Instructions for authors


TIA 2011 solicits both regular papers, which present significant work, and short papers, which typically present work in progress or a smaller, focused contribution.The program committee may decide to change the category of a paper before acceptance.

Regular papers, in English or French, should not exceed 7 pages in ACL-HLT 2011 format (see below for LaTeX and MS Word style files), including figures, examples and references. The mode of presentation of long papers (orally or as posters) will be decided based on the nature rather than on the quality of the work.

Short papers should not exceed 4 pages in the same format as regular papers. They will also be presented orally or as posters at the conference depending on the nature of the work.

Authors should submit the papers in PDF through the TIA submission page at .

At the submission page, the author(s) must provide the following information:

  1. 1.  name(s) of author(s)

  2. 2.  affiliation(s), addresses, fax and e-mail

  3. 3.  title of the paper

  4. 4.  5 to 10 key words in English or in French (in both languages if possible)

  5. 5.  abstract in English or in French (in both languages if possible) (300 words maximum for each)

As the reviewing will be blind, the paper itself must not include the authors' names and affiliations at submission time. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...".
