===== SUBMISSION FORMAT
Submissions will be hardcopy. Submissions must use the appropriate ACL
latex style or Microsoft Word style (links to which will be available from
the conference web page
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~ref/naacl2001.html). Submissions should follow the
two-column format of ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages,
including references. If you cannot use the ACL-standard styles directly,
a description of the required format will be available on the conference
web page. If you cannot access the conference web page or have other
questions about submissions, send email to naaclpgm at isi.edu.
Reviewing will be blind. Thus, a separate identification page is
required. The identification page should include the following:
* Paper ID number (see SUBMISSION PROCEDURE below).
* Authors' names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.
* Keywords: Up to 5 keywords specifying subject area.
* Under consideration for other conferences? If yes, please list.
* Abstract: Short (no more than 5 lines) summary.
Authors' names and affiliations should be omitted from the paper
itself. 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 are subject to being
rejected without review.
