 Blind Review Instructions

The review policy for ACLing is double blind so papers 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 (1991) previously showed …”. Acknowledgments of funding or assistance should be omitted in the initial submission. Submissions should not contain pointers to supplemental information on the web. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements might be rejected without review. Separate author identification information is required as part of the online submission process through EasyChair.

Multiple Submission Policies

We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere. Authors submitting more than one paper to ACLing 2017 must ensure that submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other in content or results.

Presentation requirement

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for ACLing 2017. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as a poster (at the discretion of the program chairs based on nature rather than the quality of the work). There will be no distinction in the proceedings between papers presented orally or as posters.
