Welcome to the Proceedings of the Workshop on Intelligent Interactive Systems and Language
Generation (2IS&NLG 2018)! This workshop seeks to gather researchers and practitioners working on
language generation, human-computer interaction, conversational agents, and computational intelligence
that deal with cross-cutting issues concerning language generation and intelligent interactive systems. It
is to be held on November 5 2018 at the International Conference on Natural Language Generation
(INLG2018), which is supported by the Special Interest Group on NLG of the Association for
Computational Linguistics. We received 16 submissions (13 regular papers and 3 demos). 9 regular submissions were accepted after a double blind peer review, whereas 2 demos have been included in the program after a juried process.
In addition, 2IS&NLG 2018 included an invited talk by Sander Wubben (Tilburg University). We would like to thank to all authors for submitting their contributions to our workshop. We thank the program committee members for their work at reviewing the papers and their support during the organization.
