Types of submissions
This year again only one format of papers: short papers (6 pages of content plus an unlimited number of pages for references).
TALN welcomes two types of communications:
• papers presenting original research work;
• position statements presenting a point of view on the state of NLP research.
When submitting their paper, authors will be asked to indicate whether, if solicited by the program committee, they will be prepared (or not) to convert it (in accordance with the calendar) into a long article (12 pages + unlimited number of pages for references). Still adhering to the "short paper" format, and adapting as needed to keep within the six-page limit, authors can submit translations in French of articles under submission to an international conference. In this case, a mention "translation" should be added when submitting the article. This type of submission will not be considered for conversion to a long paper.
The selected papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by the program committee. All the selected papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference.
Each submission will be reviewed by three specialists of the domain. The following criteria apply:
• relevance to the conference topics,
• substance and originality of the contribution,
• correctness of the technical and scientific content,
• critical discussion of the results, in particular with respect to the state of the art,
• positioning of the work in the context of international research,
• organization and clarity of presentation.
For position statements, the following qualities are emphasized:
• scope of the presentation and consideration of the state of the art,
• originality and impact of the presented point of view.
A committee composed of members of the TAL (Traitement Automatique des Langues) Journal Editorial Board and of the TALN Program Committee will select, among the accepted papers, one paper (TALN Award). The best papers will be invited to submit an extended version in the TAL journal.
Submitted papers must conform to the official guidelines and style that are described in the style files ( https://www.irit.fr/pfia2019/taln-recital/taln-recital-soumission/ <https://www.irit.fr/pfia2019/taln-recital/taln-recital-soumission/>) and must be in the PDF format.
Web site for submissions: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=taln19 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=taln19>
Submissions in English are acceptable if one of the authors is not a French speaker.
Since the review process is double-blind, the submitted papers must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references and project names that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Authors should use instead citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Acknowledgements should not be included in the first submission, and can be added instead to the final version of a paper after acceptance.
