The ACL-IJCNLP-09 Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early research prototypes and interesting mature systems. Commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in the Demonstrations Program, and should be arranged as part of the Exhibit Program.

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 submission: http://www.acl-ijcnlp-2009.org/main/callforpapers.html

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 resesarch * Software for demonstration or evaluation * Development tools

Demo proposals consist of the following parts, which should all be sent to the Demo Chairs. Please use the main ACL-IJCNLP paper formatting guidelines.

service requirements expected to be provided by the local organizer.

The entire proposal should not be more than four pages.
