NAACL-HLT 2007 Conference in Rochester, NY


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.
