Call for Abstracts

We invite submissions in areas of Natural Language Processing (NLP) related, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • multilingual NLP (translation, cross-lingual representations)
  • building NLP in a responsible way (ethics, model understanding, etc.)
  • transfer learning in NLP (domain adaptation, pretraining, etc.)
  • natural language generation (dialogue, summarisation, etc.)

We encourage NLP researchers to submit an abstract describing new, previously, or concurrently published research. Submissions will be non-archival; submissions of work that has been or will be submitted to other venues are encouraged. Abstracts may describe completed research or work-in-progress.

We welcome abstract submissions with theoretical or methodological contributions or focusing on applications. We also welcome abstract submissions on negative results as well as challenges faced in industrial or academic applications. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. Submissions will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind setting.

One student author per accepted abstract is eligible to get a travel grant. Note that travel grants can fund travel within Europe but might not be enough to cover travel from elsewhere.

Style guidelines

  • Abstracts must not include identifying information.
  • Abstracts must be no more than 1 page of content (including tables and figures), plus unlimited space for references.
  • Abstract must use the ACL 2019 style files and must be submitted as a PDF.
  • Do not include any supplementary files with your submission.

Content guidelines

  • Your abstract should stand alone, without linking to a longer paper or supplement.
  • You should convey motivation and give some technical details of the approach used.
  • While we appreciate that space is limited, some experimental results are likely to improve reviewers’ opinions of your abstract.

Acceptance criteria

Abstracts will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, who will use the following criteria:

  • Is this abstract appropriate for EurNLP? I.e. Does it describe research in NLP?
  • Does the abstract describe work that is compelling and/or an interesting application?
  • Does the abstract adequately convey the material that will be presented?
