    1. General Invitation for Submissions

    The Student Research Workshop is an established tradition at ACL
    conferences. The main purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum
    for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to
    Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. We would
    like to invite student researchers to submit their work to the
    workshop. Seeing that the main mission of the student workshop is to
    provide the participants with a wide audience and useful feedback, the
    emphasis of the workshop will be on work in progress. For the Student
    Workshop, original, and unpublished research is invited on all aspects
    of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these
    topic areas:

      - pragmatics
      - discourse
      - semantics
      - syntax and the lexicon
      - phonetics
      - phonology and morphology
      - interpreting and generating spoken and written language
      - linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language
      - language-oriented information retrieval and information extraction
      - corpus-based language modeling
      - machine translation and translation aids
      - natural language interfaces and dialogue systems
      - approaches to coordinating the linguistic with other modalities in
        multi-media systems
      - message and narrative understanding systems

    The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops, and demos.
    See the Main ACL/EACL 2001 page for information:

    2. Submission Requirements

    Papers should describe original work in progress. 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 papers can have more than one author;
    however, all authors MUST be students. A paper accepted for
    presentation at the Student Workshop cannot be presented or have been
    presented at any other meeting with publicly available published
    proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must
    indicate this immediately after the title material on the first page.

    3. Submission Procedure

    Paper Registration
    Registration of your submission is required. This can be done by
    filling out a form available at the web site of the workshop:

    After you fill out and submit this form, a unique ID number will be
    generated and sent to you in an e-mail shortly after the paper
    registration. You will then be able to use this ID number instead of
    your name on the title page of the paper and in any subsequent
    correspondence with the workshop co-chairs.

    If you are unable to use the on-line form for paper registration or
    experience problems using it, please, send email to

    Submission format

    Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
    should not exceed six (6) pages, including references. We strongly
    recommend the use of ACL latex style files or Microsoft Word Style
    files tailored for this year's conference. These will soon be
    available from the web site:

    These style files allow for a graceful transition to the style
    required for publication. A description of the format will also be
    available in case you are unable to use these style files directly.

    4. Reviewing Procedure

    Reviewing of papers submitted to the Student Workshop will be managed
    by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs, each of whom will have the
    assistance of a team of reviewers. Each submission will be matched
    with a mixed panel of student and senior researchers for review. The
    final acceptance decision will be made based on the results of the

    Note that reviewing of papers will be blind; therefore, please, make
    sure you do not put the author(s) name(s) on the title page. (See
    paper submission requirements for details). You should not have any
    self-identifying references anywhere in the paper submitted for
    review. For example, you can't have a reference like this "We showed
    previously (Smith, 1991), ..." Instead, use citations such as "Smith
    previously showed (Smith, 1991)..."
