Present CFP : 2022
The 2022 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP 2022) invites the submission of long and short papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research on empirical methods for Natural Language Processing. 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.
EMNLP 2022 will follow EMNLP 2021 and go with a hybrid format with respect to ARR. This means that while EMNLP will accept ARR-reviewed papers, it will also accept submissions directly to EMNLP through the START system. However, in order to keep the review load on the community as a whole manageable, we need to ask authors to decide up-front if they want to be reviewed through ARR or EMNLP. For detailed submission information, please refer to our webpage. Here we highlight changes:
Anonymity period begins: May 24, 2022
Abstract deadline for START direct submissions: June 17, 2022
Direct paper submission deadline (long & short papers): June 24, 2022
Submission deadline for ARR papers (with meta review): July 24, 2022
Author response period: Aug 23 – Aug 29, 2022
Notification of acceptance (long & short papers): Oct 6, 2022
Camera-ready papers due (long & short papers): Oct 21, 2022
Workshops & Tutorials: December 7-8, 2022
Conference: December 9-11, 2022
All deadlines are 11.59 pm UTC -12h (“anywhere on Earth”).
Mandatory Discussion of Limitations
We believe that it is also important to discuss the limitations of your work, in addition to its strengths. EMNLP 2022 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 limitation section will be automatically rejected without review.
ARR-reviewed papers that did not include a “Limitations” section in their prior submission, should submit a PDF with such a section together with their EMNLP 2022 submission.
EMNLP 2022 Theme Track: “Open questions, major obstacles, and unresolved issues in NLP”
Following the success of previous major NLP conferences theme tracks, we are happy to announce that EMNLP 2022 will have a new theme with the goal of reflecting and stimulating discussion about the state of the field, with a forward looking focus of exposing what is yet to be done, and how to get there: “Open questions, major obstacles, and unresolved issues in NLP.” While we believe this theme naturally invites position papers, we especially encourage thought-provoking contributions that support their arguments with empirical evidence, in the tradition of EMNLP.
