=================== CALL FOR DEMOS ==================== ======================================================= PROPOR'2012

The 10th International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese


Coimbra, Portugal April 17-20, 2012

Demo Submission Deadline: March, 2, 2012 =======================================================

The International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR) organizers invite submissions for demonstrations. Following the spirit of the Special Session of PROPOR 2008 and Demos Session of 2010, the PROPOR 2012 demonstration track aims at bringing together Academia and Industry and creating a forum where more than written or spoken descriptions of research are available. Thus, demos should allow attendees to try and test them during their presentation in a dedicated session adopting a more informal setting. Products, systems or tools are examples of acceptable demos. Both early-research prototypes and mature systems will be considered for presentation. The areas of interest include all topics related to theoretical and applied issues of written and spoken Portuguese, such as (but not limited to) the topics listed for the conference paper submission (http://www.propor2012.org/call.html).


Submissions should consist of a non-anonymous brief description document of up to three (3) pages of content including references. Developers must outline the main characteristics of their systems, provide sufficient details to allow its evaluation and give information on how they plan to demonstrate their systems. Developers are encouraged to focus their description on the relevance of the computational processing component of Portuguese language in the proposed system. Submitted documents should be written in English and sent by e-mail in PDF following the LNAI format to demos at propor2012.org. Accepted demos and the accompanying description document will be published in the conference website.


Accepted demos will be presented on table tops at a designated demo session with an optional accompanying poster. Developers should make sure they can run their demos properly. Thus, it is authors' responsibility to provide the necessary technical conditions (equipments) for the demo at the conference. Note that the local organizers will not provide any hardware or software. Free high-speed Internet access will be available. A Best Demo Award will be given out to the best demo presented during the conference. Further details on the date and time of the demonstration session(s) will be determined and provided at a later date.
