August 4 - 9, 2013

Sofia, Bulgaria

Important Dates

• April 8, 2013: Paper submissions due (submission deadline is 11:59pm PST)
• May 15, 2013: Notification of acceptance
• May 29, 2013: Camera-ready copy due
• August 4-9, 2013: ACL 2013

Invitation for Submissions

The ACL 2013 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

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 2013 style guidelines announced on the conference

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 April 8, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific
Standard Time). Submission will be electronic in PDF format through
the START conference system.
