All accepted submissions will be presented as posters. Additionally, selected submissions will be presented orally.

All submissions should conform to EMNLP 2018 style guidelines. Long and short paper submissions must be anonymized. Abstract submissions should include author information (and where the work was published in a footnote on the front page, if applicable). Please submit your papers at the SoftConf link.
