Call for Papers for Student Session Third International Conference on Natural Language Generation (INLG 2004) Conference venue: Careys Manor, New Forest, UK Host institution: ITRI, University of Brighton, UK The Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Generation (SIGGEN) invites the submission of papers for the Student Session at INLG 2004. Student papers are invited on the same topics as the main session, i.e. all aspects of natural language generation, including, but not limited to: · Communicative goal and message specification, content selection · Text planning, discourse models, argumentation strategies · Sentence realization, formalisms and models of grammar, sentence aggregation, lexical choice · Wide coverage generation · Knowledge acquisition and resources for generation · Style and stylistic control of generators · Architecture of generators · Multimodal and multimedia generation · Multilingual generation · Statistical approaches to generation · Psychological modelling of language production · Machine learning methods for generation · Evaluation methodologies for generation · Generation for speech synthesis · Applications of generation, including areas such as document and data summarization, knowledge management, the semantic web and mobile computing Student Session The Student Session is now an established INLG tradition. The main idea is for students to present work in progress in a constructive atmosphere and to receive helpful feedback from established researchers in their field. Proceedings Student Papers will be published in the main proceedings of INLG 2004, to be published by Springer Verlag as part of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) Series (http://www.springer.d e/comp/lncs/index.html). Requirements Papers should describe original work, either completed or in progress, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included, and directions for future research should be indicated. Papers can have more than one author, but all authors must be students. Evidence of student status may be required for accepted authors. Students may submit more than one paper, provided the set of authors is different on each paper, and provided each paper will be presented by a different student. A paper submitted to INLG 2004 cannot have previously been published, and once accepted for INLG 2004 should not be submitted to further conferences or workshops. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this. Reviewing Reviewing of papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by an international Conference Programme Committee. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Final decisions on the technical programme will be made by the Conference Programme Committee chairs. Submission information Submissions should follow the style instructions specified in the LNCS/LNAI Instructions for Authors, and should be converted to PDF format. Papers must not exceed five (5) pages, including references. Note: The LNCS/LNAI Instructions for Authors provide templates for both LaTeX and Word. However, for final submission of accepted papers, we will have a strong practical preference for LaTeX source to allow us to construct the compiled document. Authors are therefore urged to use LaTeX to create submissions from the outset wherever possible. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors’ names and affiliations. In the paper, please insert the paper registration number (see below) instead of of the authors’ names. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the authors’ identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...”, should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...”. Papers that do not conform to these requirements may be rejected without review. Submission procedure Paper submission will be a web-based two-stage process. Paper registration You must submit a notification of submission by filling out the form provided on the INLG04 submission web page. The authors should fill in the title of the paper, the authors’ names, affiliations, and email addresses, one or two general topic areas, up to 5 keywords specifying the subject area, and a short summary (up to 200 words). The authors should also specify whether the paper is under consideration for other conferences or workshops, and if so, which ones. Each submission will be assigned an identification number. Please use it on all correspondence with the programme committee. Paper submission All papers must be submitted electronically at the INLG04 submission web page. The first page of your paper must include the identification number obtained from paper registration. The paper must be submitted no later than the deadline. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed. Papers must be in PDF format.
