Papers should present original, unpublished research and implementation results. Simultaneous submission to other venues with published proceedings is prohibited. FSMNLP accepts two kinds of submissions:

- full papers (8 pages + references) reporting completed, significant research,
- short papers (4 pages + references) reporting ongoing work and partial results, implementations, grammars, practical tools, interactive software demos, etc.

Short papers are expected to be presented as system demos in a demo session, posters and/or short presentations, while long papers are presented in a longer presentation session.  Both paper types are published in the ACL anthology.

All submissions are electronic and in PDF format via a web-based submission server.  Authors are strongly encouraged to use ACL (2012) style (available for LaTeX and Word) in producing the PDF document.  These templates are available at:

Information about the author(s) and other identifying information such as obvious self-references (e.g., "We showed in [12] ...") and financial or personal acknowledgements should be omitted in the submitted papers whenever feasible.
