Call for Posters

The Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Generation (SIGGEN) invites the submission of extended abstracts for the Poster Session at INLG 2004. Poster abstracts are invited on the same topics as the main session, i.e. all aspects of natural language generation, including, but not limited to:

  • Communicative goal and message specification, content selection
  • Text planning, discourse models, argumentation strategies
  • Sentence realization, formalisms and models of grammar, sentence aggregation, lexical choice
  • Wide coverage generation
  • Knowledge acquisition and resources for generation
  • Style and stylistic control of generators
  • Architecture of generators
  • Multimodal and multimedia generation
  • Multilingual generation
  • Statistical approaches to generation
  • Psychological modelling of language production
  • Machine learning methods for generation
  • Evaluation methodologies for generation
  • Generation for speech synthesis
  • Applications of generation, including areas such as document and data summarization, knowledge management, the semantic web and mobile computing

Poster Session

Posters will be on continuous display at INLG 2004, and there will be a dedicated poster session on the first evening of the conference, when authors will be available for questions and discussion.


Extended abstracts for Posters will be made available electronically via the INLG 2004 website, and will be published by ITRI, University of Brighton.


Extended abstracts for Posters should describe original work, either completed or in progress, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included, and directions for future research should be indicated. Posters may be on the same topic as posters or papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops, provided this is not against the requirements of the other conferences or workshops.


Extended abstracts for Posters will be reviewed by three members of the Conference Programme Committee. Final decisions on the technical programme will be made by the Conference Programme Committee chairs.

Submission information

Extended abstracts for Posters should not exceed 500 words in length and should be submitted by E-mail to in PDF format by the submission deadline (see below). Abstracts for Posters do not have be registered before submission.

Upon receipt, each submission will be assigned an identification number. Please use it on all correspondence with the programme committee.
