EMNLP 2008: conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing — October 25-27, 2008 — Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Welcome to EMNLP 2008

Call for Papers for EMNLP 2008

SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics' special interest group on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP, invites submissions to EMNLP 2008. The conference will be held on October 25-27, 2008, at the Hilton Prince Kuhio, Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, immediately following AMTA-2008 and the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation.

We are interested in papers from academia, government, and industry on all areas of traditional interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned fields, including but not limited to:

Submissions

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Each paper may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content and one (1) extra page for references. Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Please use the official ACL 2008 style files. We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including 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. To submit a paper, please follow this link.

A PDF file of the paper must be uploaded onto the system by the submission deadline. 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.
