STIL is the bi-annual Language Technology event supported by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and by the Brazilian Special Interest Group on Natural Language Processing (CE-PLN).

In 2023, STIL will be held in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil, collocated with BRACIS 2023 (The 12th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems), ENIAC 2023 (The 20th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence), and KDD-BR2023 (the 7th Brazilian Competition on Knowledge Discovery In Databases).

The conference is multidisciplinary and covers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to Human Language Technology, such as Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics, and Information Science. It aims at bringing together both academic and industrial participants working in those areas.

Guidelines for paper submission

STIL 2023 accepts submissions of long and short papers. Long papers should describe finished, original, unpublished work with significant results, and will be presented orally. Short papers may report work in progress, negative results, opinion papers, or applications/demos, and will be presented as posters.


All papers submitted to STIL must be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.


Long papers may have up to eight (8) pages of content (including tables and figures), and additional pages of references. Short papers should have up to four (4) pages of content and additional pages of references. Authors will be asked whether they agree to have their long paper relocated as a poster, if recommended by reviewers.


Paper formatting must follow the SBC guidelines available at the SBC website and also in Overleaf .

Reviewing process

All papers submitted to STIL will be reviewed by 3 experts in the field. The reviewing process will be double-blind, and therefore papers should not contain any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text. Self-references that reveal the author’s identities must be avoided. For example, instead of “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...” authors should use “Silva (2005) previously showed ...”.

Submission policy

By submitting papers to STIL 2023, all authors agree that at least one of them will register for the conference and present the paper in case of acceptance. This registration must take place before the deadline for the camera-ready version of the paper and must be made in the category established by the organization.

Anonymity Period

The following rules and guidelines are intended to protect the integrity of the double-blind review and ensure that submissions are reviewed fairly. The rules refer to the period of anonymity, which goes from 1 month before the submission deadline until the date your work is accepted or rejected. Works withdrawn during this period will no longer be subject to these rules.

Please note that while you are not prohibited from making a non-anonymous version available online prior to the start of the anonymity period, this makes the double-blind review more difficult to maintain and therefore we encourage you to wait until the end of the anonymity period.

Important dates (all deadlines are 11:59 p.m. UTC-12:00 - anywhere on Earth!)

Submission system

Long and short papers should be submitted as PDF files via the JEMS system (https://jems.sbc.org.br/) by the deadline indicated above.
