CNL 2018 is the sixth in the series of workshops on Controlled Natural Language (CNL), which was first organised in 2009. The 2018 edition was organised in Co. Kildare, Ireland, on 27 and 28 August.
As with previous editions of the workshop, this year's papers cover the wide spectrum of the area of Controlled Natural Languages, ranging from human oriented to machine processable controlled languages, and from more theoretical results to interfaces, reasoning engines, and real-life applications of CNLs.
This year we invited both long and short papers to be submitted to the workshop, and we received a total of 14 submissions. All papers were peer-reviewed by at least three, and in most cases four, members of the workshop's Program Committee. Based on the reviews, 11 papers were accepted, out of the 14. As per usual the outcomes remain truly international, where PC members represented organisations from 13 countries and authors' affiliations of accepted papers came from 10 countries on 3 continents.
In addition to the presentation of the accepted papers, the programme includes 3 invited speakers: Claire Gardent (Loria, France), Albert Gatt (University of Malta, Malta) and Teresa Lynn (Dublin City University, Ireland) and a late-breaking results posters & demos session. We would like to thank the Programme Committee for their reviews and feedback, the authors for their contributions and the invited speakers for accepting our invitation to present their work in the workshop. Furthermore, we would also like to thank Maynooth University for hosting the workshop and the workshop sponsors Science Foundation Ireland, Maynooth University and Digital Grammars Gothenburg AB.
