This paper deals with an application of au- tomatic titling. The aim of such application is to attribute a title for a given text. So, our application relies on three very differ- ent automatic titling methods. The first one extracts relevant noun phrases for their use as a heading, the second one automatically constructs headings by selecting words ap- pearing in the text, and, finally, the third one uses nominalization in order to propose informative and catchy titles. Experiments based on 1048 titles have shown that our methods provide relevant titles.
