Call for Interactive Poster/Demo Sessions

ACL-03 features special sessions for interactive posters and demonstrations. Poster/Demo presentations present original and significant work in progress, on-going research projects with novel ideas/applications, or late-breaking results that are best communicated in an interactive format.

Interactive Poster/Demo sessions provide a forum of academic and technical exchanges and are completely separated from the Industrial Exhibition that takes place also on the conference site.

The topics of interest cover the same area of the main conference. See the full paper submission information.

The authors should submit an original paper (of no more than 4 pages in ACL format) that describes and emphasizes the problem of the research and the novelty of the methods or theories being used. Presentations with demos should outline the design of their systems and provide sufficient details to allow the evaluation of their validity, quality and usefulness. They should also describe the equipments required for the demonstration.

Interactive Poster/Demo presentations will be given a booth for showing posters and giving a demo on a laptop computer or via a projector. The Poster/Demo papers are allocated 4 pages which will be included in the companion volume of the conference proceedings.

All the Poster/Demo submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee.

Submission Information

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. A description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use these style files directly. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity should be avoided. The papers with a demo that requires a special consideration should describe the requirements just before the introductory session of the paper.

Submission Procedure

All papers must be submitted electronically at the web address. The papers must be submitted no later than 12 noon Central Time (8PM GMT) on May 1st, 2003. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
