SUBMISSIONS

NoDaLiDa addresses all aspects of natural language processing, speech recognition and synthesis and computational linguistics, including work in closely-related neighboring disciplines (such as, for example, machine learning, linguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied to bear relevance to speech and language technologies.

We invite paper submissions of three types:

  • regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research, including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate;
  • short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress, negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces; and
  • demonstration papers on software or resource demonstrations, e.g. of systems, interfaces, infrastructures, data collections, or annotations.

We particularly encourage the submission of papers on completed or on-going work, where the first author is a Master or PhD student. This should be indicated at submission time by adding the keyword STUDENTS.

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in the NoDaLiDa 2019 proceedings, which are published as part of the NEALT Proceedings Series by Linköping University Electronic Press and in the ACL Anthology.

SUBMISSION FORMATS

All submissions must follow the NoDaLiDa 2019 style files, which are available for LaTeX (preferred) and MS Word and can be retrieved from the following address:

http://www.nodalida2019.org/authorkit.zip

Submissions of regular (and short) papers must be anonymous, i.e. not reveal author(s) on the title page or through self-references. The anonymization of submissions for demo papers is optional. If authors choose to remain anonymous, it is their responsibility to take every measure to conceal potentially identifying information.

Papers must be submitted digitally, in PDF, and uploaded through the on-line conference system. Paper submissions that violate either of these requirements will be returned without review.

The page limits for submissions are: up to eight pages for regular papers, and up to four pages for short papers and demo papers. For all three submission types, these page limits do not include additional pages with bibliographic references.

For the camera-ready paper, regular papers can be up to 9 pages. Short papers and demo papers: up to 5 pages. For all three submission types, these page limits do not include additional pages with bibliographic references.

DOUBLE SUBMISSION and PRE-PUBLICATION

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other venues must indicate this at submission time in the Easychair submission system (please add it in the keywords field), and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted to NoDALiDa 2019. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at NoDALiDa 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 the papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere.

NoDaLiDA follows the ACL policy an anonymization and anonymity period.

The anonymity period for NoDaLiDa 2019 is from April 30, 2019.

SUBMISSION MANAGEMENT

Submissions to the conference must be uploaded electronically, obeying the above requirements and no later than (end of day, anywhere in the world):
