The conference will be held October 25-29, 2014, in Doha, Qatar.
The conference will consist of three days of full paper presentations
with two days of workshops and tutorials.

Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Papers
presented at EMNLP should mainly contain new material that has not
been presented at any other meeting with publicly available
proceedings. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other
meetings or publications must disclose this information at submission
time. Please list all other meetings where the paper has been
submitted in the "other submissions" field on the submission site (and
see below for details of the multiple submission policy).

Each long paper submission consists of a paper of up to nine (9) pages
of content and any number of additional pages containing references
only, together with optional supplementary material as described

EMNLP 2014 also solicits short papers. 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 orally or as a poster (at the
discretion of the program chairs), 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 or as posters. Each short paper submission will be reviewed by
at least two program committee members.

Both long and short papers should follow the two-column format of
NAACL 2013 proceedings. Please use the official NAACL 2013 style files
for the paper (and ensure that your paper is Letter size). We reserve
the right to reject submissions if the paper does not conform to these
styles, including letter size and font size restrictions.

As reviewing will be blind, the submission should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that
reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith,
1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith
(1991) previously showed ...". Submissions that do not conform to
these requirements will be rejected without review. Separate author
identification information is required as part of the on-line
submission process.

The supplementary material should be supplementary (rather than
central) to the paper. It may include explanations or details of
proofs or derivations that do not fit into the paper, lists of
features or feature templates, sample inputs and outputs for a system,
pseudo-code or source code, and data. The paper should not rely on the
supplementary material: while the paper may refer to and cite the
supplementary material and the supplementary material will be
available to reviewers, they will not be asked to review or even
download the supplementary material.

Submission and reviewing will be on-line, managed by the START system.
The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. The
supplementary material must be in the form of a single .zip or a .tgz
archive file with a maximum size of 10MB; otherwise there are no
constraints on its format. Submissions, together with all
supplementary material, must be uploaded to the START system by the
submission deadlines; submissions submitted after that time will not
be reviewed. To minimize network congestion we request authors upload
their submissions as early as possible (especially if they contain
large supplementary material files).
