42  This document contains the instructions for preparing a camera-ready
43  manuscript for the proceedings of ACL-2013. The document itself
44  conforms to its own specifications, and is therefore an example of
45  what your manuscript should look like. These instructions should be used for both
46  papers submitted for review and for final versions of accepted
47  papers.  Authors are asked to conform
48  to all the directions reported in this document.

51\section{Credits}
52
53This document has been adapted from the instructions for earlier ACL proceedings, including those for ACL-2012 by Maggie Li and Michael White, those from ACL-2010 by Jing-Shing Chang and Philipp Koehn, those for ACL-2008 by Johanna D. Moore, Simone Teufel, James Allan, and Sadaoki Furui, those for ACL-2005 by Hwee Tou Ng and Kemal Oflazer, those for ACL-2002 by Eugene Charniak and Dekang Lin, and earlier ACL and EACL formats. Those versions were written by several people, including John Chen, Henry S. Thompson and Donald Walker. Additional elements were taken from the formatting instructions of the {\em International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence}.

55\section{Introduction}
56
57The following instructions are directed to authors of papers submitted
58to ACL-2013 or accepted
59for publication in its proceedings. All authors are required
60to adhere to these specifications. Authors are required to provide a
61Portable Document Format (PDF)
62% das: removed reference to PostScript
63% and PostScript
64version of their papers. \textbf{The proceedings will be printed on A4
66systems is limited should contact the publication chairs Roberto Navigli
67(\texttt{navigli@di.uniroma1.it}) and Jing-Shin Chang (\texttt{jshin@csie.ncnu.edu.tw}) as soon as possible.
68
69\section{General Instructions}
70
71Manuscripts must be in two-column format.  Exceptions to the
72two-column format include the title, authors' names and complete
73addresses, which must be centered at the top of the first page, and
74any full-width figures or tables (see the guidelines in
75Subsection~\ref{ssec:first}). {\bf Type single-spaced.}  Start all
76pages directly under the top margin. See the guidelines later
77regarding formatting the first page.  The manuscript should be
78printed single-sided and its length
79should not exceed the maximum page limit described in Section~\ref{sec:length}.
80Do not number the pages.
81
82\subsection{Electronically-available resources}
83
84ACL 2013 provides this description in \LaTeX2e (acl2013.tex) and PDF
85format (acl2013.pdf), along with the \LaTeX2e style file used to
86format it (acl2013.sty) and an ACL bibliography style
87(acl.bst). These files are all available at
88\url{http://www.acl2013.org}. A Microsoft Word
89template file (acl2013.dot) is also available at the same URL. We
90strongly recommend the use of these style files, which have been
91appropriately tailored for the ACL 2013 proceedings. If you have an
92option, we recommend that you use the \LaTeX2e version. \textbf{If you will be
93using the Microsoft Word template, we suggest that you anonymize your
94source file so that the pdf produced does not retain your identity.}
95This can be done by removing any personal information from your source
96document properties.

100\subsection{Format of Electronic Manuscript}
101\label{sect:pdf}
102
103For the production of the electronic manuscript you must use Adobe's
104Portable Document Format (PDF). This format can be generated from
105postscript files. On Linux/Unix systems, you can use {\tt ps2pdf} for
106this purpose. In Microsoft Windows, you can use Adobe's Distiller,
107or if you have \textit{cygwin}
108installed, you can use \textit{dvipdf} or \textit{ps2pdf}. Note that
109some word processing programs generate PDF which may not include all
110the necessary fonts (esp. tree diagrams, symbols). When you print or
111create the PDF file, there is usually an option in your printer setup
112to include none, all or just non-standard fonts.  Please make sure
113that you select the option of including ALL the fonts. {\em Before
114sending it, test your PDF by printing it from a computer different
115from the one where it was created.} Moreover, some word processors may
116generate very large postscript/PDF files, where each page is rendered
117as an image. Such images may reproduce poorly. In this case, try
118alternative ways to obtain the postscript and/or PDF. One way on some
119systems is to install a driver for a postscript printer, send your
120document to the printer specifying Output to a file'', then convert
121the file to PDF.
