Call for Task Proposals

GENERATION CHALLENGES 2013
--------------------------

To be held in conjunction with ENLG 2013, August 8-9, Sofia, Bulgaria

Over the past six years, there has been a lot of activity in
connection with shared tasks in Natural Language Generation (NLG). This
is reflected in the level of participation and interest in the Generation
Challenges,
an umbrella event designed to bring together a variety of shared-task
evaluation
efforts that involve the generation of natural language.  For some of the
tasks, evaluation results and participating systems will be presented at
the Generation Challenges 2013 Special Session at the 14th European
Workshop
on Natural Language Generation (ENLG'13).  The session will follow the
format of previous GenChal results sessions, with presentations of
results by the organisers of the different shared tasks, as well as
presentations of proposals for new shared tasks in the Task Proposals
Track.

Track on Proposals for Future Tasks:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
We invite submissions of papers describing ideas for future shared
tasks in the general area of language generation.  Proposed tasks can
be in the area of core NLG, or in other research areas in which
language is generated. Examples include text-to-text generation (including
MT and
summarisation), combining core NLG and MT, combining core NLG and
text summarisation, and/or generating language from heterogeneous data.
Submissions should describe possible future tasks
in detail, including information regarding organisers, task
description, motivating theoretical interest and/or application
context, size and state of completion of data to be used, and
evaluation plans.


Instructions for Paper Submissions:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - -
Submissions in the Task Proposals Track should be no more than 4 (four)
pages long excluding citations, and should
follow the ACL'13 guidelines using the style files provided via the
ACL 2013 homepage.  Papers should be sent in PDF format by email to
enlg2013 at um.edu.mt.
Task Proposal papers should be submitted no later than 16 June 2013.

Submissions will be reviewed by members of the Generation Challenges
Steering
Committee.  As reviewing will not be blind, there is no need to anonymise
papers.
This is not intended to be a selective process, but the organisers reserve
the right to reject papers which do not fall within the scope of the
GenChal initiative,
or which do not follow guidelines.

Accepted submissions will be included in the ENLG'13 proceedings.
