Meeting Description: This workshop intends to bring together scientists working in a variety of fields in which text simplification can be applied, computational linguists interested in the research problems of text simplification and of course users who can benefit from the simplified texts.

The innovative aspect of this workshop will be the discussion on text simplification from two perspectives: On the one hand, how computational linguistics applications which simplify texts can be used by people in real world situation, and on the other hand, how to simplify the input for other NLP-based applications in order to improve their accuracy. We also intend to develop a roadmap of activities, tools and resources on text simplification from a multilingual perspective. A special attention will be paid to contributions describing automatic text simplification for less-resourced languages.

The workshop will be organised in conjunction with COLING 2014 on 23 or 24 August in Dublin, Ireland.
