Publication policy

The conference does not publish any proceedings, but accepted contributions will be made available on this website as extended abstracts. Hence, it is possible to submit abstracts related to work that has been, or will be, published elsewhere, as long as this is compatible with the conditions of the other publication channel. Furthermore, a Special Issue of the Northern European Journal of Language Technology (NEJLT) will be dedicated to the conference. This issue will solicit full-length versions of selected papers, and will have a separate review process which will be initiated shortly after SLTC 2018 to allow feedback during the conference to be incorporated into the journal versions.


Papers are submitted as extended abstracts using the stylesheets below, and should include author names and affiliations. The traditional length of SLTC abstracts are 2 pages, but we allow abstracts of up to 4 pages including references if it benefits the presentation.

Please upload your abstract via EasyChair, using either of the style sheets below.

LaTeX: sltc2018.tex
