[apologies for cross-posting]

We have decided to **extend** the deadline for submissions for the MyNLG workshop at INLG 2018. The new deadline is September 21, 2018.

                          WORKSHOP: Second Call for papers & participation with deadline extension

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

                        MyNLG: 1st Workshop on Style, Affect and Character

                           Webpage: 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 • Artificial Intelligence for Social Good • Generating Code-Switched Text • Multilingual Language Modeling • Logic Programming for NLG • Rule-based Grammars • Cognitive Science and Cognitive Robotics • User Modelling and Personalization • Applications using Models of Emotion • Affective Computing • Persuasive Computing/Technologies • Dialogue Systems and Communication • Adaptive and Interactive Systems • Multi-Agent System Technology • End-to-end Speech Synthesis

 • Speech Emotion Synthesis and Recognition • 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/

Please submit your paper via email to mynlgworkshop at gmail.com.

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