CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Language Generation and Evaluation (UCNLG+Eval) is a post-conference
workshop at EMNLP'11, Edinburgh, on 31 July 2011.


Workshop aims
--------------------

UCNLG+Eval is the fourth workshop in an occasional series aiming to
provide a forum for discussing NLG and its links with closely related
fields from a corpus-oriented perspective.  As in previous editions, this
year's workshop focuses on a special theme: Language Generation and
Evaluation.
The event will showcase recent developments in methods for evaluating
computationally generated language across NLP and continue the discussion of

future directions for NLG evaluation.  UCNLG+Eva will include a Shared Tasks
