Submission Guidelines

Submission requirements
  1. Thesis/Research Proposals may contain previously published work and must include specific research directions. They may also be in the style of a position paper that surveys and critiques existing literature, but must suggest future research directions. Proposals may only have one author, who must be a student.
  2. Research Papers must describe original completed work or work in progress. Since 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 first author of multi-author papers must be a student, but additional co-authors need not be students. Research Papers are eligible for this workshop only if they have not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Students who have already presented at a past ACL/EACL/NAACL Student Research Workshop may not submit to this track as a first author (though they may still be a co-author, or the first author of a Thesis/Research Proposal). These students are instead encouraged to submit their work to the main conference or to the Thesis Proposal track. During submission, students must clearly indicate whether a paper has been submitted to another conference or workshop. Double submissions to the EACL main conference and the Student Research Workshop are not allowed. One student can only submit one paper to the Research Papers track as a first author.
Submission procedure

Both paper and proposal submissions to the EACL 2017 Student Research Workshop must be in PDF, and must conform to the official style guidelines for EACL 2017. We ask you to use the EACL-2017 LaTeX template available from the conference web site ( To be included in the final proceedings, accepted papers have to be made available both as LaTeX sources and PDF.

All submissions may consist of up to eight pages of content only. Any number of additional pages containing references is allowed.

The deadline for submission is 11:59pm CET on Wednesday, 23 November 2016. Submission will be electronic using the paper submission web page:

Papers will be presented orally or as posters during the main EACL conference as determined by the program committee. Decisions on presentation format will be based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between long papers presented orally and as posters.

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 EACL SRW 2017 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 EACL main conference and the Student Research Workshop are not allowed, and the authors must ensure that these submissions do not overlap significantly (> 50%) with each other in content or results.

Reviewing procedure

The reviewing of both research proposals and papers will be double-blind. Reviewing will be managed by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs and 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 based on the results of the review.
