Authors (PhD students and young doctors who got their PhD in the last

unpublished work. Papers will be evaluated by at least two reviewers.
The criteria mainly taken into account will be:

- the importance and originality of the contribution
- the scientific and technical correctness of the work
- the comparison with related works
- the organisation and the clarity of the presentation
- the relevance of the work to the main topics of the conference

The selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings by
Louvain University Press. The proceedings will be given to participants
at the begining of the conference.


The submissions must be emailed as an attachment to the organising
committee (recital at tedm.ucl.ac.be) before December 19 2005. The email
must contain the title of the paper, the first author's name,
affiliation, postal & electronic address and telephone & fax.

Joint submission of the same paper to both TALN and Récital is not
allowed. However, one can be author/co-author of another paper presented
at TALN.


The submitted paper must not exceed 10 pages using Times 12 and single
spacing, figures, examples and references included (roughly 3,000 words).
The proposals for posters must not exceed 3 pages.

All the papers must be in A4 Format (and not US Letter). The stylesheets
(LateX & Word) will soon be availlable on the conference web site.
