SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original,
completed and
unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and
analysis
should be included. Submissions will be judged on appropriateness,
clarity,
originality/innovativeness, correctness/soundness, meaningful
comparison,
thoroughness, significance, contributions to research resources, and
replicability. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three
program
committee members.

Long papers must follow the two-column format of EACL 2017 (see
below) and
may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited
references.
Final versions of long papers will be given one additional page of
content
(up to 9 pages) so that reviewers? comments can be taken into
account.

Long papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by
the
program committee. The decisions as to which papers will be
presented
orally and which as posters will be based on the nature rather than
the
quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings
between long papers presented orally and as posters.

The long paper submission deadline is:

- Friday, 30 September 2016, 23:59 GMT

For electronic submission of long papers, please use:

- https://www.softconf.com/eacl2017/main

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished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, for
example: a
small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an
opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Each short paper
submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee
members.

Short papers must follow the two-column format of EACL 2014 (see
below).
They may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, plus unlimited
references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given five (5)
content
pages in the proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use this
additional
page to address reviewer comments in their final versions.

Short papers will be presented in one or more oral or poster
sessions.
While short papers will be distinguished from long papers in the
proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between
short
papers presented orally and as posters.

The deadline for submission of short papers is:

- Friday, 16 December 2016, 23:59 GMT

For electronic submission of short papers, please use:

- https://www.softconf.com/eacl2017/shortpapers

SUBMISSION FORMAT

Submissions must be in PDF, and must conform to the official style
guidelines for EACL 2017. We strongly recommend the use of EACL
LaTeX style
files. These are available on the conference website.

As the reviewing will be blind, papers must not include author
names and
affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author
identity, e.g.,

We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...

must be avoided.
Instead, use citations such as

Smith previously showed (Smith,1991) ...

Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected
without
review.

MULTIPLE SUBMISSION POLICY

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications must indicate this at submission time, and must be
withdrawn
from the other venues if accepted by EACL 2017. Authors of papers
accepted
for presentation at EACL 2017 must notify the program chairs by the
camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented.
We will
not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap
significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have
been)
published elsewhere.

Papers that have only appeared on preprint servers such as
arXiv.org, or in
ACL-related workshops that do not have published proceedings in
the ACL
Anthology, do not count as previously published. Such papers may
be
submitted to EACL 2017. Note that the version submitted for review
must be
suitably anonymized, and should not contain references to the prior
non-archival version.

Authors submitting more than one paper to EACL 2017 must ensure
that
submissions do not overlap significantly ()25%) with each other in
content
or results.
