Instructions for Authors


Submissions should follow the two-column format of the ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages; this limit does not include references (the aim being to encourage thorough citation of related work, as is the policy in EMNLP this year). 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 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. All papers should include the full authors' names and affiliations. (Note that this diverges from the "blind" submission guidelines adopted for ACL conferences.)

Camera Ready Versions

The format is as above. Papers of oral presentations and full posters have 8 pages (excluding references), those of student posters have 2 pages (excluding references).

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.

For any comments or questions about these pages please contact the ALTA Workshop 2007 organisers (workshop AT alta DOT asn DOT au).
