Submission Guidelines for Papers and Posters

Final submissions should be submitted via the START conference submission system. The submission deadlines for TC44 are the following:
  • For papers related to academic submissions – “the week of 7 November 2022”;
  • Papers for Posters, if submitted before 10 September – also the week of 7 November 2022“;
  • For papers reporting on the results of Workshops and Panels – “the week of 5 December 2022“;
  • Papers for Posters submitted until the 31 October 2022 deadline, the deadline for associated papers is “the week of 5 December 2022“.

As was the case for 2021, AsLing will provide a separate site for authors to upload final manuscripts of academic papers or final versions of poster papers following peer review. This will be announced at a later date.

Submissions can be edited or corrected up until the deadline.

Authors should please check out the templates and other instructions they will be expected to adhere to when preparing and submitted their final papers and posters. To assist authors, we provide links to these, below.

Templates and Submission Instructions for E-Proceedings 2022

Manuscripts of all final papers and posters must be submitted using one of the template formats provided here. For papers the word limit is 5,000 words, while for poster papers the limit is 2,000 words; word limits EXCLUDE references and the abstract which should be between 150 and 200 words.

Formal papers describing workshops should adhere to the rules applicable for final papers connected to talks. Non-academic papers expanding on user session talks should follow the same general format as other final papers, starting with an abstract, followed by the body of the paper and ending with (in these cases, optional) references and bibliography. The body of non-academic papers may be structured freely. A summing up or conclusions section as the final part of the body is desirable in these papers, but not mandatory.

TC44 provides this description as Microsoft Word templates (both .docx and .doc versions). Users of OpenOffice and/or LibreOffice should be able to open MS-Word templates in their software.
