CoNLL 2020 : 24th SIGNLL Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning
Call For Papers
CoNLL 2020 -- Call for Papers
CoNLL is a yearly conference organized by SIGNLL (ACL's Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning). This year, CoNLL will be colocated with EMNLP 2020, and like EMNLP will be a fully virtual conference.
- Emmanuel Dupoux (EHESS and Ecole Normale Supérieur, Paris, France)
- Kristina Tautanova (Google, Seattle, USA)
SIGNLL invites submissions to the 24th Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning (CoNLL 2020). The main focus of CoNLL is on theoretically, cognitively and scientifically motivated approaches to computational linguistics, rather than on work driven by particular engineering applications. Such approaches include:
Computational learning theory and other techniques for theoretical analysis of machine learning models for NLP
Models of first, second and bilingual language acquisition by humans
Models of language evolution and change
Computational simulation and analysis of findings from psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experiments
Analysis and interpretation of NLP models, using methods inspired by cognitive science or linguistics or other methods
Data resources, techniques and tools for scientifically-oriented research in computational linguistics
Connections between computational models and formal languages or linguistic theories
Linguistic typology and other multilingual work
We welcome work targeting any aspect of language, including:
Speech and phonology
Lexical, compositional and discourse semantics
Dialogue and interactive language use
Multimodal and grounded language learning
Submitted papers must be anonymous and use the EMNLP 2020 template. Submitted papers may consist of up to 8 pages of content plus unlimited space for references. Authors of accepted papers will have an additional page to address reviewers’ comments in the camera-ready version (9 pages of content in total, excluding references). Anonymized supplementary materials are allowed as an optional PDF appendix, in line with EMNLP 2020 guidelines. Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system.
CoNLL adheres to the ACL anonymity policy, as described in the EMNLP 2020 Call for Papers. Briefly, manuscripts submitted to CoNLL cannot be posted to preprint websites such as arXiv or advertised on social media after June 17.
Multiple submission policy
CoNLL 2020 will not accept papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications. Papers submitted elsewhere as well as papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere will be rejected. Authors submitting more than one paper to CoNLL 2020 must ensure that the submissions do not overlap significantly ()25%) with each other in content or results.
Anonymity period starts: June 17, 2020
Paper submission deadline: July 17, 2020
Notification of acceptance and end of anonymity period: September 18, 2020
Camera-ready due: October 9, 2020
Conference: November 19-20, 2020 (right after EMNLP 2020)
All deadlines are at 11:59pm UTC-12h ("anywhere on earth").
