Abstract

We propose a shared task on multilingual SurfaceRealization, i.e., on mapping unorderedand uninflected universal dependency trees tocorrectly ordered and inflected sentences in anumber of languages. A second deeper inputwill be available in which, in addition,functional words, fine-grained PoS and morphologicalinformation will be removed fromthe input trees. The first shared task on SurfaceRealization was carried out in 2011 witha similar setup, with a focus on English. Wethink that it is time for relaunching such ashared task effort in view of the arrival of UniversalDependencies annotated treebanks fora large number of languages on the one hand,and the increasing dominance of Deep Learning,which proved to be a game changer forNLP, on the other hand.
