Authors are required to provide a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their papers. The submission must be electronic. The 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 (8) pages for full papers and four (4) pages for short and demo 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 without review.

Up to two (2) additional pages may be purchased from ACL at the price of $250 per page; please contact the publication chairs above for more information about this option.

Note also that as reviewing will be blind, the 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 review.
