The SRW workshop will be held in conjunction with NAACL HLT 2015:

General Invitation for Submission

The Student Research Workshop 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 main call for papers for a list of topics.
