LOT Announcements / events
Oproep LOT Populariseringsprijs 2018, deadline inzendingen: 19 oktober 2017

Aan alle taalkundigen in Nederland

Ook dit jaar looft de Landelijke Onderzoekschool Taalwetenschap de Populariseringsprijs uit. Hiermee wil LOT stimuleren dat taalwetenschappelijke onderwerpen onder de aandacht van een groter publiek worden gebracht. Vanaf 2017 zal LOT ofwel een aanmoedigingsprijs, ofwel een oeuvreprijs uitreiken. De omvang van de prijs bedraagt in beide gevallen 1000 euro.

De prijs van 2018 zal een aanmoedigingsprijs zijn. Deze is bedoeld voor wetenschappers verbonden aan een Nederlandse universiteit die incidenteel een populariseringsactiviteit ontwikkelen. De prijs is gericht op het helpen realiseren van zo’n populariseringsactiviteit, en is dus bedoeld voor nog niet gepubliceerde of gerealiseerde plannen. Voorbeelden zijn het maken van een korte video, een spel, of het schrijven van een populair-wetenschappelijk artikel.

Om in aanmerking te komen voor de prijs moet een plan worden voorgelegd aan de LOT-jury (2 tot 4 A4-tjes) met twee bijlagen: een financiële begroting en ondersteunend materiaal dat de link met het eigen onderzoek aantoont. Met de prijs van 1000 euro dient het plan te worden verwezenlijkt. Het resultaat/product wordt het jaar na de toekenning tijdens de Grote Taaldag gepresenteerd.

Iedere Nederlandse taalkundige onderzoeker kan maximaal één bijdrage ter beoordeling inzenden. De inzendingen worden beoordeeld door een jury die naast taalkundigen ook redacteuren van een dagblad of tijdschrift zal bevatten.

De uitslag zal bekend gemaakt worden op het Taalgala, een feestelijke bijeenkomst voor alle leden van LOT, AVT en Anéla. Op dezelfde dag wordt ook de AVT-Anéla dissertatieprijs uitgereikt. Het Taalgala vindt plaats op 3 februari 2018 in Utrecht.

De sluitingsdatum voor inzending is 19 oktober 2017. Inzendingen mogen (o.v.v. LOT-populariseringsprijs) naar LOT@uu.nl of per post naar Trans 10, 3512 JK Utrecht. Het reglement is digitaal in te zien via

Queen's English is de norm, maar hoe lang nog?

https://www.nemokennislink.nl/publicaties/queen-s-...

Engelsen hebben een groot normbesef als het gaat om taal: in formele situaties hoor je beschaafd Engels te spreken en bepaalde zinsconstructies te vermijden. Toch zijn de meesten tijdens het dagelijks taalgebruik wel een stukje milder in hun oordeel. Dat blijkt uit een onderzoek van taalkundige Carmen Ebner. Zij promoveert op 5 september aan de Universiteit Leiden.


Hoe het brein intonatie ontcijfert

Luisterend naar spraak heeft het brein een boel te doen. Het moet niet alleen ontcijferen wát er is gezegd, maar ook door wie en met welke intonatie. Amerikaanse neuropsychologen hebben uitgezocht welke neuronen verantwoordelijk zijn voor deze drie taken.

Variability in the acquisition of allomorphs. The Dutch diminutive and past tense

Lecture

Tiffany Boersma is the guest speaker at this ACLC seminar. Title and abstract are now available.

Abstract

What factors influence the acquisition of allomorphs? In this presentation findings of three studies in which the development of the Dutch past tense and diminutive allomorphs have been investigated are presented. Adults and typically developing children (5;0 – 10;0) were tested on a production and judgement task.
Allomorphs, phonological variant forms of morphemes, stem from the phonological characteristics of the noun or verb. Earlier studies have found variabilities in the acquisition of allomorphs and various explanations have been given for this. However, a multifactorial understanding that brings together and clarifies the relationships between these explanations is still missing. In this presentation previous results are replicated and the different factors that seem to be involved in the acquisition of allomorphs are tied together. By doing so, a more univocal understanding of why some allomorphs take longer to acquire than others can be obtained.

The results indicate that type frequency and vocabulary size play a role in the sense that children need input to be able to abstract the phonological characteristics of the stem. However, children need to be able to deal with these phonological characteristics before they can actually be aware of and generalize over different phonological patterns. Children’s phonological processing skills and the complexity of the phonological stem characteristics appear therefore to be more direct causes of the protracted acquisition of some allomorphs. The better children’s phonological processing skills and the less complex the phonological characteristics, the better children will be able to abstract the phonological patterns and choose the appropriate allomorph.

