PRELIMINARY CALL FOR SOFTWARE DEMONSTRATIONS
Language Technologies 2001:
Demonstrations Chair: Ronnie W. Smith (East Carolina University)
The NAACL 2001 Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations Program. This program is primarily to encourage the early exhibition of research prototypes, but interesting mature systems are also eligible (commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in the Demonstration program, and should be arranged as part of the NAACL 2001 Exhibit Program)
We would like to encourage the submission of proposals for demonstrations of software related to any areas of computational linguistics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Demo Proposals consist of the following parts, which should all be sent to the Demo Chair (electronic submissions preferred).
- An abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated, not to exceed two pages, including title, authors, full contact information, references and acknowledgements.
- A detailed description of hardware and software requirements expected to be provided by the local organizer. Demonstrators are encouraged to be flexible in their requirements (possibly with different demos for different logistical situations). Please state what you can bring yourself and what you absolutely must have provided. We will do our best to provide equipment and resources but nothing can be guaranteed at this point beyond space and power. Please contact the demo chair at one of the addresses below for any specific questions.
- A "Script Outline" of the demo presentation, including accompanying narrative, and either a web address for accessing the demo or visual aids (e.g., screen-shots, snapshots, or sketches). No more than 6 pages, total.
Proposals should be submitted by March 2, to the NAACL-2001 Demonstrations Chair. Please submit your proposals and any inquiries to:

Department of Computer Science
East Carolina University
Greenville, NC 27858 USA
phone: +1 (252) 328-1906
fax: +1 (252) 328-6414
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution, presentation, and user friendliness, as well as potential logistical constraints.
