NAACL-HLT 2012 Call for Demonstrations

The NAACL-HLT 2012 Program Committee invites proposals for  
Demonstrations. We encourage submissions from early prototype  
demonstrations to mature production-ready systems;
of particular interest are demos which can be openly used by NAACL-HLT  
attendees from the conference website before and during the  
conference. All accepted demos will present a
brief "advertisement" for the demo during a plenary session and  
actually show off their systems at a later designated demo session  
(with an optional poster).

= Areas of Interest
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following types  
of systems:

End-to-end systems:
-	Mobile applications in any language technology area
-	Speech-based systems (e.g., recognition, text-to-speech)
-	Machine translation
-	Question Answering
-	Dialogue interfaces (e.g., Siri++)

Systems aiding research and development:
-	Data visualization
-	Error analysis tools
-	System evaluation
-	Text mining for knowledge acquisition (or data mining)

Systems supporting learning or education:
-	Visual interactive aids for students
-	Tutorial agents

= Format for Submission

Please use the main ACL paper style (http://www.naaclhlt2012.org/downloads/naaclhlt2012.pdf 
). The entire proposal must not be more than four pages. Please note  
that no hardware or software will be provided by the local organizer.
Demo proposals consist of the following parts:
  -	An extended abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated,  
including title, authors, full contact information, references, and  
acknowledgements.
  -	A "script outline" of the demo presentation, including  
accompanying narrative, and either a Web address for accessing the  
demo or visual aids (e.g., screenshots, snapshots, or diagrams).

= Submissions Procedure

Proposals must be submitted electronically by February 9, 2012 using  
submission software that will be available at https://www.softconf.com/naaclhlt2012/papers/ 
.

= Further Details

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to  
computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution,  
presentation, as well as potential logistical constraints.  Accepted  
submissions will be allocated four pages in the Companion Volume to  
the Proceedings of the Conference.

Further details on the date, time, and format of the demonstration  
session(s) will be determined and provided at a later date. Please  
send any inquiries to the demonstration co-chairs Aria Haghighi (me at aria42.com 
) or Yaser Al-onaizan (onaizan at us.ibm.com).