National eScience Symposium, Amsterdam, October 12, 2017

Discover how digital technology impacts scientific practice

The Dutch National eScience Symposium is a one-day event where scientists and researchers from different disciplines meet to discover how digital technology impacts scientific practice.

The symposium will feature five thematic sessions showcasing world-class data-driven and compute-intensive research in different fields:

  • Internet of Things

  • Energy Science

  • Natural Language

  • Brain, Cognition and Behavior

  • Future of Machine Learning

The thematic sessions are organized in partnership with SURFnet, NWO-Shell programme, CLARIAH, NeurolabNL and Commit2Data.

Why?

Digital technology cross-cuts all scientific domains. Our understanding of the universe, dealing with the challenges of climate change and discovering new energy sources, analyzing human behavior, or tracking athletes' performances are just a couple of areas where digital technology is being used to enhance scientific research.

The cross-cutting aspect means that technologies used in one field can be applicable across other fields. This annual symposium is an opportunity for anyone working in academia or industry with an interest in digital technology and scientific research. It is thé place to meet researchers, students, data scientists, scientific administrators, CIOs and CTOs dealing with the challenges and potential of digital technologies; from the humanities to physics and beyond.

Workshop ''Ik wil je iets zeggen!' Meertaligheid EN', Sittard, November 3, 2017

'Ik wil je iets zeggen!' Meertaligheid EN (3-11-2017, Sittard)

Verschillende vormen van communicatie in een meertalige samenleving

Op vrijdag 3 november organiseert Fontys OSO , de leerstoel Taalcultuur in Limburg (FASoS, Universiteit Maastricht) en het Meertensinstituut, met medewerking van Campus Sittard en LBRT, een interactieve middag waarin onderzoekers en ervaringsdeskundigen kennis en ervaringen uitwisselen. In een meertalige samenleving kunnen kinderen met een taalontwikkelingsstoornis, autisme of dove/slechthorende kinderen op meerdere manieren communiceren om hun boodschap over te brengen. Vaak ontbreekt een perspectief op deze manieren, evenals op de kwetsbaarheid en de cognitieve, sociale, emotionele en algehele ontwikkeling van deze kinderen. Deze middag staan de Educational Needs van kinderen en jongeren centraal die in een alledaagse meertalige samenleving zoals Limburg, Nederland, Europa opgroeien of zelf meertalig zijn.

We richten ons specifiek op de ondersteuningsbehoeften van kinderen en jongeren die:
· Een taalontwikkelingsstoornis (TOS) hebben;
· Doof of slechthorend zijn (SH);
· Autistisme hebben (ASS).

Meertaligheid definiëren we die middag als meerdere vormen van communiceren dan die waaraan we gewend zijn.
In de workshop zal, naast kennisuitwisseling, een oplossingsgerichte dialoog centraal staan. Dialoog met bezoekers (ouders, kinderen en jongeren zelf, opvoedings- en onderwijsprofessionals, studenten, onderzoekers) wordt actief gezocht.

Meld je hier aan.

Afbeelding: Wetenschappers, professionals, studenten, ervaringsdeskundigen slaan samen een brug tussen wetenschap en praktijk.

Spreek maar! Streektalensymposium 2017, 7 november 2017

Namens de minister van Binnenlandse Zaken en Koninkrijksrelaties nodig ik je uit voor

Spreek maar! Streektalensymposium 2017.

Ben je betrokken bij de promotie van het Limburgs, Nedersaksisch of het Fries? Maak je taalbeleid of spreek je één van deze erkende streektalen en heb je hart voor de zaak van jouw taal? Kom dan op dinsdag 7 november naar:

SPREEK MAAR! STREEKTALENSYMPOSIUM 2017


van het ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken en Koninkrijksrelaties. De bij de erkende streektalen betrokken overheden, taalorganisaties, taalinstituten, wetenschappers en sprekers worden uitgenodigd om mee te spreken over taalbeleid, taalpromotie, de waarde van de erkende streektalen voor de lokale identiteit en de uitdagingen in de toekomst.

Centraal staat de vraag hoe overheden, taalinstituten en andere betrokken organisaties het gebruik van de erkende streektalen zo goed mogelijk kunnen stimuleren. Hoe promoot je een erkende streektaal effectief? Welke factoren zijn van invloed op het levendig gebruik van de erkende streektalen? Welke lokale en nationale beleidsafspraken zijn nodig?

