1. ENLG 2015
The ENLG 2015 workshop is the latest in a biennial series of workshops
on Natural Language Generation (NLG) started in 1987, providing a
regular forum for presentation of research in this area, both for NLG
specialists and for researchers from related areas. ENLG is endorsed by
the ACL Special Interest Group on Generation (SIGGEN). The 2015 edition
will be held at the University of Brighton, UK, and will be co-organised
by COST Action IC1307: The European Network on Vision and Language (iV&L

As always, ENLG welcomes submissions in all areas of, and approaches to,
NLG: from specific tasks to complete solutions, and from rule-based to
statistical and machine learning methods. For this edition, the special
theme will be Image and Video Description; as well as the usual ENLG
topics we therefore especially invite submissions in this and related areas.

2. Call for papers and demos
ENLG 2015 invites substantial, original, and unpublished submissions on
all topics related to natural language generation. Given the special
theme of ENGL'15, we particularly encourage submissions, in any of the
three categories (long, short and demo papers), on the automatic
generation of image and video descriptions. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

- Content and text planning
- Generation for affect and emotion
- Generation for embodied agents and robots
- Evaluation of NLG systems
- Data-to-text generation
- Lexicalisation
- Multimedia or multimodal generation
- Story-telling and narrative generation
- NLG for real-world applications
- NLG in linguistically motivated frameworks
- Personalization and personality of text
- Psycholinguistics and NLG
- Referring expression generation
- Surface realization
- Machine learning approaches to NLG tasks
- Text-to-text generation and summarisation
- NLG techniques for paraphrase generation
- NLG techniques for abstractive summarisation
- Generation of image and video descriptions

We also invite submissions for system demonstrations. Demo papers should
describe implemented systems, which will be presented during demo
sessions throughout the duration of the workshop.

3. Submission and format
ENLG has three submission categories, long and short papers, and demo
- Long papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research
results and must not exceed eight (8) pages of content, with up to two
additional pages for references (these will be orally presented);
- Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research
effort and must not exceed four (4) pages, including references (these
will be presented as posters during the poster session).
- Demo papers should be no more than two pages in length, including
references, and should describe implemented systems which are of
relevance to the NLG community. Demo papers will be included in the
proceedings. Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo
of their system during ENLG 2015.

The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions
should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Use of the ACL
style files (available from is
strongly recommended, and will be required for camera-ready versions.
Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors
within the paper.

Submissions should be uploaded to the Easychair website for the workshop
