The Generation Challenges are an event designed to bring together a variety of shared-task evaluation efforts that involve the generation of natural language. This year, Generation Challenges will be held during a special session at the 11th International Conference on Natural Language Generation (https://inlg2018.uvt.nl/) in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
The session will follow the format of previous years, with presentations of results of shared tasks that are currently running, as well as presentations of proposals for new shared tasks in the Task Proposals Track.
Call for Shared Task Proposals
We invite submissions of papers describing ideas for future shared tasks in the general area of language generation. Proposed tasks can be in the area of core NLG, or in other research areas in which language is generated. Examples include, but are not limited to: data-to-text or text-to-text generation; combining core NLG and MT, summarisation, dialogue modelling, etc.; generating language from heterogeneous and/or multi-modal data; etc.
Submissions should describe possible future tasks in detail, including information regarding organisers, task description, motivating theoretical interest and/or application context, size and state of completion of data to be used, schedule and evaluation plans.
Instructions for Proposal Submissions
Submissions in the Task Proposals Track should be no more than 4 (four) pages long excluding citations, and should follow the guidelines and style files indicated on the INLG 2018 submissions homepage (https://inlg2018.uvt.nl).
Papers should be submitted in PDF format by email to workshops.inlg2018 at gmail.com.
Submissions will be reviewed by a small steering committee. As reviewing will not be blind, there is no need to anonymise papers.
This is not intended to be a selective process, since the aim is to discuss new potential shared tasks with INLG delegates. However, the organisers reserve the right to reject proposals which do not fall within the scope of the GenChal initiative, or which do not follow guidelines.
Accepted submissions will be included in the INLG'18 proceedings.
