CALL FOR PAPERS
The Student Research Workshop (SRW) will be held in conjunction with ACL 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.
Main Conference: July 30 – August 4, 2017
Paper Submission Deadline: April 21, 2017
I. General Invitation for Submissions
The ACL 2017 Student Research Workshop (SRW) provides a forum for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for student participants to present their work and receive valuable feedback from the international research community as well as from selected panelists – experienced researchers, specifically assigned according to the topic of their work, who will prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation. The workshop’s goal is to aid students at multiple stages of their education: from those in the final stages of undergraduate training to those active with graduate thesis research.
The SRW 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 or advanced undergraduate students.
* Research Proposals: for advanced Masters and Ph.D. students who have decided on a thesis topic and are interested in feedback about their proposal and ideas about future directions for their work.
This year we provide two mentoring programs:
* Pre-submission Mentoring: the goal is to improve presentation of the student’s work, not to critique the work itself. Mentors will provide feedback in the format of guidelines and suggestions to improve the overall writing.
* Mentoring for Accepted Papers: mentors will be responsible for providing feedback to students and preparing in-depth comments and questions prior to the workshop presentation.
The SRW invites papers on topics related to computational linguistics, including but not limited to:
Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics
Corpus development and evaluation
Dialog and interactive systems
Discourse and pragmatics
Document analysis including text categorization, topic models, and retrieval
Natural language generation
Information extraction, text mining, and question answering
Language-inclusive multimodal integration
Linguistic theories for NLP
Low-resource or endangered languages
Mathematical models of language
Phonology, morphology, and word segmentation
Resources and evaluation
Sentiment analysis and opinion mining
Social media: Twitter, blogs, discussion forums, and other social media
Speech, prosody, and spoken dialog
Tagging, chunking, syntax, and parsing
Vision, robots, and other grounding applications
