Instructions for Authors


Submissions should follow the two-column format of the ACL proceedings. Full paper submissions should not exceed eight (8) pages plus one extra page for references. Short paper submissions should not exceed four (4) pages of content plus one extra page for references.

We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's conference. The style files and example documents are available below:

Latex Word
 acl2011.tex  acl2011.doc
 acl2011.pdf  acl2011.pdf
 all in zip file  all in zip file

We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font and page size restrictions.

The preferred submission format is PDF. If this introduces problems, please contact the organisers beforehand.

If we cannot print your file by the submission date we reserve the right to reject it without review. Therefore you are encouraged to send an early version with the typographical complexity of your final intended version so that we can check it is printable.

Blind Review Policy

This year, reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ..." must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Electronic Submission

We are using the EasyChair system; go there via our submission page.

Double Submission Policy

Papers presented at ALTA should consist mainly of new material that has not been previously published. Submission of similar papers to ALTA and another conference or workshop must be disclosed on the electronic submission form.

Camera-Ready Versions

The style files for the camera-ready versions are the same as for the first submissions. To facilitate addressing the reviewer comments, the camera-ready versions can have one additional page. So, up to nine (9) pages plus one extra page for references are allowed for full paper versions, and up to five (5) pages plus one extra page for references are allowed for short paper versions.

For any comments or questions about these pages please contact the ALTA Workshop 2011 organisers (workshop AT alta DOT asn DOT au).
