SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
-----------------------

Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Submissions will be judged on appropriateness, clarity, originality/innovativeness, correctness/soundness, meaningful comparison, thoroughness, significance, contributions to research resources, and replicability. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Long papers may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus two extra pages for references; final versions should take into account reviewers' comments. Papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by the program committee. Decisions on presentation format will be based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between long papers presented orally and as posters.

The long paper submission deadline is:
- Friday, 18 October 2013, 23:59 CET.

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Characteristics of short papers include a small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Short papers will be presented in one or more oral or poster sessions, and will be given four (4) pages plus 2 pages for references in the proceedings. While short papers will be distinguished from long papers in the proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between short papers presented orally and as posters. Each short paper submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee members.

The deadline for submission of short papers is:
- Monday, 6 January 2014, 23:59 CET.

Additional instructions for electronic submission, submission format and style files will be posted on the conference website at http://eacl2014.org/
