The LREC template MUST be used for your submission(s). If not, your submission(s) will be rejected.
Authors are requested to format their submitted full paper(s) and their final paper(s) according to the guidelines specified in this style sheet.
Final papers which do not adhere to this format will NOT be accepted for publication in the Conference Proceedings.
Each article must include an abstract of 150 to 200 words in Times New Roman 9 pt with interlinear spacing of 10 pt. The heading Abstract should be centred, font Times 10 bold. This short abstract will also be used for producing the Booklet of Abstracts (PDF) containing the abstracts of all papers presented at the Conference.
Each article must contain the Keywords which have been entered in START at the final submission stage on a separate line beginning with "Keywords:" AFTER the abstract.
Keywords: keyword1, keyword2, keyword3
Full Paper Submission
Each full paper submission should be submitted on white A4 paper and must be between 4 and 8 pages in length (plus more pages for references if needed). The fully justified text should be formatted in two parallel columns. The new LREC paper dimensions are now aligned with ACL layout to ensure quick integration within the ACL Anthology. These dimensions are as follows:
- The paper is in A4-size format, that is 21 x 29.7 cm.
- The text height is 24.7 cm and the text width 16.0 cm in two columns separated by a 0.6 cm space.
- The font for the main body of the text must be Times New Roman 10 pt with interlinear spacing of 11 pt.
- The use of LREC2022.sty will ensure the good formatting.
Full Paper Submission
Each final paper should be submitted on white A4 paper. The fully justified text should be formatted according to LREC2022 style as indicated for the Full Paper submission. As indicated above, the font for the main body of the text should be Times New Roman 10 pt with interlinear spacing of 11 pt. Papers must be between 4 and 8 pages in length, including figures (plus more pages for references if needed), regardless of the mode of presentation (oral or poster).
Please do not include page numbers in your article.
The title of the article is in Times New Roman 14 pt boldface, and should appear in the centre of the page, 3 cm from the top. All the initials of each content word of the title MUST BE capitalised.
For example: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
The authors’ data are centred under the title, in the following format:
Name(s): Times 12 pt boldface
Affiliation: Times 10 pt regular
Address: Times 10 pt regular
E-mail address: Times 10 pt regular.
There should be no spaces left between paragraphs.
Level 1 Headings should be capitalised in the same way as the main title and centered within the column. The font used is Times New Roman 12 pt bold. There should also be a space of 12 pt between the title and the preceding section, and a space of 3 pt between the title and the text that follows.
The format of Level 2 Headings is the same as Level 1 Headings’, with the font Times New Roman 11 pt, except that the heading is aligned to the left of the column. There should also be a space of 6 pt between the title and the preceding section, and a space of 3 pt between the title and the text that follows.
The format of Level 3 Headings is the same as Level 2's, except that the font is Times New Roman 10 pt, and there should be no space left between the heading. There should also be a space of 6 pt between the title and the preceding section, and a space of 3 pt between the title and the text that follows.
References within the text
All references within the text should be placed in parentheses containing the author’s surname followed by a comma before the date of publication (Martin, 1996). If the sentence already includes the author’s name, then it is only necessary to put the date in parentheses: Martin (1996). When several authors are cited, those references should be separated with a semicolon: (Martin, 1996; Chibout & Masson, 1995). When the reference has more than three authors, only cite the name of the first author followed by et al. If the reference pertains to a Language Resource, it should be placed in parentheses containing the full author name followed by a comma before the date of publication (Speecon Consortium, 2014)
Footnotes are indicated within the text by a number in superscript. They should be in Times New Roman 9 pt, and appear at the bottom of the same page as their corresponding number. Footnotes should also be separated from the rest of the text by a horizontal line 5 cm long.
All figures should be centred and clearly distinguishable. They should never be drawn by hand, and the lines must be very dark in order to ensure a high-quality printed version. Figures should be numbered in the text, and have a caption in Times New Roman 10 pt underneath. A space must be left between each figure and its respective caption.
Figure and caption should always appear together on the same page. Particularly large figures can be centred, using a full page.
The instructions for tables are the same as for figures (see previous section).
Example: Level Tools Morphology Pitrat Analyser Syntax LFG Analyser (C-Structure) Semantics LFG F-Structures + Sowa’s Conceptual Graphs Table 1: Caption.
Place all acknowledgements (including those concerning research grants and funding) in a separate section at the end of the article.
Bibliographical references should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the article. The title of the section, "References", should be a Level 1 Heading. The first line of each bibliographical reference should be justified to the left of the column, and the rest of the entry should be indented by 0.35 cm.
The following examples (of fictitious references) illustrate the basic format required for conference Proceedings, books, journals, articles, PhD theses, and chapters of books respectively:

Language Resource References
Language Resource references should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the article, in the “Language Resource References” section, placed after the “Bibliographical References” section. The title of the “Language Resource References” section, should be a Level 1 Heading. The first line of each language resource reference should be justified to the left of the column, and the rest of the entry should be indented by 0.35 cm. The example in Section 13 illustrates the basic format required for language resources.

Due to the size of the conference rooms it is recommended to use 36 pt fonts for the presentation slides.
The size of posters holders is 90cm x 150 cm and the format is vertical (Portrait). The Poster Boards cannot accommodate Landscape posters. You can print your poster in Portrait A0 (84,1 x 118,9cm).
Those having a demo presentation alongside their poster should contact the organiser of the demonstrations, Sara Goggi.
