Program Committee Chairs Ruslan Mitkov, University of
Wolverhampton, UK Jong Park, KAIST, Korea

Call for Demonstrations

The IJCNLP 2013 Demonstration Committee invites proposals for the
Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early
research prototypes and interesting mature systems. We also
welcome demo proposals related to submission to the main
conference. Commercial sales and marketing activities are
inappropriate for the Program.

AREAS OF INTEREST Areas of interest include all topics related to
theoretical and applied computational linguistics, such as (but
not limited to) the topics listed for the conference paper

The systems may be of the following kinds:
* Natural Language Processing systems or system components
* Application systems using language technology components
* Software tools for computational linguistics research
* Software for demonstration or evaluation
* Development tools

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSIONS Demo proposals consist of the following
parts, which should all be sent to the Demo Chairs. Please use
the main IJCNLP paper formatting guidelines. The entire proposal
should not be more than four pages.

* An extended abstract of the technical content to be
  demonstrated, including title, authors, full contact
  information, references, and acknowledgements.
* A "script outline" of the demo presentation, including
  accompanying narrative, and either a Web address for accessing
  the demo or visual aids (e.g., screenshots, snapshots, or
* A detailed description of the hardware, software and internet
  service requirements expected to be provided by the local

SUBMISSIONS PROCEDURE Submission procedure will be announced
later. The deadline for proposals is May 24, 2013. Submissions
will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to
computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution,
presentation, as well as potential logistical constraints.
Accepted submissions will be allocated maximum four pages in the
Companion Volume to the Proceedings of the Conference.

IMPORTANT DATES May 24, 2013: Demo proposal submission due July
8, 2013: Demo proposal acceptance notification August 9, 2013:
Demo paper camera ready due October 15-17: Conference

DEMONSTRATIONS CHAIRS Kentaro Torisawa (NICT, Japan) Hang Li

Call for Tutorials

IJCNLP 2013 seeks proposals for tutorials on all topics of
computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include areas
such as speech processing, information retrieval,
psycholinguistics and language issues in emerging domains such as
social media, bioinformatics, and processing of legal documents.
Especially encouraged are tutorials that introduce recent
advancements in cross-disciplinary areas such as network
analysis, machine learning, and grounding in language processing.

SUBMISSION DETAILS Proposals for tutorials should contain:
1.     A title and brief description of the tutorial content and
       its relevance to the NLP community (not more than 2
2.     A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the
       tutorial's core content can be covered in a three-hour
       slot (including a coffee break). In exceptional cases
       six-hour tutorial slots are available as well.
3.     A sample (and preferably all, if available) of the slides
       and any other material that will be used for the tutorial.
4.     The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email
       addresses of the tutorial instructors, including a
       one-paragraph statement of their research interests and
       areas of expertise.
5.     A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes,
       ifthe same or a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere;
       otherwise an estimate of the audience size.
6.     A description of special requirements for technical
       equipment (e.g., internet access).

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in a single PDF
file or a single plain ASCII text file no later than May 17, 2013
to tcc_(at)_ijcnlp2013.org.

The subject line should be: "IJCNLP 2013: TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".
