Submission instructions

Two types of submissions are invited: full papers and poster abstracts. Submissions are due by 11:59 PM EST on March 12, 2009. Submit your paper or abstract via the NAACL HLT BioNLP 2009 site at https://www.softconf.com/naacl-hlt09/BioNLP2009/. Note that the review of papers on the shared task will be handled separately, by the task organizers.

Full papers should not exceed eight (8) pages of text and one page of references. These are intended to be reports of original research. BioNLP aims to be the forum for interesting, innovative, and promising work involving biomedicine and language technology, whether or not yielding high performance at the moment. This by no means precludes our interest in and preference for mature results, strong performance, and thorough evaluation. Both types of research and combinations thereof are encouraged.

Poster abstracts should not exceed two (2) pages. Accepted abstracts will be published in a separate section of the workshop proceedings. Appropriate poster topics include preliminary results, application notes, descriptions of work in progress, etc.

Submissions must be electronic and in PDF format, and should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Ensure that you are *not* in A4 format. Please see the conference website for detailed typesetting specifications. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word style files available on the NAACL HLT meeting website (http://clear.colorado.edu/NAACLHLT2009/stylefiles.html). Submissions need not be anonymous. Authors who cannot submit a PDF file electronically should contact the workshop organizers well in advance of the submission deadline.

Dual submission policy: note that papers may not be submitted to the BioNLP 2009 workshop if they are or will be concurrently submitted to another meeting or publication and that other meeting or publication prohibits dual submissions. If your paper is also submitted to ISMB or AMIA, you should expect it to be rejected by ISMB and AMIA. If your paper is or will be concurrently under consideration by another meeting or publication, notify us of that fact in a footnote on the first page. Do not dual-submit your BioNLP 2009 workshop paper to ISMB or AMIA.
