Meeting Description:

12th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation (ENLG 2009)

ENLG 2009 is organized as an EACL workshop, and will take place on 30 and
31 March 2009 in Athens, Greece. It continues a biennial series of
workshops on natural language generation that has been running since 1987,
providing a regular forum for presentation of research in this area, both
for NLG specialists and for researchers from other areas. ENLG 2009
includes two special events. To begin, the Generation Challenges 2009 will
be held in conjunction with ENLG 2009, as an umbrella event designed to
bring together three different shared-task evaluation efforts that involve
the generation of natural language. In addition, ENLG 2009 will have a
special track devoted to the generation of vague language based on exact
input data.

Topics that will be addressed at ENLG include the generation of referring
expressions, text-to-text generation, NLG applications, the use of game theory
for NLG, machine learning approaches to generation, affective NLG, and NLG in
interactive settings.

The results of two shared-task evaluation efforts will be presented at ENLG
2009: the GIVE Challenge on Generating Instructions in a Virtual Environment and
the TUNA Progress Test on the generation of distinguishing descriptions. These
tasks are part of the Generation Challenges 2009, organized by Anja Belz,
Albert Gatt and Eric Kow; see http://www.nltg.brighton.ac.uk/research/genchal09.
