ACL-HLT 2011: FINAL Call for System Demonstrations

June 19 - 24, 2011
Portland, Oregon

Submission deadline: February 18, 2011

Invitation for Submissions

The ACL-HLT 2011 System Demonstration Program Committee invites proposals
for the Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early
research prototypes and interesting mature systems.

PLEASE NOTE: Commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate
in the Demonstrations Program, and should be arranged as part of the
Exhibit Program.

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:


The systems may be of the following kinds:

* Natural Language Processing systems or system components
* Application systems using language technology components
* Software tools for computational linguistics research
* Software for demonstration or evaluation
* 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.

Each demo will be complemented by a poster at the conference and will be
allocated 6 pages in the conference proceedings.

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 will also be helpful.

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.

Submission Information

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-HLT 2011 style guidelines announced on the
conference website.

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.

The deadline for submissions is February 18, 2011 (11:59pm Pacific
Standard Time). Submission will be electronic in PDF format through the
START system at:
