Call for Papers

We welcome submissions of long and short papers, posters, and demonstrations relating to the special theme or any aspect of linguistic annotation, including:

We also invite proposals for a shared task to be hosted at LAW 2018. These should be submitted as short papers (up to 4 pages). The program will include a panel discussion of potential shared tasks.

Submissions and Reviewing

Submissions should report original and unpublished research on topics of interest to the workshop. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.

A paper accepted for presentation at the workshop must not be or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings.

The maximum length is eight (8) pages of content for long papers and four (4) pages of content for short papers, posters, and demonstrations. References do not count toward the page limit.

Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations or self-references that reveal the authors’ identity--e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ..." should be replaced with citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Authors of papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information to the workshop co-chairs ( Authors of accepted papers must notify the program chairs within 10 days of acceptance if the paper is withdrawn for any reason.

More precise intructions on submission, including style files and submission web site, will be posted later.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the program co-chairs.
