A paper accepted for presentation at INLG 2014 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Submission to other conferences should be clearly indicated on the paper.

Paper Categories:

INLG 2014 has three submission categories, long and short papers, and demos:

- Long papers are appropriate for presenting substantial research results and must not exceed eight (8) pages of content, with up to two additional pages for references. These will be orally presented.
- Short papers are appropriate for presenting an ongoing research effort and must not exceed four (4) pages, including references. These may be presented orally or as posters.
- Demo papers should be no more than two (2) pages in length, including references, and should describe implemented systems which are of relevance to the NLG community. Demo papers will be included in the proceedings. Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo of their system during INLG 2014.

Submission Instructions:

The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Use of the ACL 2014 style files is strongly recommended. Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors within the paper. Further submission instructions will be available at: http://inlg2014.wordpress.com/submission/.
