Submission requirements

———————————————

Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original,
completed and

unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and
analysis

should be included. Submissions will be judged on appropriateness,
clarity,

originality/innovativeness, correctness/soundness, meaningful
comparison,

thoroughness, significance, contributions to research resources, and

replicability.  Each submission will be reviewed by at least
three program

committee members.

Long papers must follow the two-column format of EACL 2017 (see
below) and

may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited

references. Final versions of long papers will be given one
additional page

of content (up to 9 pages) so that reviewers’ comments can be taken
into

account.

Long papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by
the

program committee. The decisions as to which papers will be
presented orally

and which as posters will be based on the nature rather than the
quality of

the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between
long

papers presented orally and as posters.  The long paper
submission deadline

is:

  Friday, 30 September 2016, 23:59 GMT

For electronic submission of long papers, please use:

  https://www.softconf.com/eacl2017/main

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished
work.  Please

note that a short paper is not a shortened long paper. Instead,
short papers

should have a point that can be made in a few pages, for example: a
small,

focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an
opinion piece;

an interesting application nugget. Each short paper submission will
be

reviewed by at least two program committee members.

Short papers must follow the two-column format of EACL 2014 (see

below). They may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, plus
unlimited

references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given five (5)
content

pages in the proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use this
additional page

to address reviewer comments in their final versions.

Short papers will be presented in one or more oral or poster
sessions.  

While short papers will be distinguished from long papers in the
 

proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between
 

short papers presented orally and as posters.

The deadline for submission of short papers is:

  Friday, 16 December 2016, 23:59 GMT

For electronic submission of short papers, please use:

  https://www.softconf.com/eacl2017/shortpapers

Submission format

————————————

Submissions must be in PDF, and must conform to the official style

guidelines for EACL 2017. We strongly recommend the use of EACL
LaTeX style

files. These are available on the conference website.  As the
reviewing will

be blind, papers must not include authors’ names and

affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author’s

identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) …” must be

avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Smith previously showed
(Smith,

1991) …” Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be
rejected

without review.

Multiple submission policy

————————————————

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications

must indicate this at submission time, and must be withdrawn from
the other

venues if accepted by EACL 2017. Authors of papers accepted for
presentation

at EACL 2017 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready
deadline as

to whether the paper will be presented. We will not accept for
publication

or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or
results with

papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere.

Papers that have only appeared on preprint servers such as
arXiv.org, or in

ACL-related workshops that do not have published proceedings in the
ACL

Anthology, do not count as previously published. Such papers may be

submitted to EACL 2017. Note that the version submitted for review
must be

suitably anonymized, and should not contain references to the prior

non-archival version.

Authors submitting more than one paper to EACL 2017 must ensure that
 

submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other
in  

content or results.
