INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
PROVISIONAL ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Please bear in mind that in order to streamline the reviewing procedure, we would like authors to submit a provisional title along with a brief abstract (approx. 150 words) by 15 March 2024 in pdf format. Abstrasts should be anonymous. Abstract submission must be made via the CLIB 2024 login page.
PAPER TYPES AND FORMAT
Long papers must describe substantial, original, completed, and unpublished work. Where appropriate, authors should include concrete evaluation and analysis, analysis of the impact of theories on technologies, and/or contributions of technologies to the advancement of theory. In-depth analysis and discussion of errors made in the experiments described and the influence of linguistically-motivated features on the performance of the methods and/or models applied will receive additional credit toward the overall evaluation score.
Long papers may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited pages of references and appendices in the accepted format. Final versions will be given one additional page of content (up to nine (9) pages), so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.
Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work dealing with a small, focused contribution that may be presented with sufficient level of detail within the allotted space.
Short papers may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, plus unlimited pages of references and appendices. Final versions of short papers will be given one additional page of content (up to five (5) pages), so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.
CLIB 2024 also solicits submissions presenting project reports, new data resources, system demonstrations, position papers.
A Special Session on Wordnets, Framenets and Ontologies will take place at CLIB 2024. The Special Session aims at bringing together researchers interested in the principles, theory, practice and applications of wordnets, ontologies, related linguistic resources and their interoperability and seeks to establish a dedicated community and to foster joint initiatives in this particular field.
CLIB 2024 Guidelines for anonymised submission: PDF (updated November 2023)
While papers should emphasise completed or well-advanced ongoing research rather than intended work, submissions describing a small, focused contribution or work in progress showing promising results are also invited. The papers should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.
The submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, meaningful comparison, thoroughness, contributions to research resources, relevance to the conference and interest to the attendees.
Papers shall be submitted in English anonymously.
Reviewing will be evaluated using a double-blind reviewing procedure. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers.
The original submissions and any supplementary materials should be appropriately anonymised: they must not include authors’ names and affiliations, or the acknowledgments section. Self-references revealing the authors’ identities must be avoided. For example, instead of “We previously showed (XYZ, 2023) …” please use “XYZ previously showed (XYZ, 2023) …”.
The submissions should avoid links to non-anonymised repositories: the code should be either submitted as supplementary material, or as a link to an anonymised repository. Authors should also ensure that identifying meta-information is removed from all the files submitted for review. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.
At the time of submission authors will be required to mark the type of paper (long or short) and the preferred form of presentation (oral or poster). Note that the Programme Committee will have the final decision on the form of presentation. Authors will also have to mark in the required field if the paper is submitted to the Special Session on Wordnets, Framenets and Ontologies.
All accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
Submission and reviewing is electronic, using the EasyChair conference management system through the CLIB 2024 login page. Submissions must be uploaded on the EasyChair system by the submission deadline: 15 April 2024 (23:59 UTC/GMT+2).
Submissions after that time will not be reviewed.
