- The deadline for registration to the task has been extended to October 1!

Overview
----------------------
The Multilingual Surface Realisation workshop series aims to bring together researchers interested in surface-oriented Natural Language Generation problems such as word order determination, inflection, functional word determination, paraphrasing, etc., especially in a multilingual context. The 2020 edition of the workshop, MSR’20, will incorporate presentation of the results of the Surface Realisation Shared Task 2020 and of a number of technical papers on (M)SR topics. The workshop will be held at COLING’20 in Barcelona, on December 12, 2020.

MSR’20 invites contributions on all topics that are related to multilingual and monolingual surface realisation in NLG, specifically including and encouraging reversible methods. We welcome all submissions that address problems of surface-oriented generation such as grammatical and/or information structure-driven word order determination, inflection, functional word determination, paraphrasing, etc. We particularly encourage the submission of papers that make a clear contribution to the progress in robust multilingual surface generation, i.e. present methods easily portable from one language to another and clearly scalable. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Linearisation in NLG
- Multilingual approaches to surface realisation
- Function word generation
- Inflection in NLG
- Joint generation from abstract representations
- Surface-oriented text simplification
- Surface-oriented spoken language generation
- Application of surface realisation for grammatical error correction
- NLG in surface-oriented paraphrasing
- Deep learning approaches to (M)SR

Shared Tasks
----------------------
This year's shared task event uses the same training, validation and in-domain test sets as the SR’19 Shared Task, with the same data and resource restrictions (see the SR’20 webpage for details). However, this year’s shared task differs in two respects: (i) the addition of an "open" mode in each track, where there are no restrictions on the resources that can be used, and (ii) the introduction of new evaluation datasets. Full details of both tasks can be found on the SR'20 website: http://taln.upf.edu/pages/msr2020-ws/SRST.html.

Important Dates
----------------------
12 July 2020: Shared Task starts
1 Oct 2020: Shared task submissions due
8 Oct 2020: Workshop papers due
8 Oct 2020: Shared Task system descriptions due
20 Oct 2020: Notification of acceptance
31 Oct 2020: Camera-ready papers due
12 Dec 2020: Workshop date

Submissions
----------------------
We invite long papers (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages). Both long and short papers have unlimited references, and their final versions will be given one additional page (up to 9 and 5 pages, respectively, in the proceedings and unlimited pages for references).

MSR 2020 uses a double-blind reviewing process. Papers must conform to the official COLING’20 style guidelines, be in PDF format, and be submitted via the Softconf START conference management system.

To encourage inclusiveness and the presentation of speculative and recent work, inclusion in the conference proceedings will be made optional. The author’s preference should be indicated with the final submission.

Multiple submission policy: Multiple submissions are allowed, but the authors should indicate clearly whether they have submitted or plan to submit a paper with the same content to another venue.
