STIL will have the following collocated events: III Workshop on Portuguese Description, III Student Workshop on Information and Human Language Technology (TILic) and IV Workshop RST and the Lexical Studies.

The conference has a multidisciplinary nature and covers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to Human Language Technology, such as Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics, Information Science, among others. It aims at bringing together both academic and industrial participants working on those areas.

Paper formatting must follow the SBC guidelines available at this address:

Reviewing Process

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field.

The reviewing will be double blind and therefore papers should not display any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text. Self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005)…”, must be avoided. Instead, authors such use “Silva previously showed (Silva, 2005) …”.

Proceedings and Best Papers

All accepted papers (long and short) will be published in the online conference proceedings available at the STIL website (soon available), under an ISBN reference. Authors of best selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the following:
- Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society ( and
- a specialized journal of Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing (TBA)

Submission Policy

By submitting papers to STIL 2013, the authors agree that in case of acceptance at least one author registers to the conference and presents the paper. Furthermore, it is the conference policy that at least one of the authors of accepted papers has to register **before** the deadline for sending the camera-ready paper. Accepted papers without the respective author registration **before** the deadline will not be included in the online proceedings.

Important Dates

Deadline Submission for Long and Short Papers: March 31, 2013
Acceptance notification: May 31, 2013
Final camera-ready papers due: June 23, 2013
