Subject: ACL-92 Student Session Call for Papers


Student Session
at the
30th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

28 June - 2 July 1992
University of Delaware
Newark, Delaware, USA

PURPOSE: This session provides a forum in which student members
can present work in progress and receive feedback from other members
of the computational linguistics community, particularly senior
researchers. The session will be workshop-style, consisting of
short paper presentations and discussion.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe original, unpublished work in
progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise. Topics
of interest are the same as for the main conference. All authors
must have ACL Student Membership at the time of the conference.
For membership information contact Don Walker at the address below.
Papers submitted to the main conference will not be considered for
the student session. Students may of course submit papers to both.
Note that having a student session for the presentation of ongoing
work in NO way influences the treatment of student-written papers
submitted to the main conference. Rather, the student session will
provide an entirely separate track emphasizing students' ``work in
progress'' rather than completed work.

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of an
extended abstract up to 3 pages long (including title, authors,
references, etc). Submissions should be laid out in the conventional
double-column conference format, with 1 inch margins on all sides,
and a typeface no smaller than 10 pt. In addition, a SEPARATE
``topic area'' page should include the title, name(s) of the
author(s), complete addresses (including e-mail), and one or more
keywords identifying the topic area. Send to:

Lenhart Schubert (ACL Student Session)
University of Rochester
Computer Science Department
Rochester, NY, 14627-0226 USA

EMAIL SUBMISSION: As an experiment, authors are encouraged to submit
an additional copy of their paper via email. LaTeX, Postscript,
or ASCII formats are acceptable. Also, please note the SCHEDULE
information below. Email submissions should be directed to:

traum@cs.rochester.edu (David Traum (+1-716) 275-7230)

SCHEDULE: Submissions must be RECEIVED by 10 FEBRUARY 1992. Authors
submitting email versions must have email versions arrive by this date
and hardcopy versions postmarked by this date; authors not submitting
email versions must have the hardcopy arrive by this date. Authors
will be notified of acceptance by 20 MARCH 1992. Camera ready copies
of final papers must be received by 20 APRIL 1992.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION: Programs and registration forms will be
mailed in March to ACL members. Nonmembers interested in receiving
copies, dues statements, and other information about the conference
or concerning the ACL generally, should contact Don Walker (ACL),
