentation at
the workshop based on their scholarship, originality, and technical merit.
These papers (listed below) cover many areas of NLP, including:
- text planning and natural language generation
- corpus-based and statistical text processing
- information extraction and information retrieval
- machine translation
- robust parsing and syntactic error detection
- word sense disambiguation and semantic annotation
- discourse and aggregation
In addition to audience comments, a panel of established scientists, each an
expert in areas relevant to the student presentations, will be chosen to
provide the students with in-depth feedback and suggestions on future
directions, similar to the highly acclaimed Doctoral Consortia at other
conferences. This new format is intended to provide students with
invaluable exposure to outside perspectives on their work, and will also
allow them to put their work into perspective based on feedback from the
panel. If you would like to be considered to serve on the scientific panel,
please contact the workshop co-chairs at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
PLEASE NOTE: pre-registration for the workshop is strongly encouraged.
Please indicate your desire to attend by checking the appropriate box on the
conference registration form. Registered participants will receive detailed
information about the schedule and location of the workshop at a later date.
Up-to-date information is also available on the workshop home page
We invite you to come to the Student Research Workshop to hear some
excellent presentations by the next generation of CL scientists, and to
encourage these and other students in their ongoing and future research!
