RECITAL 2014 : First Call for Papers
------------------------------------

16th Rencontre des Étudiants Chercheurs en Informatique pour le Traitement
Automatique des Langues (RECITAL)

(Natural Language Processing Students Conference)

Faculté Saint Charles, Aix Marseille Université (Marseilles, France), 
July 1st to 4th 2014.


Important dates
-----------------

- Submission deadline : Saturday, April 5th 2014
- Acceptance notification : Saturday, May 3rd 2014
- Camera ready : Saturday, May 17th 2014

Presentation
------------

RECITAL 2014, the annual meeting for young researchers associated to the 
TALN
conference, will take place in Marseilles (France) on July 1st to 4th.
RECITAL provides a venue for young researchers investigating topics in
Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing to present their
research, meet potential advisors, and receive feedback from the research
community. Authors must be students (Master or PhD) or young researchers 
who
recently completed their phd. RECITAL 2014 will include oral and poster
presentations. The official language is French but English presentations 
and
papers are accepted for non-French-speaking authors.

Building on the success of the previous year, we are encouraging the 
submission
of research proposals and papers describing preliminary works 
(state-of-the-art,
first experiments, etc.). RECITAL's main goal is to support the work of 
young
researchers and facilitate their integration into our community. To this 
aim we enhance :

  - pedagogic reviews : authors should be able to understand their 
mistakes and
    correct them in order to improve the quality of their work;

  - positive reviews : it is never necessary to discourage a young 
researcher,
    watchwords will be encouraging/guiding;

  - direct exchange : all the reviews will be signed. Authors and 
reviewers are
    encouraged to discuss together during the conference.

A prize will be awarded to the author(s) of the best paper during the 
closing ceremony.
