Instructions for the camera-ready

Task organizers are asked to modify the title of the report as:

TASK_NAME @ EVALITA2020: TITLE

Participants are asked to modify the title of the report as:

TEAM_NAME @ TASK_NAME: TITLE

While changing a title is easy, things are tricky with cross-references. It should be sufficient to change the title of your report and the titles of the papers you cited, if any. Feel free to communicate with the organizers/participants, especially if you already exchanged bibliographic references, which may result outdated.

SUBMISSION

Please upload one ZIP file containing the camera ready in PDF together with ALL source files (styles, images, etc.) needed to create the PDF file (.docx for Word and .tex and all the other files for LaTeX) on EasyChair: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=clicit2020 (select the EVALITA 2020 [TASK NAME] Track, or "Task descriptions" for the task organizers).
