Call For Papers

The 2021 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP 2021) invites the submission of long and short papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research in empirical methods for Natural Language Processing. As in recent years, some of the presentations at the conference will be for papers accepted by the Transactions of the ACL (TACL) and Computational Linguistics (CL) journals.


EMNLP 2021 has the goal of a broad technical program. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following areas (in alphabetical order):

    Computational Social Science and Cultural Analytic
    Dialogue and Interactive Systems
    Discourse and Pragmatics
    Efficient Methods for NLP
    Ethics and NLP
    Information Extraction
    Information Retrieval and Text Mining
    Interpretability and Analysis of Models for NLP
    Linguistic Theories, Cognitive Modeling and Psycholinguistics
    Machine Learning for NLP
    Machine Translation and Multilinguality
    NLP Applications
    Phonology, Morphology and Word Segmentation
    Question Answering
    Resources and Evaluation
    Semantics: Lexical, Sentence level, Textual Inference and Other areas
    Sentiment Analysis, Stylistic Analysis, and Argument Mining
    Speech, Vision, Robotics, Multimodal Grounding
    Syntax: Tagging, Chunking and Parsing

Paper Submission Information

Long Papers

Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Review forms will be made available prior to the deadlines. Long papers may consist of up to 8 pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references; final versions of long papers will be given one additional page of content (up to 9 pages) so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account. Long papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by the program committee. The decisions as to which papers will be presented orally and which as poster presentations will be based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between long papers presented orally and as posters.

Short Papers

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Please note that a short paper is not a shortened long paper. Instead short papers should have a point that can be made in a few pages. Some kinds of short papers are:

    A small, focused contribution
    A negative result
    An opinion piece
    An interesting application nugget

Short papers may consist of up to 4 pages of content, plus unlimited references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given 5 content pages in the proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use this additional page to address reviewers’ comments in their final versions.

Short papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by the program committee. While short papers will be distinguished from long papers in the proceedings, there will be no distinction in the proceedings between short papers presented orally and as posters.
