Meeting Description:

PolTAL 2014 is the ninth in the series of the TAL conferences, following JapTAL 2012 (Kanazawa, Japan), IceTAL 2010 (Reykjavík, Iceland), GoTAL 2008 (Gothenburg, Sweden), FinTAL 2006 (Turku, Finland), EsTAL 2004 (Alicante, Spain), PorTAL 2002 (Faro, Portugal), VexTAL 1999 (Venice, Italy) and FracTAL 1997 (Besançon, France).

The main purpose of the TAL conference series is to bring together scientists representing linguistics, computer science and related fields, sharing a common interest in the advancement of computational linguistics and natural language processing.

The conference is organised and hosted by the Institute of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Keynote Speakers:

Johan Bos, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
Ann Copestake, University of Cambridge, UK
Mark Steedman, University of Edinburgh, UK

Call for Papers:


We welcome submissions both from the academia and the industry on any topic that is of interest to the NLP community, particularly encouraging research emphasising multidisciplinary and linguistic aspects of Computational Linguistics.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three programme committee members. The submissions will be judged on relevance, originality, technical quality and presentation. Papers can be submitted in two categories:

- Full papers, describing substantial research with well-evaluated results
- Short papers, typically describing ongoing research and preliminary results

At the conference, full papers will be presented as talks and short papers will be presented as posters.

More information will be available in December 2013.


Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics and natural language and speech processing, including, but not limited to:

- Word segmentation, tagging and chunking
- Syntax, parsing and grammar formalisms
- Lexical semantics and word sense disambiguation
- Compositional semantics and semantic parsing
- Distributional and model-theoretic approaches to semantics
- Pragmatics, discourse and dialogue
- Linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language
- Language resources and tools
- Lexicon, lexical databases and ontologies
- Corpus linguistics and corpus-based language modelling
- Information retrieval, question answering and information extraction
- Generation and summarisation
- Machine translation, translation aids and multilingual systems
- Dialogue systems and multimodal systems

As well as:

- Phonetics, phonology and morphology
- Speech recognition and speech synthesis
- Simulation and visualisation
- Knowledge acquisition and representation
- Text and speech interfaces
- Text and speech classification
- Systems evaluation
Important Dates:

1 December 2013: Submission open
1 March 2014: Registration open
30 March 2014: Submission deadline
10 May 2014: Acceptance notifications sent out
1 June 2014: Camera-ready papers ready
