Three types of submissions are invited:

  • Research papers, describing original research; these can be either long (6-8 pages, not including references) or short (3-4 pages, not including references);
  • Project notes, describing recent, ongoing or planned projects (2-4 pages including references);
  • Demonstration notes, accompanying demonstration of software, tools, or systems (2-4 pages including references).

Papers should be in compliance with the LREC 2020 Author’s kit. Please, go to the submission site and follow the instructions. The MultilingualBIO proceedings will be published in the LREC 2020 proceedings, with a specific ISBN.

Identify, Describe and Share your LRs!

Describing your LRs in the LRE Map is now a normal practice in the submission procedure of LREC (introduced in 2010 and adopted by other conferences). To continue the efforts initiated at LREC 2014 about “Sharing LRs” (data, tools, web-services, etc.), authors will have the possibility,  when submitting a paper, to upload LRs in a special LREC repository. This effort of sharing LRs, linked to the LRE Map for their description, may become a new “regular” feature for conferences in our field, thus contributing to creating a common repository where everyone can deposit and share data.

As scientific work requires accurate citations of referenced work so as to allow the community to understand the whole context and also replicate the experiments conducted by other researchers, LREC 2020 endorses the need to uniquely Identify LRs through the use of the International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN,, a Persistent Unique Identifier to be assigned to each Language Resource. The assignment of ISLRNs to LRs cited in LREC papers  will be offered at submission time.
