Paper Submission and Format

Paper submission to DDDSM is via Softconf START conference management system at

Submissions must be in PDF, and must conform to the official style guidelines in two-column format for IJCNLP 2017. We ask you to use the provided LaTeX style files or Word template. Authors are strongly discouraged from modifying the style files. Submissions that do not conform to the required styles, including paper size, margin width, and font size restrictions, will be rejected without review.

All submitted papers must follow the two-column format of IJCNLP 2017 proceedings without exceeding eight (8) pages, including figures, tables and references. Submissions must conform to the official style guidelines, which are contained in the style files, and they must be in PDF. Authors should submit their manuscripts online. Electronic submission substantially reduces the editorial processing and reviewing times and shortens overall publication times. For more information, please refer to 


Peer Review Process

As the reviewing will be blind, papers should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...”, should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Smith (1991) previously showed ...”. Acknowledgments of funding or assistance should be omitted. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Separate author identification information is required as part of the online submission process.

Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least 2 members, from the Programme Committee. The final recommendations are made based on the scoring and feedback received via peer review process.


Presentation Requirement

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for IJCNLP 2017. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as a poster (at the discretion of the program chairs based on the nature rather than the quality of the work). There will be no distinction in the proceedings between papers presented orally or as posters.


Special Issue

 Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a journal special issue.
