Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL 2011 proceedings. Each paper may consist of up to nine (9) pages of content, and any number of additional pages with references only. Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Please use the official ACL 2011 style files. We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including letter size and font size restrictions.
As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...”, should 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. Separate identification information is required, and will be part of the web submission process.
Submission/reviewing will be electronic, managed by the START system. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions must be uploaded onto the system by the submission deadlines. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
Submissions presented at EMNLP should mainly contain new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must disclose this information at submission time. Please list all other meetings where the paper has been submitted at the end of the abstract field on the submission site.
