summary abstract (up to 100 words) is required for each submission.

Full paper: A 20-minute talk followed by 10 minutes for questions and
discussion. Submissions should present either complete research, or research
in progress where at least some substantial results have been achieved. Work
in progress which has yet to produce results can instead be submitted as a
poster abstract. We request extended abstracts (750-1500 words, excluding the
word count for references). The extended abstracts will be published
electronically shortly in advance of the conference.

Posters: Can present either results of completed research or work in progress.
Abstracts should be 250-500 words, excluding the word count for references. We
especially welcome poster abstracts that (a) report on innovative research
that is in its earliest phases, or (b) report on new software or corpus data

Panels: Offer an opportunity to group related papers together to allow
extended discussions. Abstracts of 1500 words (excluding the word count for
references) are to be submitted on behalf of all speakers, with an
introduction specifying the relationship between the topics before details on
individual presentations (including names and affiliations of all speakers)
are given. Abstracts are to be submitted by the panel convenor(s). Panels will
be allocated 1 hour 40 minutes.

For the pre-conference workshop day, propose either a half-day or a full-day
event. Proposals should be 1500 words for a half-day or 3000 words for a
full-day, excluding word count for references. They should also provide
details on whether the workshop needs a computer lab or any other technical
requirements. Pre-conference proposals should be sent directly to Dr Nicholas
