The Thirteenth Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics

Avignon, France
April 23-27, 2012
Call for demos

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 applied.


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

3. any URLs that link to screen-shots, live demos, or related

4. equipment or facilities required for the system demonstration


Demos will be blind peer-reviewed by two members of the Demos Program
Committee, who will judge the originality, significance, quality, and
clarity of each submission.
