Long and Short paper submission deadline: June 2, 2014 Author response period: July 5-8, 2014 Acceptance notification: July 22, 2014 Camera-ready submission deadline: August 26, 2014 Workshops: October 25 and 29, 2014 Main conference: October 26-28, 2014
All deadlines are calculated at 11:59pm (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Submissions should describe original, unpublished work.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 (and see below for details of the multiple submission policy).
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 2014 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 program 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 program 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 (and ensure that your paper is Letter size). We reserve the right to reject submissions if the paper does not conform to these styles, including letter size 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 minimize network congestion we request authors upload their submissions as early as possible (especially if they contain large supplementary material files).
