Meeting Description:

ENLG 2011 will take place in Nancy, France, Sep. 28-30, 2011.

The ENLG 2011 workshop 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. ENLG 2011 invites substantial, original, and unpublished submissions on all topics related to natural language generation. This includes research on core NLG issues as well as research in any area of NLP that produces language output, such as dialog systems, summarization, MT, etc.

ENLG 2011 will also include a special session on the Generation Challenges 2011. Generation Challenges is an umbrella event designed to bring together different shared-task evaluation efforts that involve the generation of natural language. In 2011 four shared-tasks on surface realization, generating instructions in virtual environments, question generation, and the improvement of academic papers are being organized. Some of them will be presented at ENLG 2011. See the Generation Challenges website at http://www.nltg.brighton.ac.uk/research/genchal11 for more information on how to participate in a shared task or propose a new shared task.

Call for Papers:

Submission deadline: June 1, 2011

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Generation of affect and emotion
- Personalization and personality of text
- Content and text planning
- Lexicalisation
- Referring expression generation
- Surface realization
- Generation for dialog systems
- Generation for embodied agents and robots
- Evaluation of NLG systems
- Text-to-text generation
- Generation for summarization
- Multimedia or multimodal generation
- Story-telling and narrative generation
- NLG for real-world applications e.g., Computer Assisted Language Learning, Authoring tools
- Psycholinguistics and NLG
- NLG in linguistically motivated frameworks
- Statistical processing for NLG
- Use of ontologies in NLG
- Generating controlled languages


Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information at submission time. If ENLG 2011 accepts a paper, authors must notify the program chairs, indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. ENLG 2011 cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Submission Categories:

ENLG invites the submission of long and short papers:

- Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research results and must not exceed eight (8) pages, excluding references (accepted long papers will be presented orally);

- Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research effort, a demo or a system and must not exceed four (4) pages, excluding references (these will be presented as posters and/or demos during the poster session).

Paper Submission:

Submissions should be uploaded to the ENLG 2011 submission site, which will be made available. Submissions must conform to the official ACL-HLT 2011 style guidelines (see http://www.acl2011.org/call.shtml#submission), which are contained in the style files, and they must be electronic in PDF. Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors within the paper. Please note that different guidelines and procedures apply to papers for the shared tasks. Please refer to the organizers of the different challenges.
