CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS
Note that this CFP has been revised
as of 02/21/2003.
Please read it carefully.
Demonstrations of Human Language Technology at HLT-NAACL 03 are encouraged,
and are expected to provide an enriching complement to the paper and poster
presentations. We currently expect that most demonstrations will be presented
using a "science fair" approach, where a number of demonstrations will be set
up and run simultaneously in a suitable room. In addition, for a small number
of especially interesting and polished demonstrations, there will be a
plenary, presentation-style demo session.
Two volumes of proceedings will be produced; one for full papers and a
another for short papers (late-breaking results), posters, and demonstration
Requirements: Submissions must describe existing demonstrations and should
include a description of the application, overall system architecture,
discussion of novel technical components, and performance assessment.
Submission of a demonstration abstract 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 demonstrations will illustrate concepts that are
described in companion papers. For a list of topics, see the call for full papers.
Format: Submissions must be electronic and in PDF, should not
exceed two (2) pages (including references), Submissions should
include author names and affiliations, and reviewing is not blind.
Submission must follow the HLT-NAACL formatting guidelines for
camera-ready copies, available on the website.
Submissions must be in
camera-ready format; see
Submissions that are not in PDF or are incorrectly formatted
may be rejected on that basis.
Images and Video Clips: Proposers are encouraged to include a
screen shot or other illustrative figure. For reviewing purposes,
authors may supply a hyperlink to images or to video clips
illustrating a component of the demo. The online submissions system
will allow specification of a URL for images and demonstration clips.
To include more than one image or clip, create a special web page that
has links only to these images and clips (do not make the reviewers
look through a web page that contains other information as well).
Images and video clips from some accepted demos will be included in the CD-ROM
version of the proceedings.
Reviewing: Reviewing of demos will not be blind. The reviewers will be asked
to assess demos in terms of the technical merit and novel aspects of the
technology behind the demonstration, as well as relevance to HLT interest
Procedure: Submissions will be made via the HLT-NAACL website.
Reviewing will be done via email.
Demonstration presenters will need to bring their own hardware, and
will be asked to provide information as to their requirements for table space,
power, telephone lines, internet connections, and other logistics.
Note new deadline date for demos.
Proposals for Demonstrations are due on March 20, 2003.
