International Natural Language Generation Conference INLG'2006 Sydney, Australia 15-16 July 2006 Call for Papers The 4th International Natural Language Generation Conference (the Biennial Meeting of the Special Interest Group in Natural Language Generation - SIGGEN) will be held July 15 to 16, 2006 in Sydney, Australia. INLG is the leading international conference on research into natural language generation. It has been held at Brockenhurst (UK) in 2004, in New York (USA) in 2002, and in Mitzpe Ramon (Israel) in 2000. Before 2000, INLGs were International Workshops, running every other year since 1980. INLG provides a forum for the discussion, dissemination and archiving of research topics and results in the field of text generation. INLG invites substantial, original, and unpublished submissions on all topics related to natural language generation. Active topics of interest include: * Discourse Models, Content Planning and Lexical and Syntactic Realization; * Architecture of generators; * Psychological modelling of discourse production and pragmatic influences on generation; * Multilingual generation; * Generation and summarization; * Multimedia or Multimodal Generation; * Applications of generation technology; and, * Evaluation of generation results. INLG will be held this year as a Coling/ACL workshop to take advantage of having a large part of the Natural Language Processing community in Sydney, and attract both NLG specialists and researchers who may not think of themselves as part of the NLG community (e.g., researchers in summarisation and question/answering, or dialogue systems). Submission Information Requirements - A paper accepted for presentation at INLG'2006 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Submission to other conferences should be clearly indicated on the paper. Category of Papers - The conference will be organised as a 2 day workshop, including sessions to present long papers, short papers, a student session and a specific session on sharing data and comparative evaluation. Authors must designate one of these categories at submission time: - Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research results and must not exceed eight (8) pages, including references; - Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research effort and must not exceed three (3) pages, including references; - Papers in the student session must not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. The author MUST be a student, and, when there are multiple authors, they MUST all be students. Special Session on Sharing Data and Comparative Evaluation: A separate call for expressions of interest in the special session will be distributed soon. Important Dates Submission of papers: April 19th, 2006 Notification of acceptance or rejection: May 22nd, 2006 Submission of camera-ready copy: June 6th, 2006 Workshop date: July 15-16th, 2006 Paper Submission - Submission will be electronic and the only accepted format for submitted papers will be Adobe PDF. Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings (see the guidelines provided on the Coling/ACL 2006 conference website). Submissions should be made via the START system, in the same way as the submissions for Coling/ACL. Details will be available on the Coling/ACL web site (http://www.acl2006.org). Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors within the paper. Late submissions will not be accepted. Note that in extreme cases, an author unable to comply with the above submission procedure should contact the program chairs sufficiently before the submission deadline so alternative arrangements can be made.
