ELM 2 – 2022

Petra Schumacher
University of Cologne

Invited Symposium on Computational Approaches to the Study of Meaning:

Marie-Catherine de Marneffe
The Ohio State University

University of Rochester

Format: In light of continued uncertainties about international in-person conferences due to COVID, we leave the precise format open at this point. While we sincerely hope to hold the conference in person, we plan to be flexible in terms of accommodating remote presentations where needed, so submissions do not require commitment to in-person attendance. (We will ask for preferences in different scenarios for planning purposes, but this will not be a consideration in acceptance decisions.)

Abstract Submissions via Easy Chair, due December 15, 2021 (11:59pm EST)

The conference will feature both 20-minute talks and poster presentations, and abstracts will be considered for both unless only one category is specified at time of submission. Abstracts must be anonymous and written in English. They should use US Letter size paper and 1 inch margins on all four sides. Abstracts must be single-spaced, and written using Arial 11pt font. Abstracts should be at most 2 pages, including the main text of the abstract, figures, and any supplementary materials and references the authors wish to include. Authors should avoid identifying information in the abstract, especially when referring to their own prior work. The abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file and must include a title at the top. Abstracts violating these requirements may be rejected without further consideration.
