Proceedings of conferences are main publication venues for computational areas of research. Different than humanities & social sciences, conference proceedings in computational disciplines are published as long or short paper formats after an extensive and competitive review process with quite low acceptance rates. The papers published in conferences are (often) publicly available.
A program committee (PC) hosts (invited & qualified) reviewers for the designated track.
Submitting academic papers to these conferences provide the accepted papers with high visibility and higher chances of citation across fields.
In addition to tracks in different areas of computational research, some conferences also have “industrial tracks” hosting more applied research.
Some of these computational conferences are listed below as follows:
EMNLP (Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing).
(EMNLP’19 acceptance rate is 25.6% for long and 20.5% for short papers)
ACL (Annual Conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics)
(ACL’19 acceptance rate is 25.7% for long and 18.2% for short papers)
COLING (International Conference on Computational Linguistics)