Het symposium richt zich op de regiogebonden streektalen in Nederland die erkend zijn onder het Europees Handvest voor regionale talen of talen van minderheden. Het betreft het Fries, Nedersaksisch en Limburgs. Het symposium staat open voor sprekers en vertegenwoordigers van de drie erkende minderheidstalen, medewerkers van (lokale) overheden, taalorganisaties en taalinstituten en onderzoekers in de taalwetenschap.

Begin oktober ontvang je de officiële uitnodiging en kun je je deelname registeren op

Invitation to the Conference


Modern world is in an permanent, total change. Change, that impacts not only economy, politics and natural environment, but also international communication,language and methods of teaching languages. How to make students interested in language? How to focus them even on the hardest grammar points? How to connect fun and knowledge in learinng foreign languages? What are modern methods of activation in teaching foreign languages and how to use them? The University of Wroclaw, Hanban and the Confucius Institute at the University of Wroclaw do invite you to an International Scientific Conference titled "Teaching Chinese as a foreign language. Engaging and motivating students in the classroom".


We recommend the following topics for the conference:

* modern methology of teaching foreign languages;

* modern technology in activation in teaching foreign languages;

* sources and tools of activation in teaching foreign languages;

* methods of activation in teaching foreign languages in workong with different age-groups;

* authoring methods of activation in teaching foreign languages.


We invite philological researchers, foreign language teachers and methodologists, and linguists and e-learning specialist researchers, especially in sinology. We also invite senior researchers as well as doctoral students.

Conference 'Current Issues of Languages, Dialects and Linguistics', Ahwaz, Iran, February 1-2, 2018

Title of conference: The Second International Conference on Current Issues of Languages, Dialects and Linguistics

Date: 1-2 February, 2018

Venue: Ahwaz, Iran

Website: http://llld.ir/en/

The Second International Conference on Current Issues of Languages, Dialects and Linguistics is organized by Pazoheshgaran Andishmand Institute (Ahwaz, Iran) in association with different universities such as Shahid Chemran University of Ahvaz.

The conference will be dedicated to current issues of different languages and dialects such as Persian, Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish.

Academics and university lecturers are cordially invited to present their research regarding current issues of different languages, dialects and linguistics in English, Arabic or Persian. Such an approach suggests that a linguistic study is no longer limited within a certain field; knowledge from different fields cultivates diversity in linguistic study. Recognizing this trend, the conference organizing committee aims to provide a platform for researchers and scholars from various fields to exchange ideas.

The selective papers of the conference will be published in journals such as Journal of English Language Teaching and will be indexed in CIVILICA (All the services regarding publication and index of the articles are free of charge).

UNILOG-World Congress and School on Universal Logic, Vichy, France, June 16-26, 2018

The 6th UNILOG - WORLD CONGRESS AND SCHOOL ON UNIVERSAL LOGIC

will take place in Vichy, France, June 16-26, 2018

after previous editions in Montreux 2005, Xi'an 2007, Lisbon 2010, Rio

2013 and Istanbul 2015:

http://www.uni-log.org/vichy2018


Along these years UNILOG has been a leading international logical event

with the participation of many famous logicians such as Wilfrid Hodges,

Daniele Mundici, Saul Kripke, Jaakko Hintikka, Dov Gabbay, Arnon Avron,

Benedikt Löwe, David Makinson, Yde Venema, Newton da Costa, Mike Dunn,

Val Goranko, Yuri Gurevich, Janusz Czelakowski, Stephen Read, Sara Negri,

Arnold Koslow, Peter Schröder-Heister, Gila Sher, Hiroakira Ono, John Corcoran,

Hartry Field, Gerhard Jaeger, Ernest Lepore, Marcus Kracht, Melvin Fitting,

Luciano Floridi, Patrick Blackburn, Jan Wolenski, Krister Segerberg,

Dale Jacquette, Sun-Joo Shin, Jouko Väänänen, John Woods and many

more.


UNILOG is a logic event in a broad sense. It gathers people from many horizons

(philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, computer science, semiotics, cognitive science ...)

and the idea is to promote interaction between all these people.


The previous edition in Istanbul gathered more than 400 logicians from

about 50 different countries.

