The Program Committee requires that the subject matter be linguistic and that the abstract be coherent and in accord with published specifications. In 2018, there will be no more than six (6) simultaneous sessions of regular papers in each time block. As in the past, there is no upper limit on the number of papers in any subarea. Each abstract will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee and by expert external reviewers. The members of the Program Committee accept and reject abstracts based on the ratings assigned by the reviewers.  The Program Committee then meets to assemble the final program and arrange each paper and poster session.
