For Authors

"Dialogue" is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together theoretical linguists and technology developers. Please take this into account when deciding on the topic, content, and format of your presentation.

The range of topics covered at the conference has been traditionally very broad, yet the Editorial Board reserves the right to reject highly specialized papers which are only within the grasp of a handful of experts and would be of little interest to the attendees. 

Editors will give preference to theoretical papers that clearly state a problem and propose a solution, and applied studies that present a verifiable result obtained using adequate language material.

All papers accepted by reviewers for presentation at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be available on a digital medium and on the Dialogue website. Reviewers and the Editorial Board will select about 70 of the best papers for inclusion in Computational Linguistics and Intelligent Technologies, a publication indexed by Scopus.

Working languages

The working languages of "Dialogue" are Russian and English. When submitting your paper, please consider the following:

  • Scopus requires that all papers on computer-related topics with emphasis on practical applications be submitted in English. Papers written in English can be more readily reviewed by international experts. 
  • Papers on the linguistic analysis of Russian that require knowledge of Russian are to be submitted and presented in Russian and should include an extended summary in English.

Format requirements

Please read these requirements. The Editorial Board may ask you to make some adjustments if your paper does not comply with these requirements. Non-complying papers will not be accepted for publication.

Review

Once the review procedure is completed, the Editorial Board will send the review results to the authors. The results will be communicated to the authors between March 22 and April 17, the exact date depending on when the paper was submitted and on the time it takes the reviewers to form their opinion. Very often the reviewers will make some remarks and criticisms. If substantial changes are made to the original paper, the Editorial Board may commission a second review. It may take the reviewers some more time to make a final decision on a heavily revised paper.

The authors will be asked to submit the final versions of their papers between March 28 and April 24. The final version should incorporate the changes suggested by reviewers, if any, and comply with the format requirements (see above). The submission deadline is set individually for each paper and depends on when the review result is communicated to the author. Please note the organizers cannot guarantee the publication of papers submitted after the deadline.
