MyNLG: 1st Workshop on Style, Affect and Character

Webpage: https://acguc.000webhostapp.com/ <https://acguc.000webhostapp.com/>

*******************************************************************************************************

The "MyNLG: Style, Affect and Character Adaptive Natural Language Generation" international workshop will be held during the 11th International Conference on Natural Language Generation (INLG 2018) at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, on November 5th 2018.

NLG is now a cornerstone for applications ranging from chatbots and artificial assistants to automatic scientific paper and book generation. Especially relevant but challenging is to make NLG adaptive towards characteristics of the user and to incorporate emotions, affect, feedback and other reactions in interactive settings. Since these challenges might not be met by engineering solutions alone, we especially welcome research from a psycholinguistics and cognitive science perspective as well as user studies to shed more light on important factors and guiding principles of adaptive NLG. The MyNLG workshop invites researchers and industry practitioners interested in both computational and cognitive communities to share knowledge and resources, discuss new ideas and build foundations of possible future collaborations. The workshop welcomes interested participants working in related fields, including: Natural Language Generation, Character Computing, Computational Linguistics, Human Computer Interaction, Psycholinguistics and Cognitive Psychology. The aim of this workshop is to present research on making Natural Language Generation (NLG) systems more adaptive in all possible aspects, including affect, style, character, context, formality and complexity.

Relevant Topics and Audience

*******************************************************************************************************

Participants with expertise and interest in any of the following fields are welcome to contribute. The presented papers should discuss work in progress, theories, architectures as well as applications that are based upon adaptive aspects of computing and NLG.

MyNLG invites submissions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

• Responsible Artificial Intelligence • Generating Code-Switched Text

• Artificial Intelligence for Social Good • User Modelling and Personalization

• Multi-Agent System Technology • Applications using Models of Emotion

• Multilingual Language Modeling • Persuasive Computing/Technologies

• Dialogue Systems and Communication • End-to-end Speech Synthesis

• Logic Programming for NLG • Speech Emotion Synthesis and Recognition

• Rule-based Grammars • Cognitive Science and Cognitive Robotics

• Affective Computing • Adaptive and Interactive Systems

• Character and Personality Computing

*******************************************************************************************************

Paper submission

*******************************************************************************************************

The submissions should follow the INLG submission format and length limits. We accept both long papers (8+2 pages), and short papers (4+1 pages). Check the instructions at: https://inlg2018.uvt.nl/call-for-papers/ <https://inlg2018.uvt.nl/call-for-papers/>

We will apply to have the accepted papers included as INLG Workshop Proceedings on the ACL Anthology.