For the 6th edition we will follow a similar format:

- A school of logic of 5 days with 30 tutorials

- A congress of 6 days with about 30 sessions/workshops

- Award of Logic Prizes from about 10 countries

- A secret speaker (speaker whose identity is revealed only at the time

of her / its / his speech).


Vichy is a charming relaxing thermal city at the middle of France,

developed by Napoleon III in the second half of the 19th century, who in

particular created beautiful parks with species of trees from all over

the world. Vichy, in the Duchy of Bourbon, a region full of castles,

is a small city, where it is possible to go everywhere just by walking.

The event will take place at the university campus nearby the Celestins spring,

the banks of the Allier river (where it is possible to swim) and the city center.

June is a very nice time to be in Vichy with lots of animations,

including on June 21 a very lively musical day celebrating summertime.


Deadline to submit an abstract: September 15, 2017


Looking forward to seeing you in Vichy in June 2018

Postdoc Position related to NLG (and ML), Grenoble

A post-doc position related to NLG (and ML) is open in Grenoble for one year (can be extended by one other year). The position is described in the following document [in FRENCH] http://lig-membres.imag.fr/portet/PostDoc_NLP_LIG.pdf

PhD position project SEED, Erasmus MC

Scientific researcher (PhD)

A 3-year PhD position within the Generation R Study, 36 hours per week.

Project: SEED: Social In Equality and its Effects on child Development: A study of birth cohorts in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

Job description

Social inequalities in child development start early, have long term implications and are of widespread concern across Europe. The SEED project will explore the mechanisms by which inequalities affect the development of young children and the implications that they have through childhood and into work.

The program of work will utilize nationally representative cohort data to achieve two principal objectives:

· To identify the mechanisms through which chaining patterns of social inequality impact on children’s oral language development.

· To identify the implications that these early evolving social disparities have for patterns of performance at school age and beyond into adolescence and adulthood.

The project aims to influence policy and practice.

The current sub-project will investigate whether clinical sub groups of children (primarily language impaired, hearing impaired,premature) show different outcomes in different social groups, and whether social mechanisms operate in a similar way for clinical groups as they do in the population as a whole.

A more detailed description of the project isavailable on the Norface website: https://www.norface.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/DIAL-funded-projects.pdf

Call for Papers

We are inviting students of linguistics and related disciplines from BA to PhD level to present their work at the 62nd StuTS, which takes place from November 23 to 26, 2017 in Nijmegen. Feel free to present work from class projects, your bachelor’s or master’s thesis, or a project you are working on. We are also inviting language or technology related workshops from students who want to share their insights. The topics should somehow fit into the general topic of linguistics and language research and we would appreciate a wide variety of topics.

Every slot is 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes discussion) and your talk can be in German, Dutch, English, or any other language, as long as you have a sufficient knowledge of that language to present at a scientific conference. Please keep in mind that even linguists don’t speak every single language that has ever existed.

Please hand in your short abstract (max. 250 words including references) at https://anmeldung.stuts.de/stuts62_abstracts_en before October 22. The abstract should be in the language of your talk*. If you are not presenting in English, German, Dutch, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, or Limburgish, please provide a translation of your abstract to one of those languages for us to evaluate your proposal. The translation will not be published in the conference booklet. Should applications exceed the number of slots available, anyone rejected for holding a talk will get the opportunity to present their research in the form of a poster.


*If you want to present in a sign language, please hand in your abstract in the written majority language of the country and select the sign language as language of the talk. If the written language is in the list above, you do not need to send us a translation. You may, however, choose to hand in your signed abstract as a video by email. We will make it available on our website and add the link to the conference booklet.

CfP ERIS: VU journal for humanities, deadline: November 18, 2017

Call for papers!

Isn’t it a waste how your blood-sweat-and-tear soken papers end up in the bin or your professor’s box with old student papers? We should do better. ERIS: VU journal for humanities is a journal that offers humanities students a platform to get experience with scientific publishing. We also contribute to the why humanities matter movement by showing what scientists in the humanities are working on.

If you don’t want to transition straight into a boring dead end office job, it pays to have publications on your cv. Aside from useful practice, you show potential employers that you feel the urge to write and that you are a professional when it comes to publishing.

Call for Papers: Challenging the status quo

Societies rise and fall through challenges to the status quo. The status quo is the result of past innovations and revolutions, but inevitably new ideas will come to challenge it. ERIS is seeking papers and book reviews on this theme.


Examples:


-Revolutions throughout history, such as the Russian revolutions in 1917, the Iranian revolution in 1978, the industrial revolution starting in the eighteenth century and the agricultural revolution in 10.000BCE.

