Short papers must include clear directions for future research. Submissions of this type are limited to 4 pages for content, with unlimited number of pages for references.

Please also note the following:

  • Both types of submissions must follow the ACL two-column format, using the official ACL style templates, which are available from here (Latex and Word). Please submit your papers in PDF format.
  • The review will be double-blind. Please do not include any self-identifying information in the submission. This includes anonymizing the already-published work by removing acknowledgments, self-citations, etc.
  • For papers accepted as a full paper, please follow the format requirement for long papers. For papers accepted as a poster, please follow the format requirement for short papers. Papers that do not follow the required format may not be able to include the final proceedings.
