QG Task

INLG 2012




GenChal'08 (REG)

GenChal'07 (ASGRE)

In order to continue to provide a common forum for the expanding range of shared-task activities involving language generation, we are organising Generation Challenges 2012 (GenChal'12).

Shared Tasks

The following shared tasks are currently active:

  1. Surface Realisation (Belz, Bohnet, Wanner, White, Hogan, Stent): Generation of sentences from syntactic and semantic input representations.
  2. Helping Our Own (Dale and Kilgariff): Text correction, in particular of academic articles written by non-native speakers. See HOO website for Call for Participation and further details.
  3. Question Generation (Rus, Graesser, Piwek, Stoyanchev et al.): QG website.

In addition, we will post a call for task proposals which will be presented for discussion at the GenChal'12 session at INLG'12 (with a view to running them as tasks in 2013).
