### 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 .
