ACL 2007 Call for Demos and Posters

The Association for Computational Linguistics

45th Annual Meeting http://www.acl2007.org/ June 24-29 Prague, Czech Republic

Poster / Demos Chair: Sophia Ananiadou ( School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, UK)

ACL-07 features a special session for posters and demonstrations.

Topics of interest cover all aspects of computational linguistics, as outlined in the main conference call for papers. Posters and demos will be held on June 25 till June 27, at the main conference venue.

Posters should describe original work in progress, and present innovative methodologies used to solve a problem in computational linguistics or NLP. Demos 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 describe how the system is used to solve practical problems and should include a discussion of the implementation and case studies of how the system is applied.

Submission Procedure

Authors of posters and demos should submit an original paper (of no more than 4 pages in ACL07 format, http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/acl2007/styles/). In addition, authors of demos should submit a short (1-2 page) description of their proposed presentation.

Proposals for demos should provide:

  1. an overview of what the demonstration aims to achieve
  2. how the demo illustrates novel ideas or late-breaking results
  3. any URLs that link to screen-shots, live demos, or related information
  4. equipment or facilities required for the system demonstration

Authors must indicate if their submission is a Poster or Demo paper. Submission will be electronic, using the paper submission software that will be accessible through the conference web page. Papers must be submitted no later than 5pm US Eastern time March 1, 2007 (10pm GMT March 1, 2007). Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed. Please consult the submission web page for details of the submission procedure. Accepted submissions will be allocated 4 pages in the Companion Volume to the Proceedings of the Conference.
