Submission Instructions

We invite authors to submit the following 3 types of papers on topics listed above to the workshop:

  • Full papers (maximum 8 content pages + 2 pages for references) that report solid and completed work with new experiments, findings and/or approaches.
  • Short papers (maximum 4 content pages + 2 pages for references) that report
    • a small, focused contribution
    • work in progress
    • a negative result
    • an interesting application nugget
  • Opinion papers (2-8 content pages + 2 pages for references) that provide the authors' opinions/thoughts on semantics-driven machine translation from the following view angles (but not limited to)
    • a critical perspective
    • future directions
    • summary of past work
    • comments on current work

Submitted papers should be substantially original and unpublished. The reviewing process will be double-blind. Therefore papers must not include authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the authors' 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.

Accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters. The decision as to which papers will be presented orally and which as posters will be made by the program committee based on the nature rather than on the quality of the work.

Multiple Submission Policy: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications are acceptable, but authors must indicate this information at submission time. If accepted, authors must notify the organizers ( as to whether the paper will be presented at the workshop or elsewhere.

Submission format: All submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the official NAACL 2016 style guidelines.
