EMNLP'11 Workshop on Language Generation and Evaluation

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 Session of presentations and discussion, and host an invited talk on evaluation in NLG.

Invited talk:
Task-based Extrinsic Evaluation of NLG Systems
