Call for papers


NoDaLiDa addresses all aspects of natural language processing and computational linguistics — including work on applications, linguistic resources and in closely related neighbouring disciplines (such as linguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied to bear relevance to speech and language technologies.

We invite paper submissions in three distinct tracks:

  • regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research, including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate;
  • short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress, negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces; and
  • student papers on completed or ongoing work, where at least the first author is a Master or PhD student.

There will be a fourth track for system demonstrations, with a separate call for papers and submission deadline in the spring of 2017.

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in the NoDaLiDa 2017 proceedings, which is published as part of the NEALT Proceedings Series by Linköping University Electronic Press and the proceedings in the ACL Anthology: as well.
