The Doctoral Consortium at
NAACL-HLT 2007 will provide an opportunity for a group of senior
Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research and career
objectives with a panel of established researchers in the fields of
natural language processing, speech technology, and information
retrieval. The event is also an opportunity for students to develop
the skills necessary to effectively communicate one's research in
preparation for future job talks.
The Doctoral Consortium will be held as a workshop on April 22, 2007,
immediately before the start of the main conference. Students will
present their work and get feedback from a panel of experienced
researchers. The event will also include a panel presentation on
professional development topics relevant to students pursuing a career
in research in academia or industry.
Students will participate in a poster session held during the main
conference and will have a short paper discussing their research
published in the companion volume of the proceedings. Each student's
professional biography, research abstract, and photograph will also be
included in a face book to be distributed to all attendees of the
main NAACL-HLT 2007 conference.
