Welcome to the home page of the Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Natural Language Generation. SIGGEN [ˈsɪɡ.ʤɛn] is a special interest group of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). It provides a forum for the discussion, dissemination and archiving of research topics and results in the field of text generation.

Active topics of interest include:

  • Discourse models, content planning.
  • Syntactic realization: formalisms and models of grammars for sentence production.
  • Architecture of generators.
  • Lexical choice.
  • Psychological modelling of discourse production.
  • Pragmatic influences on lexical choice, syntax and content selection.
  • Multilingual or multi-modal generation.
  • Applications of generation technology (report generation, explanation for knowledge-based systems, automatic translation...).
  • Learning methods.
  • Evaluation of generation results.

Relevant aspects of the following areas relate to problems of natural language generation:

  • Grammar theory
  • Statistical methods
  • Speech synthesis
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Neuroscience
  • Philosophy
