Registering for EMNLP 2020

For any technical issues about the web registration form, please  contact the help desk

The EMNLP 2020 registration fees are drastically reduced, reflecting our move to being 100% virtual. We are offering Early rates through October 30th and Late rates beginning October 31st. We include early and late rates to encourage early registrations so we can approximate the numbers of users and be able to work around any potential for system crashes or other glitches due to unexpected high volume. The fees charged will allow full access to all parts of the conference.

Registration Details

Early registration ends October 30 2020, 11:59 PM (EDT) with Regular at $150 and Student at $50.

ACL Membership

The ACL policy is that everyone attending an ACL conference must be a current (CY 2020) ACL member. So, in addition to the above registration fee, each Regular will add $100 membership fee to their registration and each Student will add $50 membership fee to their registration if not already a 2020 paid member. Your ACL membership is for the entire calendar year, providing membership in the society devoted to promoting CL research throughout the world, open access to the CL and TACL Journals and ACL Anthology as well as access to other ACL conferences in the same year without paying membership again. Membership also entitles you to electronic notification of new issues of the journals, discounts on publications from participating publishers, announcements of ACL and related conferences, workshops, and journal calls of interest to the community.

This year, the election of ACL Executive Committee is held from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31. One can vote in the election if she/he becomes an ACL member before Oct. 15
