Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original,

replicability. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three


committee members.

The long paper submission deadline is:

For electronic submission of long papers, please use:

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished

work. Please

note that a short paper is not a shortened long paper. Instead, short

papers should have a point that can be made in a few pages, for

example: a

small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an

opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Each short paper

submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee

For electronic submission of short papers, please use:

Submissions must be in PDF, and must conform to the official style

guidelines for EACL 2017. We strongly recommend the use of EACL

LaTeX style

files. These are available on the conference website.

As the reviewing will be blind, papers must not include author

names and

affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author

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




Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or

publications must indicate this at submission time, and must be


from the other venues if accepted by EACL 2017. Authors of papers


for presentation at EACL 2017 must notify the program chairs by the

camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented.

We will

not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap

significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have


published elsewhere.

Papers that have only appeared on preprint servers such as

arXiv.org, or in

ACL-related workshops that do not have published proceedings in

the ACL

Anthology, do not count as previously published. Such papers may


submitted to EACL 2017. Note that the version submitted for review

must be

suitably anonymized, and should not contain references to the prior

non-archival version.

Authors submitting more than one paper to EACL 2017 must ensure


submissions do not overlap significantly ()25%) with each other in


or results.
