Call for Demos

Motivation

The workshop on South and Southeast Asian Natural Languages Processing (SSANLP) invites applications for demonstrations showing implemented systems of innovative research on South and Southeast Asian Natural Language Processing. The workshop is particularly interested in prototype implementations and systems that are related to the topics of the workshop. Accepted demonstrations will be published in the workshop proceedings and need to be presented at a session in the workshop. At least one author must be registered at the workshop to demonstrate the system.

Topics

The topics of interest for SSANLP workshop include (but not limited to) the following related to the morphology and segmentation of South and Southeast Asian languages:

Author Instructions

Authors are invited to submit demo papers of their substantial, original, novel, completed and new research work relevant to the topics of the workshop. Please submit a four pages description plus additional pages for references of your demo discussing briefly the working and the architecture of the system, the uniqueness and innovative aspect of the system, and its comparison with related systems in the area.

All submissions must follow and conform to the official COLING 2010 Style guidelines to be announced on the conference website www.coling-2010.org

Reviewing of demonstrations will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Dual submission policy: If you have submitted or plan to submit your work in other venues, then you must indicate this fact during submission to SSANLP. Note that if your Demo is accepted in SSANLP then you must withdraw the same Demo from other venues in order to get it published in the proceedings of SSANLP.
