This special issue of the journal TAL invites articles that summarize the current state of knowledge in one of the fields of natural language processing.

The article will discuss research done in the chosen field and will present how this field has evolved to the most recent advances. The paper must be written in a clear and rigorous way so as to be accessible to readers of the journal TAL who are not specialists in the subject of the article. It should provide a perspective on the work presented, allowing the reader to understand the relation between the various lines of research.

The topics covered are those usually targeted by the non-thematic issues of the journal, i.e. all aspects of natural processing of written, spoken and signed languages and of computational linguistics. The theme of the article may be identified within the following fields (non-exhaustive list):

- Computational models of language, statistical learning and modeling - Lexical and terminological resources - Linguistic tools (tokenization, tagging, parsing, etc.) - Intermodality and multimodality - Language multiplicity and diversity, multilingual processing, translation - Semantics, discourse, pragmatics, comprehension - Information access and text mining - Text generation and synthesis - Speech or sign language recognition/synthesis - Dialogue - Evaluation - Explicability and reproducibility - NLP in interaction with other disciplines (e.g. digital humanities) - NLP and ethics

Note the intention to submit date (dates below): the authors will have to submit an abstract presenting the topic of their article. This is required for the selection of external reviewers specialized in the subject matter.


Articles are written in English or French. Submissions in English are accepted only if one of the co-authors is not French speaking.
