      Студенты и аспиранты, обратите внимание:
      The EACL has a limited number of student sponsorships available to
      student participants of the EACL 2006 main conference, the EACL 2006
      poster/demo session and/or the EACL 2006 student session.

      Priority is given to students from Eastern Europe and more generally,
      to students from countries with hard currency problems (within the
      geographical area covered by EACL).

      * * * Submission Deadline: November 8, 2005 * * *

      *FINAL* CALL FOR PAPERS

      Student Research Workshop at EACL-2006
      http://www.softconf.com/start/EACL2006_SWS/submit.html

      1. General Invitation for Submissions

      EACL-2006 will continue the tradition of providing a forum for student
      researchers who are investigating various areas related to
      Computational Linguistics and Natural Language
      Processing. Participants will have the opportunity to get feedback
      both from a wide audience in general and from selected panelists --
      experienced researchers who prepare in-depth comments and questions in
      advance of the presentation.

      The European Association of Computational Linguistics would like to
      invite student researchers to submit their work to the
      workshop. Original and unpublished research is invited on all aspects
      of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to these
      topic areas:

      * phonetics, phonology and morphology;
      * word segmentation, tagging and chunking;
      * syntax, semantics and grammars;
      * pragmatics, discourse and dialogue;
      * the lexicon and ontologies;
      * parsing and grammatical formalisms;
      * generation, text planning and summarization;
      * language modeling, spoken language recognition and
      understanding;
      * mathematical models of language;
      * information retrieval, text categorisation, question answering,
      and information extraction;
      * paraphrasing and textual entailment;
      * machine learning for natural language;
      * multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation
      aids;
      * multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue
      systems;
      * language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
      * evaluation methodology.

      The main conference will also feature tutorials, workshops and
      research notes. Further information on these is available at the main
      conference website.

      2. Submission Requirements

      Seeing that the main mission of the student workshop is to provide the
      participants with a wide audience and useful feedback, the emphasis of
      the workshop will be on work in progress. It will therefore normally
      be open to students who have settled on their thesis direction but who
      still have significant research left to do; those students in the
      final stages of their thesis are encouraged to submit to the main
      conference. Papers should clearly indicate directions for future
      research where appropriate. The papers can have more than one author,
      however all authors must be students.

      A paper accepted for presentation at the Student Workshop cannot be
      presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly
      available proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other
      conferences must indicate this immediately after the title material on
      the first page. Students who have previously presented at an
      ACL/EACL/NAACL student session will not be eligible to present again
      at the student session of any of these conferences. These students are
      instead encouraged to submit to the main conference.

      3. Submission Procedure

      Submissions should follow the two-column formal of EACL/ACL
      proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including
      references. We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or
      Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's conference. They
      will be available at http://eacl06.itc.it/submission/submission.htm. A
      description of the format will also be available in case you are
      unable to use the style files directly. Papers must conform to the
      official EACL 2006 style guidelines, and we reserve the right to
      reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font
      size restrictions. Submissions should be in PDF format and must
      include all fonts, so that the paper will print (not just view)
      anywhere.

      As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors'
      names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
      author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...",
      should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously
      showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to these
      requirements will be rejected without review.

      Submission is electronic, using the paper submission software at
      http://www.softconf.com/start/EACL2006_SWS/submit.html. The papers
      must be submitted no later than 11:59pm (23:59) GMT November 8, 2005.

      Further details on the submissions procedure may be found at the
      student session homepage:
      http://eacl.coli.uni-saarland.de/studentws06/

      4. Reviewing Procedure

      The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed
      by the Student Workshop Co-Chairs and a team of reviewers. Each
      submission will be matched with a mixed panel of student and senior
      researchers for review. The final acceptance decision will be based on
      the results of the review.

      5. Student Sponsorships

      The EACL has a limited number of student sponsorships available to
      student participants of the EACL 2006 main conference, the EACL 2006
      poster/demo session and/or the EACL 2006 student session.

      Priority is given to students from Eastern Europe and more generally,
      to students from countries with hard currency problems (within the
      geographical area covered by EACL).

      A request for student sponsorship for EACL 2006 should include the
      following information:

      * Name, email address, affiliation and status (PhD year etc.) of
      the candidate
      * Source and amount of yearly income
      * Letter of motivation
      * Proof of student status
      * Proof of acceptance from programme chair / student
      workshop chair or poster/demo chair
      * Letter of recommendation from supervisor
      * Overview of the estimated costs

      Requests for student sponsorships can be directed to the EACL at
      secretary@....
