Paper Submission (for review) – Completed

Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee members. Accepted papers will be presented in one of the oral sessions or poster sessions as determined by the program committee.

As the reviewing will be blind, manuscripts must not include the authors’ names and affiliations. Authors should ensure that their identities are not revealed in any way in the paper. Self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) …”, must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) …”. All submissions must be electronic and in Portable Document Format (PDF) only. Paper submissions should follow the IEEE Proceedings’ two-column format without exceeding six (6) pages including references. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files according to IEEE Proceedings’ format. Submissions must conform to the official style guidelines. 

The official language of the conference is English. Papers submitted should be written in English.

Special Sessions

As there are special interests in a few topics, as part of the effort in promoting low resourced language research, in the conference we organize the following special sessions:

  • Special Session on Malay Language Processing
  • Special Session on Low Resource Language Processing
  • Special Session on New Technologies for Asian Language Processing

The deadline for the Main conference paper submission is 15 Sep 2020. The deadline for special submissions is 5 Oct 2020.
