Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at EACL 2012 cannot be presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the submission page. If the paper is accepted by both EACL 2012 and another meeting or publication, it must be withdrawn from one of them. Furthermore, its authors must notify the program chairs, within a week of receiving the EACL 2012 acceptance notification, whether or not they have chosen EACL 2012 for presentation of their work.

Review and Selection:

Reviewing of papers will be double-blind, and all submissions will receive three independent reviews. Final decisions on the program will be made by the Program Committee, consisting of the Program Co-Chairs and Area Chairs. Submissions will be assessed with respect to appropriateness, clarity, soundness/correctness, meaningful comparison, originality/innovativeness, and impact of ideas or results.

Publication and Presentation:

All papers that are accepted will be published in the proceedings of the conference, and will be presented orally or as a poster presentation as determined by the program committee. The decisions as to which papers will be presented orally and which as poster presentations will be based on the nature rather than on the quality of the work.

Authors will be also asked on submission to state their preferred mode of presentation.

EACL 2012 will continue aiming to give poster presentations a high status. There will be no distinction in the conference proceedings between papers that are assigned different presentation modes.

Submission Information:

All submissions must be submitted electronically as PDF and must follow the two-column format of EACL proceedings. Authors are strongly recommended to use the style files available on the conference web site. Papers may consist of up to nine (9) pages of content and any number of additional pages containing references only.

EACL 2012 will also accept papers accompanied by the resource(s) (software or data) described in the paper. In addition to the regular review of the research quality of the paper, these papers will also be reviewed for the quality of the resource that is being made available. Acceptance or rejection decision will be made based on the quality of both the research and the software/data component.

As reviewing will be double-blind, the paper 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)..'. Authors should not use anonymous citations and should not include any acknowledgments. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

The deadline for submission is 11:59pm Samoa Time (UTC/GMT -11 hours) on November 4, 2011. Additional instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the conference website at http://eacl2012.org

Mentoring Service:

EACL is providing a mentoring (coaching) service for authors from regions of the world where English is less emphasized as a language of scientific exchange. Many authors from these regions, although able to read the scientific literature in English, have little or no experience in writing papers in English for conferences such as the E/ACL meetings. If you would like to take advantage of the service, please upload your paper in PDF format by September 23, 2011 using the paper submission software for the mentoring service which will be available at the conference website.
