INVITATION FOR SUBMISSION
The ACL-IJCNLP 2015 System Demonstration Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early research prototypes and mature systems. Areas of interest include all topics related to theoretical and applied computational linguistics, such as (but not limited to) the topics listed for the conference paper submission: http://acl2015.org/
Possible demonstrations include:
» Natural Language Processing systems or system components
» Applications using language technology components
» Software tools for computational linguistics research
» Software for visualization or evaluation of Natural Language Processing
» Development tools
We would like to strongly encourage demonstrations of industrial systems as long as they prove technologically innovative given the current state of the art of theory and applied research in computational linguistics. PLEASE NOTE: Commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in the Demonstrations Program and should be arranged as part of the Exhibit Program.
Each demo will be complemented by a poster at the conference and will be allocated 6 pages in the conference proceedings.
Submissions may consist of 6 pages (including references) and should follow the guidelines for authors of the main conference track, which is available on the conference website. All submissions must conform to the official ACL-IJCNLP 2015 style guidelines announced on the conference website.
Developers should outline the design of their system and provide sufficient details to allow the evaluation of its validity, quality, and relevance to computational linguistics. Pointers to web sites running a demo preview are encouraged.
Demo submissions should also clearly indicate if any computer equipment is expected to be provided by the local organizer. If so, please specify desired hardware platform, hard disk and memory capacity, operating system and other software needed in order to run the demo.
Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Note that we are aware that it is not always possible to completely anonymize submissions for system demonstrations, but we ask that you anonymize to an extent that is do-able within reasonable parameters (i.e, we do not expect you to rent an anonymous server to run your demonstrations on).
The deadline for submissions is March 23, 2015 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time). Submission will be electronic in PDF format through the START conference system at https://www.softconf.com/acl2015/demos/
