9 - 10 September 2021, Seventh International Workshop on Controlled Natural Language (CNL 2020)

Date: 9 - 10 September 2021
Location: Amsterdam
Target audience: researchers and practitioners
Costs: €200 (small changes are possible)
Deadline: Saturday 2 May 2020

This workshop on Controlled Natural Language (CNL) has a broad scope and embraces all approaches that are based on natural language and apply restrictions on vocabulary, grammar, and/or semantics. This includes (but is certainly not limited to) approaches that have been called simplified language, plain language, formalized language, processable language, fragments of language, phraseologies, conceptual authoring, language generation, and guided natural language interfaces.

Some CNLs are designed to improve communication among humans, especially for non-native speakers of the respective natural language. In other cases, the restrictions on the language are supposed to make it easier for computers to analyze such texts in order to improve computer-aided, semi-automatic, or automatic translations into other languages. A third group of CNL has the goal to enable reliable automated reasoning and formal knowledge representation from seemingly natural texts. All these types of CNL are covered by this workshop.

Due to Covid-19, the workshop is postponed to 2021!

We invite researchers to submit papers with novel contributions in the area of CNL. Papers should be formatted in two-column ACL style and should not exceed 8 pages. Submission should be done via EasyChair here: Accepted papers will be published in the ACL Anthology.
