NAACL HLT 09 Call for Demonstrations
The NAACL HLT 2009 Program Committee
invites proposals for the
Demonstration Program to be held June 1-3, 2009 at
University of Colorado at Boulder.
We encourage both the
exhibition of early research prototypes and
interesting mature systems.
Commercial sales and marketing activities
are not appropriate in the
Demonstration Program, and should be
arranged as part of the Exhibit
We invite proposals for two types of demonstrations:
I: theater-style, as part of the regular program
- Type II: poster-style,
where demos are to be presented on
table-tops in sessions scheduled for a
specific time slot.
Submission of a demonstration proposal on a
particular topic does
not preclude or require a separate submission of a
paper on that
topic; it is possible that some but not all of the
will illustrate concepts that are described in companion
Areas of Interest:
Areas of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following types
of systems, some of which have been
demonstrated at recent ACL
- End-to-end natural language
- User interfaces for monolingual and multilingual
access systems, including retrieval, summarization, and QA
- Voice search interfaces
- Dialogue and conversational
- Multimodal systems utilizing language technology
technology on mobile devices
- Applications using embedded language
- Meeting capture and analysis systems utilizing
- Natural language processing systems for medical
- Assistive applications of language technology
- Software for evaluating natural language systems and
- Aids for teaching computational linguistics concepts
Software tools for facilitating computational linguistics research
components (parsers, generators, speech recognizers, etc.)
- Tools that
assist in the development of other NLP applications
Format for Submission:
Demo proposals consist of the
following parts, which should all be sent
to the Demonstration Co-Chairs.
Please use the main ACL paper formatting
guidelines. Please note that no
hardware or software will be provided by
the local organizer.
