This document provides a basic template for the 2-page extended abstract and some submission guidelines. Including an abstract is optional, as the document itself is an extended abstract. If included, an abstract should be a single paragraph.

# Introduction
We have based this SDSS template almost entirely on the template for
the annual conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), whose template includes the following paragraph of credits:
> Okay to use \small inside quotation environment ONLY
This document has been adapted from the instructions for earlier ACL
proceedings, including those for ACL-2012 by Maggie Li and Michael
White, those from ACL-2010 by Jing-Shing Chang and Philipp Koehn,
those for ACL-2008 by Johanna D. Moore, Simone Teufel, James Allan,
and Sadaoki Furui, those for ACL-2005 by Hwee Tou Ng and Kemal
Oflazer, those for ACL-2002 by Eugene Charniak and Dekang Lin, and
earlier ACL and EACL formats. Those versions were written by several
people, including John Chen, Henry S. Thompson and Donald
Walker. Additional elements were taken from the formatting
instructions of the {\em International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence}.
# Methods
In preparing the extended abstract, we strongly encourage using the same four section headings seen here, namely, Introduction, Methods, Data (or Results), and Discussion (or Conclusions). Use of subsections is at the authors' discretion; see Section \@ref(info-on-sections).
## Font Sizes and Layout
Extended abstracts should be no more than two pages, including references, in 10-point Times Roman font and two-column format, and must be submitted as pdf documents.
^[Footnotes are also in smaller font. See Table \@ref(fontsizes) for a list of font sizes.]
Both \LaTeX and MS Word templates may be downloaded by visiting the conference website:
Margins should not be altered from those used in the template files.
\hline \bf Type of Text & \bf Font Size & \bf Style \\ \hline
paper title & 15 pt & bold \\
author names & 12 pt & bold \\
author affiliation & 12 pt & \\
the word ``Abstract'' & 12 pt & bold \\
section titles & 12 pt & bold \\
document text & 10 pt &\\
captions & 10 pt & \\
abstract text & 10 pt & \\
bibliography & 10 pt & \\
footnotes & 9 pt & \\

## Sections {#info-on-sections}
### Numbering Sections
As shown here, all sections, sub-sections, and sub-subsections are numbered.
## Citations
Use pandoc markdown citations like [@LaVange2019; @Nussbaum2018; @Wasserstein2016]
## Footnotes
# Data/Results
We encourage the selective use of tables and/or figures as appropriate.
## Graphics and Tables
Place figures and tables in the paper near where they are first discussed, rather than at the end, if possible. It is acceptable that wide illustrations may run across both columns. The use of color is allowed in extended abstract graphics.
\caption{Ironically, Thomas Bayes was never asked to provide additional
simulation studies in the Results sections of his papers.}
## Captions
Provide a caption below every figure and table; number each one
sequentially in the form shown in Figure \@ref(bayespic) and
Table \@ref(fontsizes).
# Discussion/Conclusions
## Appendices and Acknolwedgement
Please avoid the use of appendices and acknowledgements as separate sections. Any pertinent material should be included in the body of the extended abstract rather than in an appendix. If acknowledgements are necessary, then they should be made using footnotes.
## Computer Code
If you wish to provide links to accompanying code, this is allowable because SDSS encourages best practices for reproducible research. However, all conclusions and exposition relevant to the refereeing process should appear in the body of the extended abstract; furthermore, we cannot guarantee that code will be checked or even consulted during the refereeing process.
## Refereeing Decisions
It is expected that accepted papers will be presented in person at SDSS in Pittsburgh from June 4 to 6, 2020. Accepted papers' authors will be notified in plenty of time to make registration and travel arrangements and for papers not accepted to submit an e-poster to the conference if they so choose.
