|Australasian Language Technology Workshop 2012|
Instructions for Authors
All talks are scheduled for 30 minute time slots. Please prepare a 25 minute talk to leave 5 minutes for questions. The seminar room has a computer. If you'd like to use it please upload your slides before the start of the session in which you are talking. You can also use your own laptop if you'd prefer.
Each poster presenter will be provided with a poster board that is 2.4m long by 1.25m high to attach their poster to. Please prepare a poster that will fit.
Poster presenters are also scheduled to give a short 3 minute "poster boaster" talk to introduce their poster. The time limit will be very strictly enforced and there will be no questions.
For the camera-ready copies we will be using the style files for EACL 2012, as opposed to ACL 2012. It was brought to our attention that the ACL 2012 style files use the letter paper size, but that A4 is more common in Australasia. We are therefore making the change to the EACL 2012 style files, which use A4, for the camera-ready copy. We apologize for this inconvenience. On the bright side, because A4 paper is (slightly) bigger than letter, this gives authors a bit of extra space to address reviewers' comments in the camera-ready version.
The EACL2012 LaTeX and Microsoft Word style files are available below:
The program committee worked hard to ensure that each paper received at least three reviews. Please thank them for their effort by taking their comments into consideration in preparing the final version of your paper.
The page limits remain the same: Full papers should not exceed eight (8) pages plus any (reasonable) number of additional pages consisting of only references. Short papers should not exceed four (4) pages of content plus any (reasonable) number of additional pages consisting of only references.
Camera-ready copies must be in PDF format. Please submit your camera-ready copy through EasyChair.
Submissions are now closed.
All submissions should follow the ACL 2012 style guidelines and must be in PDF format. Full paper submissions should not exceed eight (8) pages plus any (reasonable) number of additional pages consisting of only references. Short paper submissions should not exceed four (4) pages of content plus any (reasonable) number of additional pages consisting of only 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:
We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font and page size restrictions.
The 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
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.
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 journal, conference, or workshop must be disclosed on the electronic submission form.
