Position papers presenting a point of view on the state of research in NLP

The official language for the conference is French. Submissions in English are accepted if a co-author is not French-speaking.
Papers should present new and unpublished work, thus, translations of already published papers are not accepted.

Selection criteria:

Authors should be students or young researchers who have supported their thesis since less than one year.
Publications with senior researchers (including thesis supervisors) should be submitted to the conference TALN
and not RÉCITAL. Submitting to both TALN and RÉCITAL is not allowed.

Authors are invited to submit new and unpublished work, that have not been published before. The submissions
will be evaluated by at least two specialists of the field. In particular, the following will be considered:

- Correction of the scientific and technical content,
- Situation of the work in the context of international research,
- Organization and clarity of the presentation,
- Consistency with the conference themes.

According to the program committee decision, work will be presented either orally or in poster session.
All articles selected, regardless of their format, will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submissions instructions:

Submission website :
The reviewing will be double-blind, which means that contributions must not include the names or affiliations of the authors.
In addition, self-references and project names that reveal the identity of authors, such as ''We have already demonstrated (Martin, 1991)'',
should be avoided. Authors should therefore give preference to quotations such as ''Martin has previously demonstrated (Martin, 1991)''.
Acknowledgements will be omitted in the submission, and may be added in the final version of the article in case of acceptance.

Program Committee:

President : Christophe Benzitoun
Co-president : Laurine Huber


The program committee will select an article for the RÉCITAL Award. This prize will be solemnly awarded at the end of the conference.
