Meeting Description: Many NLP systems generate or reformulate human languages but how readable is the output? What makes language easy, difficult, or, indeed, a pleasure to read for different types of readers? How can existing text be manipulated to improve information access? How does the style of writing, formal vs informal, informational vs. entertaining, affect readability, user comprehension, and/or appreciation of text? The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in these questions amongst computational linguists as attention turns to more sophisticated techniques for textual presentation and to address the widely differing needs of end users.

PITR is a cross-disciplinary workshop bringing together researchers in fields concerned with the readability, accessibility, and quality of text. We are keen to widen the scope to include researchers who might not normally attend a computational linguistics conference, e.g., psycholinguists, sociolinguists, assistive technology and educational researchers.
Linguistic Subfield: Applied Linguistics; Cognitive Science; Computational Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Psycholinguistics
