ENLG 2013 - 14th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation
An ACL 2013 Workshop
Sofia, Bulgaria
August 8-9, 2013

****DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3rd May 2013***

ENLG 2013 invites substantial, original, and unpublished submissions on all
topics related to natural language generation. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

- Affective / emotional generation
- Content and text planning
- Generation for embodied agents and robots
- Evaluation of NLG systems
- Data-to-text generation
- Lexicalisation
- Multimedia or multimodal generation
- Story-telling and narrative generation
- NLG for real-world applications
- NLG in linguistically motivated frameworks
- Personalization and personality of text
- Psycholinguistics and NLG
- Referring expression generation
- Surface realization
- Machine learning approaches to NLG tasks
- Text-to-text generation and summarisation
- NLG techniques for paraphrase generation
- NLG techniques for abstractive summarisation

This year, we also invite submissions for system demonstrations. Demo
papers should describe implemented systems, which will be presented during
demo sessions throughout the duration of the workshop.

Papers and formats
ENLG has three submission categories, long and short papers, and demo
- Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research
results and must not exceed eight (8) pages of content, with up to two
additional pages for references (these will be orally presented);
- Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research
effort and must not exceed four (4) pages, including references (these will
be presented as posters during the poster session).
- Demo papers should be no more than two pages in length, including
references, and should describe implemented systems which are of relevance
to the NLG community. Demo papers will be included in the proceedings.
Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo of their system
during ENLG 2013.

The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions
should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Use of the ACL
style files (available from http://acl2013.org/site/call.html) is strongly
recommended. Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the
authors within the paper.

Submission instructions:
Submissions should be uploaded to the START2 website for the workshop (
