ENLG 2011 will take place in Nancy, France, Sep. 28-30, 2011.
Submission deadline: June 1, 2011

Invited Speakers

- Jeff Orkin, MIT Labs, USA

The ENLG 2011 workshop continues a biennial series of workshops on
natural language generation that has been running since 1987,
providing a regular forum for presentation of research in this
area. ENLG 2011 invites substantial, original, and unpublished
submissions on all topics related to natural language generation. This
includes research on core NLG issues as well as research in any area
of NLP that produces language output, such as dialog systems,
summarization, MT, etc. Topics of interest include but are not limited
- Generation of affect and emotion
- Personalization and personality of text
- Content and text planning
- Lexicalisation
- Referring expression generation
- Surface realization
- Generation for dialog systems
- Generation for embodied agents and robots
- Evaluation of NLG systems
- Text-to-text generation
- Generation for summarization
- Multimedia or multimodal generation
- Story-telling and narrative generation
- NLG for real-world applications e.g., Computer Assisted Language
  Learning, Authoring tools
- Psycholinguistics and NLG
- NLG in linguistically motivated frameworks
- Statistical processing for NLG
- Use of ontologies in NLG
- Generating controlled languages
ENLG 2011 will also include a special session on the Generation
Challenges 2011. Generation Challenges is an umbrella event designed
to bring together different shared-task evaluation efforts that
involve the generation of natural language. In 2011 four shared-tasks
on surface realisation, generating instructions in virtual
environments, question generation, and the improvement of academic
papers are being organized. Some of them will be presented at ENLG
2011. See the Generation Challenges website at for more information
on how to participate in a shared task or propose a new shared task.
Requirements: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other
meetings or publications must provide this information at submission
time. If ENLG 2011 accepts a paper, authors must notify the program
chairs, indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their
work. ENLG 2011 cannot accept for publication or presentation work
that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.
Submission categories: ENLG invites the submission of long and short
- Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research
  results and must not exceed eight (8) pages, excluding references
  (accepted long papers will be presented orally);
- Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research
  effort, a demo or a system and must not exceed four (4) pages,
  excluding references (these will be presented as posters and/or
  demos during the poster session).
Paper Submission: Submissions should be uploaded to the ENLG 2011
submission site, which will be made available. Submissions must
conform to the official ACL-HLT 2011 style guidelines (see, which are contained in
the style files, and they must be electronic in PDF. Reviewing will be
blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors within the
paper. Please note that different guidelines and procedures apply to
papers for the shared tasks. Please refer to the organizers of the
different challenges.
