Call for Papers:

The demo track allows researchers and practitioners to demonstrate their new and innovative systems while interacting with their audience in an informal setting. Demos' submissions 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 make clear which aspects of the system will be demonstrated, and how the system is used to solve practical problems. It should include a discussion of the implementation and case studies of how the system is applied.


At least one author of each accepted demo paper must register for and attend the conference, and demonstrate the system during the demo sessions (please see the Conference Policies). Authors of accepted demos may also be required to demonstrate their systems at additional events during the conference. Each accepted demo paper will be allocated four pages in the conference proceedings; no extra pages can be purchased. Demo authors are not required to transfer copyright.

Submission Procedure:

Authors of demos should submit an original paper describing their proposed presentation. The length of the paper is limited to 4 pages excluding references which are unlimited. The submission should be in line with the EACL 2012 main conference formatting styles and instructions for authors.

Proposals for demos should provide:

1. An overview of what the demonstration aims to achieve
2. How the demo illustrates novel ideas
3. Any URLs that link to screen-shots, live demos, or related information
4. Equipment or facilities required for the system demonstration


Demos will be blind peer-reviewed by two members of the Demos Program Committee, who will judge the originality, significance, quality, and clarity of each submission.
