Call for Papers

 
### NAACL 2016 Student Research Workshop (SRW) ###

The SRW workshop will be held in conjunction with NAACL HLT 2016 in Diego,
California.

Main conference: June 13-15, 2016

Paper Submission Deadline: March 21, 2016 (11:59pm PST)

### General Invitation for Submission ####

The Student Research Workshop (SRW) provides a venue for student researchers to
present their work in computational linguistics and natural language processing.
Students receive feedback from the general conference audience as well as from
mentors specifically assigned according to the topic of their work.

We invite papers in three different categories:

* Thesis Proposals. This category is appropriate for advanced students who have
decided on a thesis topic and wish to get feedback on their proposal and
broader ideas for their continuing work.
* Research Papers. Papers in this category can describe completed work, or work
in progress with preliminary results. For these papers, the first author must
be a current graduate student.
* Special undergraduate track. In order to encourage undergraduate research, we
are offering a special track for research papers where the first author is an
undergraduate student.

Topics of interest for the SRW are the same as NAACL main conference. See the
list of topics at http://naacl.org/naacl-hlt-2016/cfp.html .

Benefits of participation
-------------------------
* All accepted papers will be presented in the main conference poster session
giving students an opportunity to interact with and present their work to a
large and diverse audience, including top researchers in the field.
* All accepted papers (thesis, research, undergraduate) will be published in
the NAACL 2016 SRW Proceedings.
* Each participant is also assigned a mentor---an experienced researcher---who
can provide valuable advice.

Important Dates
----------------
* Papers must be submitted by March 21, 2016.

All deadlines are calculated at 11:59 pm (PST/GMT -8 hours)
