The review process is anonymous. Submissions will be reviewed by 3 members of the Programme Committee. Based on the reviewers' scores, the submitted articles will be accepted as REGULAR papers (8 pages in the full conference proceedings and 30 minutes oral presentation in the conference sessions) or as SHORT papers (7 pages in the full conference proceedings and 20 minutes oral presentation in the conference sessions), or as POSTER papers (6 pages in the full conference proceedings and tableau-presentation in poster sessions). Authors of accepted papers will receive guidelines regarding how to produce camera-ready versions of their papers for inclusion in the proceedings. Guidelines for producing camera-ready versions and demo text will be also available at the conference web site at http://www.lml.bas.bg/ranlp2013. The full conference proceedings will be distributed at the event and uploaded at the ACL Anthology.
Authors may submit the same paper at several conferences. In this case they must notify the organisers in a separate mail to ranlp2013 [ AT ] lml.bas.bg, so we know that the paper might be withdrawn depending on the results at some other conference.
The submission is maintained by the conference management software - START. To make a submission please go to http://www.softconf.com/ranlp13/main and follow the instruction given there. In case of problem, feel free to contact us at the ranlp2013 [AT] lml.bas.bg.
