Submission & Publication

We accept submission of both long (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) to be presented as long or short oral presentation at the workshop. The papers of the workshop will be published as online proceedings. In addition, we aim for a journal special issue as post-conference proceedings in which a selected amount of papers presented at the workshop will be published.

When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc. If this data (or parts of it) are provided as Linked Data, then please also consider to participate in the Linguistic Linked Data Challenge (http://ldl2014.org/challenge.html).

Please submit papers via SoftConf at http://www.softconf.com/lrec2014/LDL/. Papers should be formatted according to the LREC style guidelines and stylesheets can be obtained from http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2012/?Authors-Kit. For any questions please contact John McCrae or Christian Chiarcos.
