Call For Papers

This workshop aims at exploring the overlap between NLP and games, and providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and share ideas regarding how the NLP research community can contribute to games research and vice versa.

With the advances in videogames in recent years, areas in which games and NLP can help each other have greatly expanded. For example, games could benefit from NLP's sophisticated human language technologies in designing natural and engaging dialogues to bring novel game experiences, or in processing texts to conduct formal game studies. Conversely, NLP could benefit from games in obtaining language resources (e.g., construction of a thesaurus through a crowdsourcing game), or in learning the linguistic characteristics of game users as compared to those of other domains. However, these two fields have been regarded as distant, and there is little collaborative work that has exploited the use of one in the other field.

The workshop aims at exploring the overlap between the two fields and promoting interaction and collaboration among researchers and practitioners of the fields for mutual benefit.
