Generation Challenges 2009 is an initiative that aims to provide a common forum for a number of different NLG Shared Tasks.
As part of Generation Challenges 2009, we are organising two GREC Shared Task Competitions. The first is the GREC-MSR (Main Subject References) Task which uses the GREC-2.0 Corpus of 2,000 Wikipedia introduction sections where references to the main subject of the Wikipedia article have been annotated, and the task is to develop a system that can select (from a given list) an MSR that is appropriate in the context. The second is the GREC-NEG (Named Entity Generation) Task which uses the new GREC-People Corpus of 1,000 Wikipedia introduction sections about people in which single and plural references to all people mentioned in the text have been annotated. The task in GREC-NEG is to select appropriate referential expressions for all mentions (singular and plural) of people.
Submitted systems and evaluation results will be presented in a special session at the ACL-IJCNLP'09 Workshop on Language Generation and Summarisation on 6 August 2009 in Singapore, and accompanying reports will be published in the workshop proceedings.
For details please refer to the Call for Participation.
