EACL 2006 First Call for POSTERS AND SYSTEM DEMONSTRATIONS
11th Meeting of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
April 3rd - 7th 2006
* * * Submission deadline: December 6, 2005 * * *
The European Association of Computational Linguistics invites the
submission of posters and system demonstrations for its 11th meeting.
The areas of interest for posters and demos are the same as those
mentioned in the call for full papers.
POSTERS should present work in progress, project status reports,
unevaluated results or system summaries (with or without demos). In
the programme of the conference there will be sessions reserved for
posters. Each poster will be allocated 4 pages in a companion volume
in the conference proceedings.
DEMONSTRATIONS should showcase implemented systems in any area of
computational linguistics. Each demo will be allocated 4 pages in a
companion volume in the conference proceedings.
Developers should outline the design of their system and provide
sufficient details to allow the evaluation of its validity, quality,
and relevance to computational linguistics. Pointers to web sites
running a demo preview will also be helpful.
Demo submissions should also clearly indicate if any computer
equipment is expected to be provided by the local organizer. If so,
please specify desired hardware platform, hard disk and memory
capacity, operating system and other software needed in order to run
the demo. If you are bringing your own laptop, you should instead
request a video projector if you need one, providing details about PC
type, screen resolution, etc.
The reviewing of the submissions will not be blind. It will be conducted
by an international panel of experts. Final decisions on the program
will be made by the poster and demo co-chairs.
Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed four (4) pages, including references. We strongly
recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style
files tailored for this year's conference, available from
this page. A description of the format will
also be available in case you are unable to use these style files
directly. Submissions must conform to the official EACL-06 style
guidelines, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that do not
conform to these styles including font size restrictions. Submissions
should be in PDF format and must include all fonts, so that the
submission will print (not just view) anywhere.
Contrary to what has been anncounced earlier, reviewing for the
poster and demo session will not be blind. Your submission can
specify the names and affiliations of the authors.
The deadline for submissions is 11:59pm (23:59) GMT December 6,
2005. Submissions submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
