Call for Demonstrations

Selected Demos

Invitation of Submissions

In the spirit of the Special Session of PROPOR 2008, - Applications of Portuguese Speech and Language Technologies - aiming at bringing together Academia and Industry and creating a forum where more than written or spoken descriptions of research are available, PROPOR 2010 organizers and PROPOR Steering Committee decided to integrate a Session on Demonstrations in the program.

The PROPOR 2010 Organizers invite proposals for the Demonstrations Session. We encourage both university and industry communities from Portugal, Brazil and any other country working on the Portuguese Natural Language Processing and Speech Technology to submit proposals reporting their most recent products, systems, resources or tools for Portuguese.

Areas of interest include any topic of language and speech processing of Portuguese such as (but not limited to) the topics listed for conference paper submission.

The demonstrations may be of the following kinds:

Systems or system components
Application systems using speech and/or language technology components
Software tools for research
Software for demonstration or evaluation
Development tools

Submission Information

In order to submit your demonstration description, enter the JEMS conference management system, select the submission page for PROPOR2010, then fill in the online form, check out the topics of your paper and upload your file (.pdf format only).

The proposals must be 2 pages in English, non-blinded and following the LNAI format. Submissions should contain a brief description of the work, what is going to be demonstrated and how.

Demos should allow participants to try and test them during their presentation. It is authors' responsibility to provide the necessary technical conditions (equipments) for the demo at the conference. Products, systems, tools are examples of demos.

The accepted proposals will be included on the additional electronic proceedings (but not in the Springer LNCS) to be distributed to PROPOR 2010 participants.
