SIGNLL, the Association for Computational Linguistics' Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning, invites submissions to the 24th SIGNLL Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning (CoNLL 2020). The conference will be held on November 11-12, 2020, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, immediately following EMNLP 2020.
- Emmanuel Dupoux (EHESS and Ecole Normale Supérieur, Paris, France) - Kristina Tautanova (Google, Seattle, USA)
The main focus of CoNLL is on theoretically, cognitively and scientifically motivated approaches to computational linguistics, rather than on work driven by particular engineering applications. Such approaches include:
- Computational learning theory and other techniques for theoretical
analysis of machine learning models for NLP - Models of first, second and bilingual language acquisition by humans - Models of language evolution and change - Computational simulation and analysis of findings from
psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experiments - Analysis and interpretation of NLP models using methods inspired by
cognitive science or linguistics, or other methods - Data resources, techniques and tools for scientifically-oriented
research in computational linguistics - Connections between computational models and formal languages or
linguistic theories - Linguistic typology and other multilingual work
We welcome work targeting any aspect of language, including:
- Speech and phonology - Lexical and compositional semantics - Syntactic parsing - Discourse and coreference - Dialogue and interactive language use - Sociolinguistics - Multimodal and grounded language learning
Submitted papers must be anonymous and adhere to the CoNLL format by using our LaTeX style files or Word template. Submitted papers may consist of up to 8 pages of content plus unlimited space for references. Authors of accepted papers will have an additional page to address reviewers' comments in the camera-ready version (9 pages of content in total, excluding references). Anonymized supplementary materials are allowed as an optional PDF appendix, in line with EMNLP 2020 guidelines. Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system.
CoNLL adheres to the ACL anonymity policy, as described in the EMNLP 2020 Call for Papers.
*Multiple submission policy*
CoNLL 2020 will not consider any paper that is under review at the time of submission, and submitted papers must not be submitted elsewhere during the CoNLL 2020 review period. In addition, we will not consider any paper that overlaps significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere. Authors submitting more than one paper to CoNLL 2020 must ensure that the submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other in content or results.
- May 5, 2020: Anonymity period starts - June 5, 2020: Paper submission deadline - August 28, 2020: Notification of acceptance and end of anonymity period - November 11-12, 2020: Conference (immediately after EMNLP 2020)
All deadlines are at 11:59pm UTC-12h ("anywhere on earth").
