> System Description Paper for 2 subtasks

Do we have to submit two separate system description papers for the 2 subtasks? The information here says that if the subtasks are very different, then different papers are required. Can someone please elaborate on this?

Thanks for your question. For this task, you could just submit one.

should we submit a blind paper (no author names) and a draft version (including lines %) ? for this step of paper submission ?

Only a version with author names will be fine. I just double-checked the official website (, and they mentioned "The review process is single-blind. Submissions are not anonymous and should use the COLING camera-ready formatting. ".

Based on your recommendation, we submitted our paper with author names and received a confirmation that it has been uploaded but with a warning indicating that "The document should be anonymous. It appears that at least one of the author names is included at the top of the document, below the title. Please revise your submission to fix this issue (or issues)."

Should we ignore this warning?

Thanks again for your fruitful help.

Kind Regards,
