The 12th meeting of student researchers in natural language processing (RECITAL 2010) will be held in Montreal, Canada on 19-22 July 2010. The conference is jointly organized by the Université de Montréal and the École Polytechnique de Montréal.
RECITAL is an annual NLP conference giving students and young researchers the opportunity to present and compare their research work. This conference will be held jointly with TALN and communications of both conferences will be published in the same proceedings.
The official conference language is French but English submissions are accepted for non French-speaking researchers.
Papers pertaining to all areas of NLP are welcome, including (but not restricted to):
- Information research and NLP, information extraction, automatic summarization, Q/A systems;
- Morphological automatic analysis, syntax, semantics, lexical semantics, speech;
- Machine translation and alignment;
- Human-to-machine communication in natural language;
- Automatic text generation and text planification;
- System evaluation;
- Resources acquisition and resource development (lexicon, ontology, grammars...);
- Formal approaches supporting NLP.
Authors must EXCLUSIVELY be PhD students, Master Degree students or young doctors who defended their PhD thesis less than a year ago. Submissions co-authored by confirmed researchers must be submitted to TALN, not to RECITAL.
Authors are invited to submit original research work. Submissions will be reviewed by at least two domain experts. Decisions will be based on the following criteria :
- Importance of contribution and originality;
- Scientific and technical content;
- Results discussion and comparison to previous work;
- Presentation organization and clarity;
- Relevance to the conference topics.
Papers will be selected for oral or poster presentations. All selected papers will be published in the proceedings and a prize for the best paper will be awarded.
