CALL FOR PAPERS: IntelLanG - Intelligent Information Processing and Natural Language Generation A workshop at the 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2020) New Date: August 29, 2020 Santiago de Compostela, Spain https://intellang.github.io
The main objective of the field of Natural Language Generation (NLG) is to help in the production of systems that allow the automatic creation of high-quality text from non-linguistic information. NLG is currently one of the most relevant research areas for contemporary Artificial Intelligence.
The general problem of NLG is very challenging because the transformation of input data into the final output text involves multiple sub-tasks, such as determining the content and structure of the message or choosing the right words to express the final text. And this is done in diverse application areas where the goal of the system varies: generation of informative texts, summaries, simplified texts, persuasive texts, recommendations, narratives or conversational turns in dialogue systems...
The use of intelligent data and information processing techniques can help in many relevant aspects of the NLG problem, for example in the contribution of formalisms for uncertainty representation in language such as fuzzy sets, knowledge modeling and management, KDD, Data Mining and Machine Learning techniques and tools for the analysis of data, or in the development of models for the evaluation of the quality of the proposals, among many others. Artificial Intelligence information processing techniques can also gain a lot from their interaction with the particular area of NLG, as is the case with the burgeoning field of explainable artificial intelligence, where rendering explanations of complex AI models in natural language is a relatively under-explored area.
The objective of this workshop is to identify challenges and to evaluate current results that arise from the interaction of intelligent information processing techniques with techniques and knowledge within the field of Natural Language Generation, both at the level of models and applications.
The list of relevant topic areas are related to the use of AI techniques for:
- Knowledge representation models for NLG.
- Uncertainty management in NLG problems.
- Algorithms for data analysis in the NLG process.
- Quality models to guide the development of tools and techniques and for the evaluation of proposals.
- Computational Creativity.
- Explainable Artificial Intelligence.
- Data-to-text NLG
- Text-to-Text Generation
- Dialog systems
- Text Summarization
- Generation of text grounded in multimodal data
- Modular versus end-to-end NLG systems
The workshop is intended as a lively, open event to generate discussion. We would welcome submissions that are not only technical papers, but also position and discussion papers (highlights, as defined in the CFP of the main conference), about the intersection of NLG and Intelligent Data and Information processing. In addition, we will include an invited speaker talk and some discussion so new synergies and topics could arise.
All information related to the workshop can be found in the web: https://intellang.github.io
SUBMISSION OF CONTRIBUTIONS -------------------------------------------------
We invite paper submissions that are not only technical papers, but position and discussion papers. Papers should follow the style and guidelines of the main ECAI conference (see http://ecai2020.eu/call-for-papers/mainconference/), although workshop submissions will not be included in the conference proceedings. Submissions can fall into one of the following categories:
1) Regular papers on substantial, original and unpublished research, including technical descriptions of working systems and prototypes (up to 7 pages, not including references).
2) Position papers highlighting discussion issues, opinion pieces, etc. (up to 4 pages, not including references).
The venue of the workshop and related travel information can also be found on the main conference website.
Submission will be handled via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=intellang2020
