1st Workshop on Games and NLP (GAMNLP-12)
23 October 2012, Kanazawa, Japan

This workshop aims at promoting and exploring the possibilities for research and practical applications involving Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Games. The main objective is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and share ideas regarding how the NLP research community can contribute to games research and vice versa. For example, the use of NLP techniques can help the formal study and understanding of games as well as the design and development of novel and engaging game experiences. On the other hand, games provide interesting challenges to NLP in the linguistic characteristics of the domain and its user culture in addition to being a medium which facilitates interactive dialogues. The workshop welcomes the participation of both academics and industry practitioners interested in the use of NLP in games or vice versa.
