We encourage submissions that describe new theoretical models, applied techniques, and research in progress. However, contributions that have been already published or presented in other locations are welcomed. Depending if the authors transferred the right of publishing their work exclusively to a specific editor (e.g. IEEE/ACM conferences and journals), we might not be able to include the submission into the proceedings. In such a case, the work will be only mentioned in the proceedings.
Submissions should be prepared according to the main conference format (Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science). All submissions should be written in English and submitted as PDF. Submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind) by the program committee members. Evaluation criteria will include novelty, significance for theory/practice, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. All the submissions should be submitted via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nl4ai2018
Papers must comply with page limit (max 12 pages long + 2 page of bibliography only) and LNCS style (https://www.springer.com/gp/c
For the camera ready: please upload a zipped archive with the PDF and LaTeX sources or Word.
At least one author is required to register at the conference.
At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the workshop to present the work.
The accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings via CEUR Workshop Proceedings. We will also consider editing a special issue on The Italian Journal of Computational Linguistics (http://www.ai-lc.it/it/rivista) after the workshop by encouraging the participants to extend their papers.
