the Association for Computational Linguistics

Avignon, France

EACL 2012 features a special session for demonstrations. Topics of
interest cover all aspects of computational linguistics, as outlined in
the main conference call for papers. Demos will be presented at specific
sessions from the main program of the conference. The demo track allows
researchers and practitioners to demonstrate their new and innovative
systems while interacting with their audience in an informal
setting. Demos’ submissions should be concerned with mature systems or
prototypes in which computational linguistics or NLP technologies are
used to solve practically important problems. Demo papers should make
clear which aspects of the system will be demonstrated, and how the
system is used to solve practical problems. It should include a
discussion of the implementation and case studies of how the system is

== Requirements ==
At least one author of each accepted demo paper must register for and
attend the conference, and demonstrate the system during the demo
sessions (please see the Conference Policies). Authors of accepted demos
may also be required to demonstrate their systems at additional events
during the conference.  Each accepted demo paper will be allocated four
pages in the conference proceedings; no extra pages can be purchased.
Demo authors are not required to transfer copyright.

== Submission Procedure ==
Authors of demos should submit an original paper describing their
proposed presentation. The length of the paper is limited to 4 pages
excluding references which are unlimited. The submission should be in
line with the EACL 2012 main conference formatting styles and
instructions for authors.

Proposals for demos should provide:
  1. an overview of what the demonstration aims to achieve
  2. how the demo illustrates novel ideas
