First Call for Papers *19th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2020)* * Düsseldorf, Germany, August 17-18, 2020*

Workshop website: https://tlt2020.phil.hhu.de Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tlt2020 Submission deadline: May 22, 2020

The 19th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2020) will bring together developers and users of linguistically annotated natural language corpora.

The 2020 edition will take place on the 17th and 18th of August 2020 in Düsseldorf. This is shortly after ESSLLI 2020 in Utrecht and shortly before ICCG 2020 in Antwerp, both within easy reach by train. Submission Guidelines

TLT addresses all aspects of treebank design, development, and use. As “treebanks” we consider any pairing of natural language data (spoken, signed, or written) with annotations of linguistic structure at various levels of analysis, including, e.g., morpho-phonology, syntax, semantics, and discourse. Annotations can take any form (including trees and general graphs), but they should be encoded in a way that enables computational processing. Types of papers we expect deal with, e.g., reflections on the design of linguistic annotations, methodological studies, resource announcements or updates, development of annotation or conversion tools, and reports on treebank usage.

We invite paper submissions in two distinct tracks:

- *Regular papers* on substantial, original, and unpublished research,

including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate; and

- *Short papers* on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress,

negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces.

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind by at least three experts in the field.

All papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will be included in the TLT 2020 proceedings volume, to be published by the Association for Computational Linguistics in the ACL Anthology <https://www.aclweb.org/anthology/>. Formats

Regular papers may consist of up to 10 pages of content (excluding references). Short papers may consist of up to 5 pages of content (excluding references).

All submissions should follow the style guidelines and use the templates created for SyntaxFest 2019, available at https://github.com/syntaxfest/syntaxfest19/blob/master/SyntaxFestStyles.zip.

Submissions of regular and short papers must be anonymous, i.e., not reveal author(s) on the title page or through self-references. So, e.g. “We previously showed (Zeng, 2018)…” should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Zeng (2018) previously showed…” Papers must be submitted digitally, in PDF, and uploaded through the on-line conference system:


Submissions that violate either of these requirements will be rejected without review. Important Dates
