3. Demo papers should be no more than two (2) pages in length, including references, and should describe implemented systems which are of relevance to the NLG community. Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo of their system during INLG 2020.

A paper accepted for presentation at INLG 2020 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Dual submission to other conferences is permitted, provided that authors clearly indicate this in the ''Acknowledgements'' section of the paper when submitted. If the paper is accepted at both venues, the authors will need to choose which venue to present at, since they can not present the same paper twice.
