Submissions

We accept papers reporting original (unpublished) research of two types:

-

Long papers (max 6 pages + references)

-

Short papers (max 3 pages + references)

All submissions should be anonymized to facilitate double blind reviewing. To submit a paper, please access the submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nllp2020

Conference proceedings will be published on the CEUR Workshop Proceedings <http://ceur-ws.org/>.

Non-archival option

The authors have the option of submitting previously unpublished research as non-archival, meaning that only the abstract will be published in the conference proceedings. We expect these submissions to describe the same quality of work as archival submissions. These will be reviewed following the same procedure as archival submissions. This option accommodates publication of the work or a superset at a later date in a conference or journal which does not allow previously archived work and to encourage presentation and feedback on mature, yet unpublished work.

Dual Submission Policy

Papers that have been or will be submitted to workshops, conferences or journals during the review period must indicate so at submission time. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at the NLLP workshop 2020 must notify the organizers by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented or withdrawn. Exception: Submissions with the non-archival option are excepted from this requirement.

Style & Format Guidelines

Submissions to the workshop must be in PDF and should follow the KDD paper formatting. <https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template>

Notification: 15 June 2020
