Submission Information

The papers should report original and unpublished research on topics of interest for the workshop. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop, and will be published in the workshop proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.

A paper accepted for presentation at the workshop must not be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings.

Submission Format: All submissions must be electronic in PDF and must be formatted using the ACL 2012 style files, which are available at

Maximum Length: The maximum length of a submitted paper is eight (8) pages of content for long papers or four (4) pages of content for short papers and demonstrations, plus up to two (2) pages of references.

Anonymous Review: Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Double Submitting: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information on the START online submission page. If the LAW VI accepts a paper, authors must notify the program chairs *immediately* indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. The LAW VI cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Submission site: Authors must submit papers online at

Submission deadline is March 28, 2012 23:59 GMT-11. Papers submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed.
