Call for Papers:

The first call for papers for the main conference is open. The paper
submission system is now open at
https://www.softconf.com/coling2014/main/. Papers should be prepared
using the paper templates available here

We invite authors to submit papers in all relevant areas and encourage
authors to include analysis of the influence of theories (intuitions,
methodologies, insights), to technologies (computational algorithms,
methods, tools, data), and/or contributions of technologies to theory
development. Contributions that display and rigorously discuss future
potential, even if not (yet) attested in standard evaluation, are
welcome. For more information and instructions for authors see the
preliminary call for papers here
