The call for papers:
Papers that have been or will be under consideration for other venues at the same time must be declared at submission time. If a paper is accepted for publication at COLING, it must be immediately withdrawn from other venues. If a paper under review at COLING is accepted elsewhere and authors intend to proceed there, the COLING committee must be notified immediately.
The submission form:

Title Page (Mandatory if multiple submissions or substantial overlap with prior publications)

DUAL SUBMISSION POLICY: Papers being submitted to other conferences or workshops can be submitted in parallel to COLING, on condition that submissions at other conferences will be withdrawn if the paper is accepted for COLING. Authors must clearly specify the other conferences or workshops to which the paper is being submitted and also declare that they will withdraw these other submissions if the paper is accepted for COLING, or alternatively, withdraw the paper from COLING 2020. Please list the names and dates of conferences, workshops or meetings where you have submitted or plan to submit this paper in addition to COLING 2020.

The Title page is a pdf file that must be uploaded.

The idea behind the anonymity period is to guarantee blind review, that is, that reviewers cannot find the same paper with a visible author and multiple comments on twitter so that they could get biased. Because arxiv can spend one or two days to publish a submission, the date is set as submission date, but the general idea is that after June, 1st there cannot be a copy of your paper with your name published. In case that eventually this happens, you must communicate at submission time as information in the title page (see submission page for guidelines).

Yes, it is possible to submit appendices. Please, note that appendices must be materials that are not critical to the reading and understanding of the paper. Appendices can contain code, a dataset, additional tables or parameters and data required for reproducibility. Appendices can be uploaded as supplementary material when submitting the paper for review or provided with an anonymized link to a direct download (ensure that author and institution names are not present in the URL if attaching this way). Upon acceptance, the appendices come after the reference.

The panot de flor, also called Flower of Barcelona, is a type of tile designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. Originaly designed for Ametller house, it was later used to pave many streets of Barcelona, specially in the Eixample district. Although it may go unnoticed by many, it is one of the most representative symbols of the city.
