Short paper submissions are now closed.


Note that this CFP has been significantly revised as of 02/21/2003. Please read it carefully.

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; Short papers are restricted to 3 pages in length. Only two reviews per submission are guaranteed. Two volumes of proceedings will be produced; one for full papers and a another for short papers and demonstration descriptions.

Short papers must be submitted in camera-ready format; see www.hlt-naacl03.org/format.html. Short papers that are not in PDF or are incorrectly formatted may be rejected on that basis.

Requirements: Submissions must describe original, completed, unpublished work, and include concrete evaluation results when appropriate. See full paper submission informaton for topics of interest. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information (see submission format); in the event of multiple acceptances, authors are requested to immediately notify the program chair and choose which meeting to present and publish the work at as soon as possible -- HLT-NAACL 2003 cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Format: Submissions must be camera-ready, electronic and in PDF. Submissions should follow the HLT-NAACL'03 formatting guidelines and be submitted in camera-ready format. Short papers that are not in PDF or are incorrectly formatted may be rejected on that basis.

Authors are strongly encouraged to use the LaTeX style files or MSWord equivalents available on the website.

Reviewing: Reviewing will not be blind. Because we need camera-ready copy, authors must include their identifying information on the paper. This is to accommodate the late-breaking format; we need time to review the papers and get the accepted papers to the printer in time.

Procedure: All interactions will be done via the website and email.

Note that notification date for acceptance and rejection has been changed to April 16, 2003.

A PDF file of the paper must be uploaded onto the system by the date of the announced deadline. In addition, information about each paper must be entered on the website. This information will include:

  • Paper title
  • Authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses
  • Contact author
  • A short list of keywords (selected from a predefined list)
  • Abstract (no more than 500 words)
  • Whether or not the paper is under consideration for other conferences

Authors who for some reason cannot submit a PDF file electronically should contact the program chairs in advance of the due date to work out alternate arrangements.
