*Submissions*

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.

*Cross-submissions*

In addition to previously unpublished work, we invite papers on relevant topics which have appeared in alternative venues (such as other NLP or ML conferences).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.

*Contact*

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