122
123It is of utmost importance to specify the \textbf{A4 format} (21 cm
124x 29.7 cm) when formatting the paper. When working with
125{\tt dvips}, for instance, one should specify {\tt -t a4}.
126
127Print-outs of the PDF file on A4 paper should be identical to the
128hardcopy version. If you cannot meet the above requirements about the
130publication chairs above as soon as possible.
131
132
133\subsection{Layout}
134\label{ssec:layout}
135
136Format manuscripts two columns to a page, in the manner these
137instructions are formatted. The exact dimensions for a page on A4
138paper are:
139
140\begin{itemize}
141\item Left and right margins: 2.5 cm
142\item Top margin: 2.5 cm
143\item Bottom margin: 2.5 cm
144\item Column width: 7.7 cm
145\item Column height: 24.7 cm
146\item Gap between columns: 0.6 cm
147\end{itemize}
148
149\noindent Papers should not be submitted on any other paper size.
151
152
153% Removed by KO  we are not accepting printed papers any more!!!
154%  Exceptionally,
155% authors for whom it is \emph{impossible} to print on A4 paper may use
156% \emph{US Letter} paper. In this case, they should keep the \emph{top}
157% and \emph{left} margins as given above, use the same column width,
158% height and gap, and modify the bottom and right margins as
159% necessary. Note that the text will no longer be centered.
160
161\subsection{Fonts}
162
163For reasons of uniformity, Adobe's {\bf Times Roman} font should be
164used. In \LaTeX2e{} this is accomplished by putting
165
166\begin{quote}
167\begin{verbatim}
168\usepackage{times}
169\usepackage{latexsym}
170\end{verbatim}
171\end{quote}
172in the preamble. If Times Roman is unavailable, use {\bf Computer
173  Modern Roman} (\LaTeX2e{}'s default).  Note that the latter is about
174  10\% less dense than Adobe's Times Roman font.

196
197\subsection{The First Page}
198\label{ssec:first}
199
200Center the title, author's name(s) and affiliation(s) across both
201columns. Do not use footnotes for affiliations. Do not include the
202paper ID number assigned during the submission process. Use the
203two-column format only when you begin the abstract.
204
205{\bf Title}: Place the title centered at the top of the first page, in
206a 15-point bold font. (For a complete guide to font sizes and styles, see Table~\ref{font-table}) Long titles should be typed on two lines without
207a blank line intervening. Approximately, put the title at 2.5 cm from
208the top of the page, followed by a blank line, then the author's
209names(s), and the affiliation on the following line. Do not use only
210initials for given names (middle initials are allowed). Do not format surnames
211in all capitals (e.g., use Schlangen'' not SCHLANGEN'').
212Do not format title and section headings in all capitals as well
213except for proper names (such as BLEU'') that are conventionally
214in all capitals.
215The affiliation should contain the author's complete address, and if
217affiliation and the body of the first page.
218The title, author names and addresses should be completely
219identical to those entered to the electronical paper submission
220website in order to maintain the consistency of author information
221among all publications of the conference.
222
223{\bf Abstract}: Type the abstract at the beginning of the first
224column. The width of the abstract text should be smaller than the
225width of the columns for the text in the body of the paper by about
2260.6 cm on each side. Center the word {\bf Abstract} in a 12 point bold
227font above the body of the abstract. The abstract should be a concise
228summary of the general thesis and conclusions of the paper. It should
229be no longer than 200 words. The abstract text should be in 10 point font.
230
231{\bf Text}: Begin typing the main body of the text immediately after
232the abstract, observing the two-column format as shown in
233the present document. Do not include page numbers.
234
235{\bf Indent} when starting a new paragraph. Use 11 points for text and
237the title.
238
239\subsection{Sections}
240
242style shown on the present document.  Use numbered sections (Arabic
243numerals) in order to facilitate cross references. Number subsections
244with the section number and the subsection number separated by a dot,
245in Arabic numerals. Do not number subsubsections.
246
247{\bf Citations}: Citations within the text appear
248in parentheses as~\cite{Gusfield:97} or, if the author's name appears in
249the text itself, as Gusfield~\shortcite{Gusfield:97}.
250Append lowercase letters to the year in cases of ambiguity.
