EMNLP 2010: Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing — October 9-11, 2010 — MIT, Massachusetts, USA.

Welcome to EMNLP 2010

Submission Instructions for EMNLP 2010


Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Each paper may consist of up to nine (9) pages of content and one (1) extra page for references. Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Please use the official NAACL 2010 style files. We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including paper and font size restrictions.
Note 1: The length of the paper has been extended to nine content pages to compensate for the lose of space due to the usage of Letter size.
Note 2: Unfortunately, the example PDF papers that can be found at the NAACL 2010 website are formatted in A4 size instead of Letter. Please, do not be mistaken by this error and use Letter size. You can check the size of a PDF file using any PDF editor/visualizer: it should be 8.5 x 11 inches (or, equivalently, 216 279 mm).

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...”, should 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. Separate identification information is required, and will be part of the web submission process.

Procedure and requirements

Submission/reviewing will be electronic, managed by the START system. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Previous to submitting a paper you are required to submit an abstract (by June 18, 2010). To submit the abstract, please follow this link. You will receive a reference passcode that will allow you to update the submission with the full paper (by June 25, 2010). Use this link to do that.

Abstracts and paper submissions must be uploaded onto the system by the submission deadlines. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.

Submissions presented at EMNLP should mainly contain new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must disclose this information at submission time. Please list all other meetings where the paper has been submitted at the end of the abstract field on the submission site.