-Identifying the status quo within current cultures and societies.

-The technological advancements that shrinked the world and led humans to live lives more intertwined with technology.

-Speculations on the current political revolutions such as Brexit and the election of president Trump.

-The evolution of ideas, such as changes in the Zeitgeist, or changes in e.g. the concept of freedom from Ancient Greece to Georg Wilhelm Hegel.

-Shifts in demographics and migration, such as the aging of modern societies or the current refugee crisis.

-Inventions such as electricity, weaponry and the aeroplane.

-The effects of discoveries of ‘new worlds’, such as Columbus’ discovery of America or our possible forthcoming discovery of life on other planets.

-The language of breakthroughs and how we can conceptualize new dimensions of meaning.

-The value of the status quo and conservatism as opposed to the value of progress.



You can find the author guidelines on https://erisjournal.com/. The maximum word count of book reviews is 2000. Articles should be between 2000 and 5000 words. The submissions should be sent to eriscfp.fgw@vu.nl before 18-11-2017.

CfP: ICCS 2018, Edinburgh, UK, 20-22 June 2018, deadline: November 30, 2017

Call for Papers: International Conference on Conceptual Structures 2018 http://blogs.napier.ac.uk/iccs/ Conference dates: 20th - 22nd June 2018

Location: Edinburgh, UK


Co-located event:

10th International Conference on the Theory and Application of Diagrams http://www.diagrams-conference.org/2018/


******************************************************************************


The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) focus on the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge, at the crossroads of artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and related areas of computer science. The ICCS conferences evolved from a series of seven annual workshops on conceptual graphs, starting with an informal gathering hosted by John F. Sowa in 1986.

Recently, graph-based knowledge representation and reasoning (KRR) paradigms are getting more and more attention. The aim of the ICCS 2018 conference is to build upon its long standing expertise in graph-based KRR and focus on providing modelling, formal and application results of graph-based systems.


ICCS 2018 will be co-located with Diagrams 2018, held in Edinburgh, at Edinburgh Napier University. The conference welcomes contributions that address graph-based representation and reasoning paradigms (e.g. Bayesian Networks (BNs), Semantic Networks (SNs), RDF(S), Conceptual Graphs (CGs), Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), CP-Nets, GAI-Nets, Graph Databases, Diagrams, etc.) from a modelling, theoretical and application viewpoint:


-Modelling results will investigate concrete real world needs for graph-based representation, how certain use cases are of interest to the graph community, how using graphs can bring added (business) value, what kind of graph representation is needed for a given case, etc.


-Technical results will include fundamental graph theory based results for novel structures for representation, extensions of existing structures for added expressivity, conciseness, optimisation algorithms for reasoning, reasoning explanation, etc.


-Papers reporting on application experience will be expected to demonstrate the benefits of the graph-based proposed solutions in the context of the use case studied with respect to other possible solutions, where available.


******************************************************************************


The main research topics are:

-Knowledge Management,

-Knowledge Architectures,

-Reasoning under Inconsistency,

-Knowledge Representation and Uncertainty,

-Contextual Logic,

-Constraint Satisfaction,

-Decision Making,

-Argumentation,

-Ontologies,

-Semantic Web,

-Web of Data,

-Web 2.0,

-Conceptual Knowledge Acquisition,

-Data Mining,

-Text Mining,

-Natural Language Processing,

-Linguistics,

-Metaphoric, Cultural or Semiotic Considerations,

-Resource Allocation and Agreement Technologies.


******************************************************************************

Submission Deadline (Long Papers) - December 15, 2017

Submission Deadline (Short Papers) - January 10, 2018

Long Paper Author Response Period - January 25~28, 2018

Notification of Acceptance (Long Papers) - February 14, 2018

Notification of Acceptance (Short Papers) - February 28, 2018

Camera Ready Due - March 20, 2018


(All deadlines are 11:59PM GMT -12, anywhere in the world.)



------------------------------------

Long and Short Papers

------------------------------------


Long Papers


Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should

be included.


Long paper submissions 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 poster presentations 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.



Short Papers


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. Some kinds of short papers are:

- A small, focused contribution

- Work in progress

- A negative result

- An opinion piece

- An interesting application nugget


Short paper submissions 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 reviewers’ 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.


------------------------------------

Submission Guideline

------------------------------------


Note: the ACL is creating expanded publication guidelines which will be made available via the NAACL-HLT 2018 website and submission system when they are available. The ACL publication guidelines will supersede the guidelines below in case of conflict.



