- Latent-variable and representation learning for language
- Multi-modal learning for distributional representations
- Neural networks and deep learning in NLP
- The role of syntax in compositional models
- Spectral learning and the method of moments in NLP
- Language embeddings and their applications

Important Dates

- Deadline for submission: 8 May 2016
- Notification of acceptance: 5 June 2016
- Deadline for camera-ready version: 22 June 2016
- Early registration deadline (ACL'16): To be announced.

Submissions

Authors should submit a full paper of up to 8 pages in electronic, PDF format, with up to 2 additional pages for references. The reported research should be substantially original. Accepted papers will be presented as posters. Selected papers may also be presented orally at the discretion of the committee.

All submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the ACL 2016 formatting requirements. See the ACL 2016 Call For Papers for reference: http://acl2016.org/index.php?article_id=9.

Reviewing will be double-blind, and thus no author information should be included in the papers; self-reference that identifies the authors should be avoided or anonymized.

Submissions must be made through the Softconf website set up for this workshop: https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/repl4nlp2016/. Style files and other information about paper formatting requirements will be made available on the conference website, http://acl2016.org.

Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, where no distinction will be made on the basis of length or mode of presentation.
