Paper submission instructions

All paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed, and unpublished work. In addition to papers describing algorithms, models, or experimentation, we are happy to receive carefully argued and supported position papers, insightful reviews or synthesis of relevant literature, or informative descriptions of real-world experiences deploying language technology (including prototypes) in relevant clinical settings (Topics include, but are not limited to, the ones listed in the Intent To Submit formsee under Important Dates below) .

A key goal of this workshop is to foster the conversation with clinicians and clinical researchers, both at the workshop and when these papers are read in the future. We therefore include practicing clinicians and clinical researchers on our program committee, and the ability to communicate ideas, approaches, and results clearly to people who are not computational linguists will be as important as the technical quality of the work.  

Although ACL has adopted ACL Rolling Review (ARR) for submission, CLPsych submissions will be done using softconf, and detailed information will appear at We will be taking submissions of both long papers (up to eight pages of core content) and short papers (up to four pages of core content); plus unlimited references. Up to an extra page can be added in the final camera-ready version to allow space for addressing the reviewers’ comments. We require all authors to include relevant discussions of ethical considerations and impact in the body of the paper. 

Authors may optionally include appendices, but these constitute additional information and might not be looked at by reviewers. If anything in the appendix is an important part of the contribution, or important for the reviewers to assess the work, they should be a part of the main paper, and not appear in the appendix. 

All submissions must be fully anonymized to preserve the double-blind reviewing policy. Insufficiently anonymized submissions will be considered for desk-reject.

Authors should adhere to NAACL 2022 submission policy and requirements that are posted under PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION on ACL Rolling Review with respect  to author guidelines, double submission, anonymity period, double blind review, data management, human subjects discussion, and referencing prior work. Word and LaTeX templates are also available using the same link under Paper Submission and Templates

In order for the paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one author must register for the workshop by the early registration deadline. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to provide a pre-recorded video presenting their work and to participate in discussant-led breakout sessions, in which their paper will be discussed.
