Demo Submission Deadline: September 7, 2012 (EXTENDED TO Sept 24, 2012)

The IberSPEECH2012 organizers invite submissions for demonstrations.

The IberSPEECH2012 demonstration track aims at bringing together Academia and Industry working on processing of the Iberian Languages and creating a forum where more than written or spoken descriptions of research are available. Thus, demos should allow participants 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 Iberian languages, such as (but not limited to) the topics listed for the conference paper submission (http://iberspeech2012.ii.uam.es/index.php/call-for-papers).

 

SUBMISSIONS

Submissions should consist of a non-anonymous brief description document (with up to five (5) pages of content, references not included). 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 speech and language processing component in the proposed system.  Supporting material, such as videos of the demonstration or direct link to web-based applications are desirable. Description documents should be written in English following the LNAI format  (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and submitted to the Demo Special session of the conference submission system (https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/IS2012/).

 

PRESENTATION FORMAT

Accepted demos will be presented on tabletops 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 sponsored by Microsoft will be given out to the best demo presented during the conference.
