2IS&NLG2018 - Workshop on Intelligent Interactive Systems and Language Generation

(https://sites.google.com/view/2is-nlg2018)

** Paper deadline: EXTENDED September 10th, 2018 **

This workshop will be held as part of the 11th International Conference on Natural Language Generation (INLG2018), November 5-8, Tilburg, The Netherlands

CALL FOR PAPERS

Language generation appears to be promising and to have a central role in a variety of intelligent interactive systems, as current research trends in conversational interaction and interfaces are demonstrating. In order to raise constructive discussion from an interdisciplinary perspective and define the research challenges to be addressed, the workshop 2IS&NLG seeks to gather researchers and practitioners working on language generation, human-computer interaction, conversational agents, and computational intelligence that deal with cross-cutting issues concerning language generation (NLG) and intelligent interactive systems (2IS).

We solicit contributions in the form of regular papers (up to 4 pages + 1 references in the ACL paper format) or demo papers (up to 2 pages) dealing with research topics in which either interaction or artificial intelligence is addressed jointly with language generation.

Submissions must be made through https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=2isnlg2018

TOPICS (include, but are not limited to)

Conversational Agents and interfaces: chatbots, virtual humans,. . .

Theory and research methods for user evaluation in NLG contexts

Measuring the effect of NLG in Intelligent Interactive Systems

Usability of eXplainable AI/interfaces

Multimodal interfaces in/for NLG systems

NLG for Games (e.g. generation of textual game assets, character dialogue, scenario generation)

User modeling, user context, personalization, and adaptive language generation

Argument mining, visualization and generation

Other novel interactive applications of automatic language generation: creativity, persuasion, e-learning, . . . .

INVITED TALK

We are honoured to host an invited talk by Sander Wubben, assistant professor at Tilburg University and co-founder of flow.ai, who is committed to bring smarter interactive chatbots as a form of conversational AI. His talk will focus on “Applications of NLG in practical conversational AI settings”, discussing the latest advances and current limitations of chatbots and voice apps.
