LACL 2012 : Call for System Demonstrations

Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics
July 2-4, 2012
LINA, Nantes, France

LACL'2012 is the 7th edition of the series of International Conferences
on Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics.

It will take place in Nantes, France on July 2-4, 2012.  This conference
addresses the use of type theoretic, proof theoretic, model theoretic
and other logically based formal methods for describing natural language
syntax, semantics and pragmatics, as well as the implementation of
natural language processing software relying on such methods.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, 
but are not limited to:

    * logical foundation of syntactic formalisms
    * logics for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and
    * applications of these models to natural language processing.

In order to stimulate the interest in applications, the conference will
for the first time propose a System demonstration session.

We are seeking for demonstrations of prototype or professional
applications/tools in the domain of computational linguistics relevant
to the LACL topics of interest.
Demo extended abstracts must be at most of four pages using the
 standard LNCS Springer LaTeX style (see authors instructions at 
Developers should outline the design of their system and provide
sufficient details to allow the evaluation of its validity, quality, and
relevance to LACL topics. Pointers to web sites running a demo 
preview will also be helpful.	
Each system will be shortly presented in a special conference session
and during the Demo Session. It may also be completed by a poster.
Participants should use their own laptop for the demos. The organizers
should be contacted in case of any special requirements.

The demo extended abstracts should be submitted in PDF format by email
at the address lacl2012-demo at The submissions will be
reviewed by the Demo program committee using the standards of excellence
associated with the LACL conferences.  A single review evaluation
process will be based on novelty, relevance, and scientific
contribution. The selected submissions will be published in the Demo
Session proceedings on the conference site.

Important dates:

Submission deadline: April 30, 2012
Notification: May 11, 2012
