We welcome three types of submissions:
  • Technical papers (complete work, up to 8 pages). To encourage thorough citation of related work, the references section does not count against the 8 page limit: up to one additional page is allowed for the references section of a submitted paper.
  • Late-breaking papers (work in progress, up to 4 pages)
  • Position papers (perspectives or speculations, up to 2 pages).
Papers will be selected based on quality and relevance to workshop goals. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings. The submission deadline is March 6, 23:59 PST. The submission period has CLOSED.

All submissions must follow the two-column NAACL HLT format: As reviewing will be double-blind, author information should not be included in the papers and self-reference should be avoided.

Dual submission policy: We accept submissions that are in review for other conferences/workshops. However, once accepted, we ask that you make a choice regarding which conference to present at.
