We welcome submissions in three distinct categories: regular workshop papers, cross-submissions and extended abstracts. There will be no archival proceedings. Submissions should be made to: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/NLP4CONVAI2019.

*Regular Workshop Papers*

Authors should submit a paper of up to 4-8 pages long, with unlimited space for references and supplementary material. All submissions should follow the ACL 2019 style and formatting guidelines ( http://www.acl2019.org/EN/call-for-papers.xhtml). The papers should present novel research. Reviewing will be double-blind, so please do not include any self-identifying information in the submission.

*Extended Abstracts*

Preliminary but interesting ideas that have not been published before may be submitted as extended abstracts. These should be up to 2 pages long and would benefit from additional exposure and discussion but are currently not ready for publication. Reviewing will be double-blind, so please do not include any self-identifying information in the submission.


In addition to previously unpublished work, we invite papers on relevant topics which have appeared in alternative venues (such as other NLP or ML conferences). Accepted cross-submissions will be presented as posters, with an indication of the original venue. Selection of cross-submissions will be determined solely by the organizing committee.

*Best Paper Prizes and Student Travel Grants*

We are aiming to provide best paper prizes and student travel grants with the exact number and amount of support to be decided.


Please contact Yun-Nung Chen [y.v.chen at ieee.org] or Tsung-Hsien Wen [ shawnwen at poly-ai.com] if you have any questions regarding the paper submission.

*Organisers* Yun-Nung Chen, Tania Bedrax-Weiss, Dilek Hakkani-Tur, Anuj Kumar, Mike Lewis, Thang-Minh Luong, Pei-Hao Su, Tsung-Hsien Wen