251Treat double authors as in~\cite{Aho:72}, but write as in~\cite{Chandra:81} when more than two authors are involved. Collapse multiple citations as in~\cite{Gusfield:97,Aho:72}. Also refrain from using full citations as sentence constituents. We suggest that instead of
252\begin{quote}
253  \cite{Gusfield:97} showed that ...''
254\end{quote}
255you use
256\begin{quote}
257Gusfield \shortcite{Gusfield:97}   showed that ...''
258\end{quote}
259
260If you are using the provided \LaTeX{} and Bib\TeX{} style files, you
261can use the command \verb|\newcite| to get author (year)'' citations.
262
263As reviewing will be double-blind, the submitted version of the papers should not include the
264authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that
265reveal the author's identity, e.g.,
266\begin{quote}
267We previously showed \cite{Gusfield:97} ...''
268\end{quote}
269should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as
270\begin{quote}
271Gusfield \shortcite{Gusfield:97}
272previously showed ... ''
273\end{quote}
274
275\textbf{Please do not  use anonymous citations} and  do not include acknowledgements when submitting your papers. Papers that do not conform
276to these requirements may be rejected without review.
277
278\textbf{References}: Gather the full set of references together under
279the heading {\bf References}; place the section before any Appendices,
280unless they contain references. Arrange the references alphabetically
281by first author, rather than by order of occurrence in the text.
282Provide as complete a citation as possible, using a consistent format,
283such as the one for {\em Computational Linguistics\/} or the one in the
284{\em Publication Manual of the American
285Psychological Association\/}~\cite{APA:83}.  Use of full names for
286authors rather than initials is preferred.  A list of abbreviations
287for common computer science journals can be found in the ACM
288{\em Computing Reviews\/}~\cite{ACM:83}.
289
290The \LaTeX{} and Bib\TeX{} style files provided roughly fit the
291American Psychological Association format, allowing regular citations,
292short citations and multiple citations as described above.
293
294{\bf Appendices}: Appendices, if any, directly follow the text and the
295references (but see above).  Letter them in sequence and provide an
296informative title: {\bf Appendix A. Title of Appendix}.
297
298\textbf{Acknowledgement} section should go as a last section immediately
299before the references.  Do not number the acknowledgement section.
300
301\subsection{Footnotes}
302
303{\bf Footnotes}: Put footnotes at the bottom of the page and use 9
304points text. They may be numbered or referred to by asterisks or other
305symbols.\footnote{This is how a footnote should appear.} Footnotes
306should be separated from the text by a line.\footnote{Note the line
307separating the footnotes from the text.}
308
309\subsection{Graphics}
310
311{\bf Illustrations}: Place figures, tables, and photographs in the
312paper near where they are first discussed, rather than at the end, if
313possible.  Wide illustrations may run across both columns.  Color
314illustrations are discouraged, unless you have verified that
315they will be understandable when printed in black ink.
316
317{\bf Captions}: Provide a caption for every illustration; number each one
318sequentially in the form:  Figure 1. Caption of the Figure.'' Table 1.
319Caption of the Table.''  Type the captions of the figures and
320tables below the body, using 11 point text.
321
322\section{Translation of non-English Terms}
323
324It is also advised to supplement non-English characters and terms
325with appropriate transliterations and/or translations
326since not all readers understand all such characters and terms.
327Inline transliteration or translation can be represented in
328the order of: original-form transliteration translation''.
329
330\section{Length of Submission}
331\label{sec:length}
332
333Long papers may consist of up to 8 pages of content, plus two extra pages for references
334and short papers may consist of up to 4 pages including references in the proceedings.
335Papers that do not conform to the specified length and formatting requirements are
336subject to be rejected without review.
337
338\section{Other Issues}
339
340Those papers that had software and/or dataset submitted for the review process should also submit it
341with the camera-ready paper. Besides, the software and/or dataset should not be anonymous.
342
343Please note that the publications of ACL 2013 will be publicly available at ACL Anthology
344(http://aclweb.org/anthology-new/) on July 28th, 2013, one week before the start of the conference.
345Since some of the authors may have plans to file patents related to their papers in the conference,
346we are sending this reminder that July 28th, 2013 may be considered to be the official publication date,
347instead of the opening day of the conference.
