Information for Authors

We invite papers on original, unpublished work in the topic areas of the workshop. In addition to long papers, we will consider short papers and system descriptions (demos). We also welcome position papers.

* Long papers, presenting completed work, may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, with two (2) additional pages of references; final camera-ready versions of accepted long papers will be given one additional page of content (up to 9 pages) so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.

* A short paper / demo can present work in progress, or the description of a system, and may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, with one (1) additional page of references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given five (5) content pages in the proceedings.

* A position paper — clearly marked as such — should not exceed six (6) pages including references.

All submissions are to use the ACL stylesheets (for LaTeX, MS Word or Overleaf) posted at Papers should be submitted electronically, in PDF, via the LaTeCH-CLfL2019 submission website

Reviewing will be double-blind. Please do not include the authors’ names and affiliations, or any references to Web sites, project names, acknowledgements and so on — anything that immediately reveals the authors’ identity. Self-references should be kept to a reasonable minimum, and anonymous citations cannot be used.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, and later available in the ACL Anthology.


NAACL 2019 cares about diversity and inclusion. This also covers assistance with language for those who are not native English speakers, or who find writing or proofreading difficult. Grammarly is a program that can check one’s English writing and suggest improvements. At NAACL’s request, the company is giving authors free premium access for one month. To avail yourself of this opportunity, please fill out the form at — within one day you should receive an email with the premium access code and further instructions. We thank Grammarly for generously donating this service.

(LaTeCH-CLfL is posting this notice on February 28, so the offer can only help with the final submission. Sorry about that, but a detailed announcement reached us just yesterday.)
