The NAACL 2015 Program Committee invites proposals for Demonstrations to be displayed at NAACL HLT 2015. We encourage submissions from early prototype demonstrations to mature production-ready systems; of particular interest are demos that can be openly used by NAACL attendees from the conference website before and during the conference. All accepted demos will be published in a companion volume of the conference proceedings, and will be presented during a demo session (with an optional poster).

Areas of Interest

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following types of systems:

Format for Submission

Please use the main NAACL paper style ( and submission guidelines. At a minimum, demo proposals should include the following:

As the reviewing will be blind, proposals 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 previously showed (Smith, 1991) …”. In addition, please do not post your proposals on the web until after the review process is complete.

The entire proposal must not be more than four pages. We will reject without review any papers that do not follow the official style guidelines, anonymity conditions and page limits. Also, please note that no hardware or software will be provided by the local organizers.

Submissions Procedure

Proposals must be submitted electronically by February 13, 2015 using submission software available at

Important Dates

All times are 11:59pm PST on the deadline day

Further Details

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 four pages in the Companion Volume to the Proceedings of the Conference. Further details on the date, time, and format of the demonstration session(s) will be determined and provided at a later date.

Please send any inquiries to the demonstration co-chairs:
