EACL 2014
The 14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics
Gothenburg, Sweden
26-30 April 2014

Demonstrations Chair: Marko Tadić (University of Zagreb, Faculty of
Humanities and Social Sciences)

The EACL 2014 Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations
Program. This program is primarily to encourage the early exhibition of
research prototypes, but interesting mature systems are also
eligible. Commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate
in the Demonstration program.


We would like to encourage the submission of proposals for
demonstrations of software related to any areas of computational
linguistics and natural language processing. Areas of interest include,
but are not limited to:

- Natural language processing systems, including
  + Dialog systems and interfaces
  + Machine translation systems and translation aids
  + Message and narrative understanding systems
  + Language-oriented information retrieval and information extraction
- Application systems using embedded language technology components
- Reusable components (parsers, generators, taggers, speech
- Software tools for facilitating linguistic research
- Software for demonstrating or evaluating computational linguistics
- Aids for teaching computational linguistics concepts.


Demo Proposals consist of the following parts, which should all be sent
using the EACL 2014 sub-conference submission procedure at

- An abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated, not to exceed
  four pages formatted according to the EACL 2014 style guidelines
  (, including title,
  authors, full contact information, references and acknowledgements.

- A detailed description of hardware and software requirements expected
  to be provided by the local organizer. Demonstrators are encouraged to
  be flexible in their requirements (possibly with different demos for
  different logistical situations). Please state what you can bring
  yourself and what you absolutely must have provided. We will do our
  best to provide equipment and resources but nothing can be guaranteed
  at this point beyond space and power. Please contact the demo chair at
  one of the addresses below for any specific questions.

- At least one author of each accepted demo paper must register for and
  attend the conference, and demonstrate the system during the demo


Proposals should be submitted by 10 January 2014 using the EACL 2014
START web page for Demos:

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to
computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution,
presentation, and user friendliness, as well as potential logistical


Further details on the the demonstrations sessions will be determined
and provided at a later date.


- Demo proposal submissions due: 10 January 2014
- Notification to authors: 1 February 2014
- Camera-ready due: 15 February 2014
- EACL conference dates: 26-30 April 2014
