Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research 
contributions on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but 
not limited to: pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax and the lexicon; 
phonetics, phonology and morphology; interpreting and generating spoken and 
written language; linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of

Submissions will be hardcopy. Submissions must use the appropriate ACL 
latex style or Microsoft Word style (links to which will be available from 
the conference web page ). Submissions should follow the 
two-column format of ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, 
including references. If you cannot use the ACL-standard styles directly, 
a description of the required format will be available on the conference 
web page. If you cannot access the conference web page or have other 
questions about submissions, send email to

Reviewing will be blind. Thus, a separate identification page is 
required. The identification page should include the following:

 * Paper ID number (see SUBMISSION PROCEDURE below).
 * Title.
 * Authors' names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.
 * Keywords: Up to 5 keywords specifying subject area.
 * Under consideration for other conferences? If yes, please list.
 * Abstract: Short (no more than 5 lines) summary.

Authors' names and affiliations should be omitted from the paper 
itself. 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 these requirements are subject to being 
rejected without review.


1) Submission notification: You must submit a notification of submission 
by filling out a form on the conference web page by November 6, 2000. This will 
return to you an email with a paper ID number that should be included 
(printed or handwritten) on the first page of the paper and on the 
identification page. Also, please use it on all correspondence with the 
program committee chair. The form will be available on the web after 
October 1, 2000.
