The 12th International Conference on Natural Language Generation (INLG 2019) will be held at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) in Tokyo, Japan, October 29 - November 1, 2019. The conference takes place immediately prior to EMNLP-IJNLP
2019(https://www.emnlp-ijcnlp2019.org/), which will be held in Hong Kong starting November 3.
We invite the submission of long and short papers, as well as system demonstrations, related to all aspects of Natural Language Generation (NLG), including data-to-text, concept-to-text, text-to-text and vision-to-text approaches. Accepted papers will be presented
as oral talks or posters.
The event is organised under the auspices of the Special Interest Group on Natural Language Generation (SIGGEN)(https://aclweb.org/aclwiki/SIGGEN) of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)(https://aclweb.org/aclwiki/Main_Page).

Submissions & Format
Submissions should follow the new ACL Author Guidelines(https://www.aclweb.org/adminwiki/index.php?title=ACL_Author_Guidelines) and policies for submission, review and citation, and be anonymised for double blind reviewing. ACL 2019 offers both LaTeX style
files(http://www.acl2019.org/medias/340-acl2019-latex.zip) and Microsoft Word templates(http://www.acl2019.org/medias/341-acl2019-word.zip). Papers should be submitted electronically through the START conference management system (to be opened in due course).
Three kinds of papers can be submitted:
- 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.
- Short papers are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing research effort and must not exceed four (4) pages, with up to one extra page for references.
- 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. Authors of demo papers should be willing to present a demo of their system during INLG 2019.
All accepted papers will be published in the INLG 2019 proceedings and included in the ACL anthology. A paper accepted for presentation at INLG 2019 must not have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Dual submission to other
conferences is permitted, provided that authors clearly indicate this in the "Acknowledgements" section of the paper when submitted. If the paper is accepted at both venues, the authors will need to choose which venue to present at, since they can not present
the same paper twice.
