All papers accepted for long oral presentation will be published in a proceedings volume edited by Springer in its LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series. Poster session papers will be published separately in a special issue of a journal. Submissions are to be original research papers, written in English, not published and not submitted for review elsewhere. Submissions are received electronically via a web submission system (please read the instructions below before entering the system).
The recommended submission format is that of Springer LNSC series. Here are format guidelines and advice on avoiding common errors. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions.
Please provide your paper exactly as it should appear in the book, with the following exceptions: it should not contain page numbers, running heads, and copyright note, as well as the authors' names (see below). We recommend to leave blank space instead of the authors' names and affiliation on the first page, so that when you add this info you don't have to re-format the paper and the page count does not increase.
Software and data
In addition to the text of the paper, authors are strongly encouraged to provide programs that permit to reproduce their results, see CICLing verifiability, reproducibility, and open source policy.
The papers should not exceed 12 pages and ought not to be shorter than 9–10 pages.
A small additional fee will be charged for additional pages exceeding this limit. Please contact us if you exceed the limit by more than 5 pages. The additional fee is charged for the pages exceeding the page limit in either the version submitted for review or in the camera-ready version, whichever is greater. The camera-ready version must not be shorter (or contain less information) than the version submitted for review unless the reviewers required this (contact us if you feel you should do shorten it; in any case this would not reduce the fee).
We strongly advise you to use as many pages as you really need (even if you pay the small additional fee) and not sacrifice the quality of your paper trying to squeeze it into the page limit. Longer papers often are more complete and understandable and thus receive more citations.
Double blind review policy
Our review procedure is double blind. The papers submitted for review must not contain the authors' names, affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors' identity (this information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance).
You may cite your own previous work provided that it is not obvious from the text that the cited work is yours. When citing your previous work, avoid indicating that it is yours and do keep your name in References:
Incorrect: In  we have shown ... <Hidden for review>  have shown ... Correct: In  it has been shown ... Smith and Dow  have shown ...
Incorrect: 1. <Authors hidden for review>. A novel WSD algorythm, ACL 2014.
1. Smith, J., J. Dow. A novel WSD algorythm, ACL 2014.
We accept only electronic submissions via the submission page.
Submission is done in two steps. Before the abstract registration deadline, you should register your paper. You only need a tentative abstract at this stage (it can be improved later). Later, before the full text uploading deadline, you should upload a PDF file with the complete and finished paper. Only the papers for which the abstract has been registered in time can be uploaded at this point; no new papers can be registered after the paper registration deadline has been expired.
Late submissions: contact us to see if we still can process your submission. Before contacting us, check whether the system is still open. While the system is open for submissions, you can upload your papers; we will do our best to normally review the papers uploaded after the deadline, though no guarantee.
Submission page will present you a little questionnaire asking you to tick the "groups" to which your paper belong. Please tick all that apply.
Now you are ready to go to the submission page:

The papers accepted for the poster/demo session will be published in a special issue of a journal. We will contact the poster authors separately for formatting instructions. The size of the papers is the same as for the oral session.
All posters and demos will be presented twice: at the session of short oral presentations during at the poster/demo session (combined with the Welcome party), both on the first working day of the conference. Later, posters can also be shown during breaks to interested attendees.
For presentation of your poster, you will be given approximately 1 square meter (120 cm high, 85 cm wide) of vertical surface to attach your material. If you have some special requirements, please let us know. It is a good idea to bring your own scotch and pins for your poster (unless you know which one is adequate for the surface, bring both).
During the poster/demo session and breaks, all participants will have a chance to demonstrate the material related to their talks or posters. Please bring your laptop for your demo. It is good idea to bring your own T-joint for your laptop, for other people to be able to use the same electricity outlet. Please contact us in advance if you need Internet access for your demo.
