Best Paper Award: As in recent CoNLL conferences, a Best Paper Award will be given to the authors of the highest quality paper. The most important aspects in judging the quality of a paper will be: originality, innovativeness, relevance, and impact of the presented research.

Best Paper Award for Research Inspired by Human Language Learning and Processing: We will also continue giving a special award for the Best Paper Award for Research Inspired by Human Language Learning and Processing.

Submission Information

- Paper Submissions
CoNLL 2019 long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Each long paper submission consists of a paper of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references. Final versions of long papers will be given one additional page (up to nine pages with unlimited pages for references) so that reviewers comments can be taken into account.
