SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics' special interest group
on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP, invites submissions to
EMNLP 2013. The conference will be held on October 18-21, 2013, in Seattle,
USA. The conference will consist of three days of full paper presentations
preceded by one day of workshops.

Conference URL: http://hum.csse.unimelb.edu.au/emnlp2013/

We solicit papers on all areas of interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned
fields, including but not limited to:

 ・ Phonology, Morphology, Tagging, Chunking and Segmentation
 ・ Syntax and Parsing
 ・ Semantics
 ・ Discourse, Dialogue, and Pragmatics
 ・ Language Resources
 ・ Summarization and Generation
 ・ NLP-related Machine Learning: Theory, Methods and Algorithms
 ・ Machine Translation
 ・ Information Retrieval and Question Answering
 ・ Information Extraction
 ・ Spoken Language Processing
 ・ Text Mining and Natural Language Processing Applications
 ・ Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining
 ・ NLP for the Web and Social Media
 ・ Computational Models of Human Language Processing


 ・ Long and short paper submission deadline: July 5, 2013
 ・ Author response period: May 14–17, 2013
 ・ Acceptance notification (long and short papers): August 26, 2013
 ・ Camera-ready submission deadline: September 16, 2013

All deadlines are calculated at 11:59pm Samoa time (UTC/GMT −11 hours)


Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Papers presented at
EMNLP should mainly contain new material that has not been presented at any
other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that have been or
will be submitted to other meetings or publications must disclose this
information at submission time. Please list all other meetings where the paper
has been submitted in the "other submissions" field on the submission site.

Each long paper submission consists of a paper of up to nine (9) pages of
content and any number of additional pages containing references only,
together with optional supplementary material as described below.

EMNLP 2013 also solicits short papers. Characteristics of short papers include:

 ・ A small, focused contribution
 ・ Work in progress
 ・ A negative result
 ・ An opinion piece
 ・ An interesting application nugget

Short papers will be presented orally or as a poster (at the discretion of the
programme chairs), and will be given four (4) pages plus 2 pages for
references in the proceedings. While short papers will be distinguished from
long papers in the proceedings, there will be no distinction in the
proceedings between short papers presented orally or as posters.  Each short
paper submission will be reviewed by at least two programme committee members.

Both long and short papers should follow the two-column format of NAACL 2013
proceedings. Please use the official NAACL 2013 style files for the paper. We
reserve the right to reject submissions if the paper does not conform to these
guidelines, including page type and font size restrictions.

As reviewing will be blind, the submission 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 (1991) previously showed
...”. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected
without review. Separate author identification information is required as part
of the on-line submission process.

The supplementary material should be supplementary (rather than central) to
the paper. It may include explanations or details of proofs or derivations
that do not fit into the paper, lists of features or feature templates, sample
inputs and outputs for a system, pseudo-code or source code, and data. The
paper should not rely on the supplementary material: while the paper may refer
to and cite the supplementary material and the supplementary material will be
available to reviewers, they will not be asked to review or even download the
supplementary material.

Submission and reviewing will be on-line, managed by the START system. The
only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. The supplementary
material must be in the form of a single .zip or a .tgz archive file with a
maximum size of 10MB; otherwise there are no constraints on its
format. Submissions, together with all supplementary material, must be
uploaded to the START system by the submission deadlines; submissions
submitted after that time will not be reviewed. To minimise network congestion
we request authors upload their submissions as early as possible (especially
if they contain large supplementary material files).
