Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 08-Apr-2013

Meeting Description:

The ACL 2013 System Demonstration Programme Committee invites participation in the Demonstrations Programme, to be held during the 51st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics.

System Demonstrations Co-Chairs:

Miriam Butt, University of Konstanz
Sarmad Hussain, Al-Khawarizmi Institute of Computer Science

Call for Papers:

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 Programme and should be arranged as part of the Exhibit Programme. 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 proceedings.

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 website.

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.

Important Dates:

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

Submission will be electronic in PDF format through the START conference system.
