Student Sessions
at the
31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

22 - 26 June, 1993
Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio, USA

PURPOSE: The goal of these sessions is to provide a forum for student
members to present their work in progress and receive feedback from
other members of the computational linguistics community, particularly
senior researchers. The sessions will be workshop-style, consisting of
short paper presentations and discussion. The papers will be published
in a special section of the conference proceedings. Note that having
student sessions for the presentation of ongoing work in NO way
influences the treatment of student-written papers submitted to the
main conference. Rather, the student sessions will provide an entirely
separate track emphasizing students' work in progress rather than
completed work.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe original, unpublished work in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. Authors must have
ACL Student Membership (or be students even though paying the regular
member rate because they earn a regular income) at the time of the
conference. For membership information contact Don Walker at the
address below. Because of differences in focus (complete results vs.
work in progress) and submission format, papers submitted to the main
conference can not be considered for the student sessions. Students
may, of course, submit DIFFERENT papers to BOTH the main conference and
the student sessions, and papers on different aspects of a particular
problem or project are acceptable. Self-references which reveal the
authors' identity should be avoided as much as possible (e.g., write
``[Smith, 1991] showed that ...'' instead of ``We previously showed
[Smith, 1991] ...''), since reviewing will be ``blind''.

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Submitted papers are limited to 3 pages
(including a mandatory abstract, references, figures, and appendices)
and must be laid out in the conventional double-column conference
format, with typeface no smaller than 10 pt. For LaTeX users, the
``aaai'', ``kr89'', and ``ijcai91'' styles are recommended. Each page
must have a 1" margin on all sides. To accommodate a blind-review
process, the author and institution information must not be included in
the paper submissions. Rather, a SEPARATE cover page must be supplied,
including the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), postal
addresses, email addresses (if available), phone numbers, and a copy of
the abstract.

MEDIUM OF SUBMISSION: Authors have the option of submitting their
papers by hardcopy only, by email only, or by both hardcopy and email.
Email submissions are encouraged.

EMAIL ONLY SUBMISSION: LaTeX, Postscript, or ASCII formats are
acceptable. For portability, email submissions should use a
standard font, such as computer modern, and 8.5"x11" or A4 size
pages. Authors submitting a LaTeX source file should include any
style files used by the source file. NOTE: the cover page must be
mailed in a separate email message from the paper. Email
submissions should be sent to:


HARDCOPY ONLY SUBMISSION: Four copies of the paper and one copy of
the cover page should be sent to:

Linda Suri (ACL Student Sessions)
Department of Computer and Information Sciences
103 Smith Hall
University of Delaware
Newark, DE 19716, USA

SUBMISSION should be followed, and one copy of the paper and one
copy of the cover page should be sent to Suri at the address

SCHEDULE: Submissions in either format must be RECEIVED by 1 FEBRUARY
1993. Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by 5 FEBRUARY 1993.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by 15 MARCH 1993. Camera-ready
copies of final papers must be received by 1 MAY 1993.
