A paper accepted for presentation at INLG 2016 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Submission to other conferences should be clearly indicated on the paper.
INLG 2016 has three submission categories, long and short papers, and demos:
Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research results and must not exceed eight (8) pages of content, with up to two additional pages for references. These will be orally presented.
Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research effort and must not exceed four (4) pages, including references. These may be presented orally or as posters.
Demo papers should be no more than two (2) pages in length, including references, and should describe implemented systems which are of relevance to the NLG community. Demo papers will be included in the proceedings. Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo of their system during INLG 2016.
Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. NAACL 2016 offers both LaTeX style files and Microsoft Word templates. Details on how to submit your papers will be provided shortly.
