STIL 2021, online event
13th Brazilian Symposium in Information and Human Language Technology
November 29th – December 3rd, 2021.
>>>> Deadline for paper submissions: August 9th, 2021 <<<
STIL is the bi-annual Language Technology event supported by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC – http://www.sbc.org.br) and by the Brazilian Special Interest Group on Natural Language Processing (CE-PLN – https://sites.google.com/view/
In 2021, STIL will be held as an online event collocated with BRACIS 2021 (The 10th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems), ENIAC 2021 (The 18th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence), and KDD-BR2021 (the 5th Brazilian Competition on Knowledge Discovery In Databases).
STIL will feature the following collocated events:
- VII Workshop on Portuguese Description (JDP), and the
- VII Student Workshop on Information and Human Language Technology (TILic).
The conference is multidisciplinary and covers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to Human Language Technology, such as Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics, and Information Science. It aims at bringing together both academic and industrial participants working on those areas.

Terminology, Terminography, Lexicology, Lexicography, Phraseology, Lexical Semantics
GUIDELINES FOR PAPER SUBMISSION
All papers submitted to STIL must be written in English.
We accept submissions of long and short papers. Long papers should describe complete work with significant results. Short papers may report work in progress, negative results, opinion papers, or application/demo papers.
Long papers may have up to eight (8) pages of content (including tables and pictures), additional pages of references, and presented orally. Short papers should have up to four (4) pages of content, additional pages of references, and will be presented as posters. Authors should also indicate whether they accept their long paper to be reallocated as a poster should the reviewers recommend.
Paper formatting must follow the SBC guidelines available at this address: http://bit.ly/2jFbJTa
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field. The reviewing process will be double blind and therefore papers should not display any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text. Self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005) …”, must be avoided. Instead, authors should use “Silva previously showed (Silva, 2005) …”.
By submitting papers to STIL 2021, authors agree that at least one author will register for the conference and present the paper in case of acceptance. Furthermore, it is the conference policy that at least one of the authors of accepted papers has to register *before* the deadline for sending the camera-ready paper. Accepted papers whose author(s) do not register *before* the camera-ready deadline will not be included in the online proceedings.
