Short (Late-Breaking) Papers at HLT-NAACL provide a venue for authors to present
late-breaking results. Submitted Short Papers will be carefully
evaluated on the basis of originality, significance, technical
soundness, and clarity of exposition. Short Papers may be accepted
for presentation in either an oral session or a poster session
(the decision will be made by the Program Committee).
Short papers and posters are due on March 7, 2003 at 5pm your local time.
Short Papers may be accepted for oral presentation OR for presentation
in a poster session (determined by the Program Committee); The
deadlines are later for short papers and posters than for full papers;
