ACL 2013


The 51st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics
Sofia, Bulgaria, August 4-9

The Association for Computational Linguistics is pleased to announce
that its 2013 Annual Meeting will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria,
on August 4th to 9th.

The conference invites the submission of long and short papers on
substantial, original, and unpublished research in all aspects of
automated language processing, as discussed below. As already done last
year, ACL 2013 will accept papers accompanied by the resource (software
or data) described in the paper. In addition to the regular review of
the research quality of the paper, these papers will also be reviewed
for the quality of the resource that is being made available. Papers
that are submitted with accompanying software/data will receive
additional credit toward the overall evaluation score, and acceptance or
rejection decision will be made based on the quality of both the
research and the software/data component. In addition, this year there
will be an important novelty: some of the presentations at the
conference will be of papers accepted for the new Transactions of the
ACL journal (


Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the
following areas (in alphabetical order):

Cognitive modelling of language processing and psycholinguistics
Dialogue and interactive systems
Discourse, coreference and pragmatics
Evaluation methods
Information retrieval
Language resources
Lexical semantics and ontologies
Low resource language processing
Machine translation: methods, applications and evaluation
Multilinguality in NLP
NLP applications
NLP and creativity
NLP for the languages of Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans
NLP for the Web and social media
Question answering
Sentiment analysis, opinion mining and text classification
Spoken language processing
Statistical and Machine Learning methods in NLP
Summarization and generation
Syntax and parsing
Tagging and chunking
Text mining and information extraction
Word segmentation


Long papers: ACL 2013 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completed and unpublished work.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 may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus two extra
pages for references; final versions should take into account reviewers'
comments. Papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by
the program committee.  Decisions on presentation format 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 deadline is:

           Wednesday February 20th, 2013

Short papers: ACL 2013 also solicits short papers. Short paper
submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Characteristics
of short papers include:

        - A small, focused contribution
        - Work in progress
        - A negative result
        - An opinion piece
        - An interesting application nugget

Short papers will be presented in one or more oral or poster sessions,
and will be given four (4) pages including references in the
proceedings. 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 posters. Each short paper
submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee members.

The deadline for short papers is

        Sunday April 14th, 2013

Electronic Submission:

Submission is electronic, using the Softconf submission software (URL to
be announced in subsequent versions of this call)


Long paper submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL 2013
proceedings without exceeding eight (8) pages of content plus two extra
pages for references. Short paper submissions should also follow the
two- column format of ACL 2013 proceedings, and should not exceed four
(4) pages including references. We strongly recommend the use of ACL
LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files tailored for this year's
conference. Submissions must conform to the official style guidelines,
which are contained in the style files, and they must be in PDF.

As the reviewing will be blind, papers must not include authors' names
and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's
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. In addition, please do not post your
submissions on the web until after the review process is complete.

Multiple-submission policy:

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications must indicate this at submission time. Authors of papers
accepted for presentation at ACL 2013 must notify the program chairs by

       April 21st

as to whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be
presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. 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

Authors submitting more than one paper to ACL must ensure that
submissions do not overlap significantly (> 50%) with each other in
content or results.