Submissions should be original


The content of submissions to NAACL-HLT 2018 (the ideas, the findings, the results and the words) should be original; that is, should not have been published (or be accepted for publication) in another refereed, archival form (such as a book, a journal, or a conference proceedings).


Authors may present preliminary versions of their work in other venues that arenot refereed and/or not archival (e.g. course reports, theses, non-archivalworkshops, or on preprint servers such as arXiv.org). Authors should list all such previous presentations in the submission form. This will help the area chairs if questions of originality arise.


Papers that have been or will be submitted to other venues must indicate this at submission time, and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted to NAACL-HLT 2018.


Authors submitting more than one paper to NAACL-HLT 2018 must ensure that the submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other.



Facilitate double blind review


Double blind review is a form of peer review in which the identities of authors are not provided to reviewers, and the identities of reviewers are not provided to authors. To facilitate double blind review, submissions should not identify authors or their affiliations. For example, 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) …”. Any preliminary non-archival versions of submitted papers should be listed in the submission form but not in the review version of the paper. NAACL-HLT 2018 reviewers are generally aware that authors may present preliminary versions of their work in other venues, but will not be provided the list of previous presentations from the submission form.



Follow style and format guidelines


Submissions should follow the NAACL-HLT 2018 style guidelines. Long paper submissions must follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding eight (8) pages of content. Short paper submissions must also follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and must not exceed four (4) pages.

References do not count against these limits. We strongly recommend the use of the official NAACL-HLT 2018 style templates. All submissions must in PDF format. Submissions that do not adhere to the above author guidelines may be rejected without review.



Presentation Requirement


All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at NAACL-HLT 2018 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented.


Previous presentations of the work (e.g. preprints on arXiv.org) should be indicated in a footnote that should be excluded from the review submission, but included in the final version of papers appearing in the NAACL-HLT 2018 proceedings.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for NAACL-HLT 2018 by the early registration deadline.

Long and Short Papers

------------------------------------


Long Papers


Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should

be included.


Long paper submissions 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 poster presentations 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.



Short Papers


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. Some kinds of short papers are:

- A small, focused contribution

- Work in progress

- A negative result

- An opinion piece

- An interesting application nugget


Short paper submissions 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 reviewers’ 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.

Submission Guideline

------------------------------------


Note: the ACL is creating expanded publication guidelines which will be made available via the NAACL-HLT 2018 website and submission system when they are available. The ACL publication guidelines will supersede the guidelines below in case of conflict.



Submissions should be original


The content of submissions to NAACL-HLT 2018 (the ideas, the findings, the results and the words) should be original; that is, should not have been published (or be accepted for publication) in another refereed, archival form (such as a book, a journal, or a conference proceedings).


Authors may present preliminary versions of their work in other venues that arenot refereed and/or not archival (e.g. course reports, theses, non-archivalworkshops, or on preprint servers such as arXiv.org). Authors should list all such previous presentations in the submission form. This will help the area chairs if questions of originality arise.


Papers that have been or will be submitted to other venues must indicate this at submission time, and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted to NAACL-HLT 2018.


Authors submitting more than one paper to NAACL-HLT 2018 must ensure that the submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other.



Facilitate double blind review


Double blind review is a form of peer review in which the identities of authors are not provided to reviewers, and the identities of reviewers are not provided to authors. To facilitate double blind review, submissions should not identify authors or their affiliations. For example, 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) …”. Any preliminary non-archival versions of submitted papers should be listed in the submission form but not in the review version of the paper. NAACL-HLT 2018 reviewers are generally aware that authors may present preliminary versions of their work in other venues, but will not be provided the list of previous presentations from the submission form.



Follow style and format guidelines


Submissions should follow the NAACL-HLT 2018 style guidelines. Long paper submissions must follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding eight (8) pages of content. Short paper submissions must also follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and must not exceed four (4) pages.

References do not count against these limits. We strongly recommend the use of the official NAACL-HLT 2018 style templates. All submissions must in PDF format. Submissions that do not adhere to the above author guidelines may be rejected without review.



Presentation Requirement


All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at NAACL-HLT 2018 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented.


Previous presentations of the work (e.g. preprints on arXiv.org) should be indicated in a footnote that should be excluded from the review submission, but included in the final version of papers appearing in the NAACL-HLT 2018 proceedings.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for NAACL-HLT 2018 by the early registration deadline.
