Conference Management System
The submission process is maintained by the conference management software START. To make a submission please go here and follow the instructions. In case you encounter any problems, please email us at email@example.com.
At RANLP we accept the following submission types:
- Full papers should not exceed 8 pages (plus unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement).
- Short papers should not exceed 7 pages (plus unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement).
- Poster and demo submissions should be no longer than 6 pages (plus unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement).
The main body includes text, figures and tables. All submissiоns are made electronically as PDF files.
Supplementary material: Additional material that is relevant to the reviewers may be submitted but not as an integral part of the paper.There are two such types of material: appendices, which can be read, and non-readable supplementary materials, data or code. Additional material must be submitted as separate files, and must adhere to the same anonymity guidelines as the main paper. Appendices should be no longer than 2 pages.The paper must be self-contained: it is optional for reviewers to look at the supplementary material. It can be uploaded as up to three separate files: a single appendix file in PDF format, a single .tgz or .zip archive containing software, and/or a single .tgz or .zip archive containing data.
The reviewing process will be blind, except for the demo submissions. The papers must not include the authors’ names and affiliations, neither self-references that reveal the authors’ identity. Please avoid “We previously proved (James, 2023) …”, and use instead citations such as “James previously proved (James 2023)…”. Papers that do not conform with these requirements will be rejected without review.
In order to keep compliance with the ACL anthology we require that submitted papers follow strictlythe ACL-based template files however please note that the RANLP requirements for paper length are different and you need to comply with what is provided on this page.
Given this high standard and the limited number of time slots available to present regular papers, it has been agreed that in the event of a significant number of high-quality submissions, regular papers which do not quite meet the highest grade but receive excellent comments and are deemed worthy of being presented will be accepted as short papers and the authors of these papers will be invited to reduce the length of their paper in order to comply with the guidelines of short papers.
Similarly, if a high number of short papers are also received (and given the limited number of time-slots for short papers in the conference programme), authors whose short papers do not receive high enough scores from the reviewers but nevertheless receive positive comments and are deemed worthy of presentation will be invited to revise their submission as a poster paper and showcase their work in poster sessions, thus ensuring that more authors have the opportunity to present their work.

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 + 1 page for addressing reviewers’ comments and unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement) or as
- SHORT papers (7 pages + 1 page for addressing reviewers’ comments and unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement), or as
- POSTER papers (6 pages + 1 page for addressing reviewers’ comments and unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement).
- DEMO papers will be treated as long papers due to the high scores that they received. The authors can increase the length of their paper to 8 pages (+ 1 for addressing reviewers’ comments and unlimited number of pages for references and ethics/broader impact statement) in the conference proceedings.
Authors of accepted papers will receive the reviewers’ comments and further guidelines regarding how to produce camera-ready versions of their papers for inclusion in the proceedings. Upon acceptance, final versions of all submission types will be given one additional content page to address the reviewers’ comments (shown in the brackets above).
- The lengths of the final manuscripts per submission type are listed in the above section (Review policy).
- The authors of papers accepted should address the reviewers comments and re-submit a camera-ready version of their paper/s. The authors are allowed to add an extra page for that.
- The papers are submitted with the same ID to the START system.
- The manuscripts should follow strictly the ACL based stylesheets, provided above.
The full conference proceedings will be uploaded on the ACL Anthology, and each accepted paper will have a DOI number. A printed version, whose estimated price will be between 100 and 140 euros, will be made available after the conference if ordered in advance.
Multiple Submission Policy
Authors may submit the same paper at several conferences. In this case they must notify the organisers in a separate mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know that the paper might be withdrawn depending on the review results at some other conference.
