Generation Challenges: Call for proposals ================================

GenChal Special Session at INLG 2016, Edinburgh, UK 5 - 8 September, 2016

Submission email: wp.inlg2016 at gmail.com

Background ----------- Shared tasks have been organised within the Natural Language Generation community since 2007, and have typically been presented at special sessions held during one of the NLG annual events. To date, shared tasks have focussed on a variety of sub-tasks of NLG, including, among others: - Content selection - Generation from knowledge bases - Generation of instructions in virtual environments - Referring Expression Generation - Surface realisation

GenChal @ INLG 2016 ---------------------- The INLG 2016 organisers and the ACL Special Interest Group in NLG (SIGGEN), are soliciting proposals for new shared tasks. These tasks are expected to run during 2016-17, with a view to presenting results in 2017 during a specially organised GenChal session at one of the NLG annual conferences or workshops.

Accepted proposals will be presented during a special session dedicated to GenChal at INLG 2016.

Submissions ------------ Proposals are expected to describe a shared task in any area that is deemed relevant to NLG. Proposals need not be anonymous, but acceptance will be contingent on an evaluation by a small panel of reviewers.

Proposals should contain the following information:

1) The names and affiliations of the organisers; 2) A description of the task, with particular reference to its relevance for the NLG community; 3) A description of the data that will be provided for participants; 4) A description of the evaluation methods that will be used to compare peer systems.

GenChal proposals are expected to be no longer than 3 pages, excluding references, and should follow the formatting guidelines for the INLG 2016 conference (see: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/InteractionLab/INLG2016/).


Important dates ---------------- 15 July 2016: Deadline for submission of proposals 31 July 2016: Notification of acceptance 5-8 September 2016: INLG 2016 in Edinburgh, UK
