Meeting Description:

A controlled natural language (CNL) is based on natural language but comes with restrictions on vocabulary, grammar, and/or semantics. The general goal is to reduce or eliminate ambiguity and complexity.

Some of these languages are designed to improve communication among humans, especially for non-native speakers of the respective natural language. In other cases, the restrictions on the language are supposed to make it easier for computers to analyze such texts in order to improve computer-aided, semi-automatic, or automatic translations into other languages. A third group of CNL has the goal to enable reliable automated reasoning on seemingly natural texts. Such languages have a direct mapping to some sort of formal logic and should improve the accessiblity of formal knowledge representations or specifications for people unfamiliar with formal notations.

All these types of CNL are covered by this workshop. 

Call for Papers:

We invite researchers to submit papers with novel contributions in the area of CNL. These research papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format and should not exceed 15 pages. Papers should be submitted in PDF format via the EasyChair conference system:


Accepted papers will be published in the printed workshop proceedings (probably by Springer). Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their research at the workshop. Unlike the previous CNL workshops, the final papers will be reviewed and published before the workshop (there are no extended abstracts anymore).
