First Call for Papers: EACL 2024

The 18th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2024) invites the submission of long and short papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research on Natural Language Processing. EACL 2024 will be held in Malta on 17th-22nd March 2024, with online attendance possible.

Papers must be submitted to EACL 2024 via the ACL Rolling Review (ARR) system. As in recent years, some of the presentations at the conference will be for papers accepted by the Transactions of the ACL (TACL) and Computational Linguistics (CL) journals.

Paper Submission Information

Topics of Interest

EACL 2024 has the goal of a broad technical program. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following areas (in alphabetical order):

Computational Social Science and Cultural Analytics

Dialogue and Interactive Systems

Discourse and Pragmatics

Efficient/Low-resource methods in NLP

Ethics and NLP

Generation

Information Retrieval and Text Mining

Information Extraction

Interpretability and Model Analysis in NLP

Language Grounding to Vision, Robotics and Beyond

Linguistic Theories, Cognitive Modeling and Psycholinguistics

Machine Learning for NLP

Machine Translation

Multilinguality and Language Diversity

NLP Applications

Phonology, Morphology, and Word Segmentation

Question Answering

Resources and Evaluation

Semantics: Lexical

Semantics: Sentence-level Semantics, Textual Inference and other areas

Sentiment Analysis, Stylistic Analysis and Argument Mining

Speech and Multimodality

Summarization

Syntax: Tagging, Chunking and Parsing

Long Papers

Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Long papers may consist of up to 8 pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references and appendices. Upon acceptance, long papers will be given one additional page of content (i.e. up to 9 pages) in the proceedings so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.
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Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work.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. Short papers may consist of up to 4 pages of content, plus unlimited references and appendices. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given one additional page of content (i.e. up to 5 pages) in the proceedings so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.
Findings of the ACL

Papers submitted to EACL 2024, but not selected for the main conference, will also automatically be considered for publication in the Findings of the Association of Computational Linguistics. Acceptance notifications for the main track and Findings will come out simultaneously.
Presentation Mode

Long and short papers will be presented orally or as posters, as determined by the programme committee based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. While short papers will be distinguished from long papers in the proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between papers presented orally and as posters. Papers accepted to the Findings of the ACL may present a poster.
Presentation Requirements

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference—either online or in-person—in order to appear in the proceedings. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at EACL 2024 must notify the program chairs by the withdrawal deadline if they wish to withdraw the paper. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for EACL 2024 by the early registration deadline.
Paper Submission and Anonymity

Following standard ACL and ARR policy, submitted papers must be prepared for two-way anonymized review, and no deanonymized preprint may be posted in the month prior to submission. Please see the ARR CfP for more detail.
Policies on Authorship, Citation and Ethics

EACL 2024 follows the ARR policies on authorship, citation and comparison and ethics - please see the ARR CfP.
Multiple Submission Policy

EACL 2024 follows the ARR policy on multiple submission: we will not consider any paper that is under review in a journal or another conference at the time of submission, and submitted papers must not be submitted elsewhere during the review period. See the ARR CfP for more detail. Please note that the EACL 2024 submission deadline is currently timed to come after EMNLP 2023 decisions have been announced, and that EACL 2024 acceptance decisions will be announced before the likely submission deadline for ACL 2024, although after that for NAACL 2024.
Mandatory Discussion of Limitations

We believe that it is also important to discuss the limitations of your work, in addition to its strengths. Following EACL 2023, EACL 2024 requires all papers to have a clear discussion of limitations, in a dedicated section titled “Limitations”. This section will appear at the end of the paper, after the discussion/conclusions section and before the references, and will not count towards the page limit. Papers without a limitations section will be automatically rejected without review. Papers resubmitted from previous ARR review rounds that did not include a limitations section must ensure that such a section is included in the EACL 2024 version.

While we are open to different types of limitations, just mentioning that a set of results have been shown for English only probably does not reflect what we expect. Mentioning that the method works mostly for languages with limited morphology, like English, is a much better alternative. In addition, limitations such as low scalability to long text, the requirement of large GPU resources, or other things that inspire further investigation are welcome.
