proceedings will be printed on US-Letter paper. Manuscripts must
be in two-column format of ACL proceedings (11pt Times-Roman font).
Exceptions to the two-column format include the title, authors'
names and complete addresses, which must be centered at the top
of the first page, and any full-width figures or tables.
For the main conference, the maximum length of a manuscript is eight

papers, printed single-sided. Authors are strongly encouraged to
use the LaTeX style files or MSWord
equivalents available below -- these formats will ease the transition
to the proceedings version.
All illustrations, references, and appendices must be accommodated
within these page limits, observing the formatting instructions
given in the present document. Papers that do not conform to the
specified length and formatting requirements are subject to be rejected

price of $250 per page; please contact the publication chairs above
for more information about this option.

paper submissions 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 the requirements above are subject to be rejected without
