Q: I am attending NAACL SRW 2022 in-person. What will the presentation format be?

A: Everyone attending in-person should prepare a physical poster. These will be presented on Day 2 of the conference. Students who submitted thesis proposals will be given the opportunity to do a 15-minute oral presenations, also on Day 2.

Q: What size should my in-person poster be, and how do I get it printed?

A: Your poster should have maximum dimensions of 4’ width x 8’ height. Your university ought to have resources to print posters (check the library). If not, you should be able to pay to print it on site at the FedEx Office in the conference center.

Q: Can I submit my non-archival accepted paper in other venues?

A: Yes.

Q: In case the student author is unable to attend due to university examinations, is it possible for the equally contributing other author to apply for the travel grant?

A: Yes.

Q: Can I submit supplemental materials?

A: Answer updated for 2022. Supplementaty materials are permitted, but your paper should stand alone without requiring reading of them. Supplemental code and data should be submitted on OpenReview. Appendices should be appended starting on a new page after the References section in your main paper PDF.

Q: Where should I submit for pre-submission mentoring?

A: You may e-mail with the follow information:

Please see the instructions under the Mentoring page.

Q: What are the restrictions on the number of pages for a paper submitted to the Student Research Workshop?

A: See the NAACL-SRW author guidelines for page limits and submission information: Author Guidelines

Q: Double submission: where should it be mentioned that the paper will be submitted to other conference for reviewing?

A: Double submission to the NAACL SRW and the main NAACL conference / other NAACL workshops is prohibited.

Q: If accepted, can a paper be published in the proceedings, even if it the student cannot take part at the workshop?

A: The NAACL organizing team will attempt to provide travel grants to authors of all accepted papers. However, if things still don’t work out, we can discuss remote presentation options should your paper be accepted.

Q: If the student is graduating before the mentoring/submission deadline, can they still submit to SRW?

A: If the bulk of the work was done when the author was a student, it is acceptable to submit to SRW.

Q: If an author is to submit to the SRW in the non-archival tract, is it possible to resubmit to the main track of this year’s ACL?

A: The spirit of the SRW is to give you feedback to improve your work. If you submit to the mentoring deadline, the mentoring will prove useful. Otherwise, two days isn’t much time to incorporate feedback for an ACL submission, so this goes against the spirit of the rule but is technically allowed.

Q: What are the guidelines for the Camera-ready version?

A: Camera ready FAQs are available here.
