Being science literate is an important ability for people. It is one of the keys for critical thinking, objective decision-making and judgment of the validity and significance of findings and arguments, which allows discerning facts from fiction. However, scientific texts are often hard to understand as they require solid background knowledge and use tricky terminology. Although there were some recent efforts on text simplification, removing such understanding barriers between scientific texts and general public in an automatic manner is still an open challenge. SimpleText brings together researchers and practitioners working on the generation of simplified summaries of scientific texts. All perspectives on automatic science popularisation are welcome, including but not limited to: Natural Language Processing (NLP), Information Retrieval (IR), Linguistics, Scientific Journalism, etc.

We accept the following types of submissions:
– Regular papers of 10-12 standard pages length with an appropriate number of references.
– Short papers of 5-6 standard pages length with additional pages for references.
– Extended abstracts of 500-1000 words with bibliographic references. Bibliographic references are excluded from word count. Previously published papers can be accepted as extended abstracts (please, provide a reference to your previous work in this case).
