  • Text-to-text generation and summarisation
  • NLG techniques for paraphrase generation

A paper accepted for presentation at ENLG 2013 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Submission to other conferences should be clearly indicated on the paper.

Category of papers

ENLG has three submission categories, long and short papers, and demos:

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 (2) 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 2013.


Note change of submission system. We are now using START2, not Easychair.

Submissions should be uploaded to the ENLG2013 start website for the workshop. 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 is strongly recommended. Reviewing will be blind, so you should avoid identifying the authors within the paper.

If authors have any questions, they should contact the workshop organizers.
