The 29th Meeting of Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands (CLIN 29) took place in Groningen, The Netherlands on January 31, 2019.
CLIN 29 is organised by the Centre for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG) at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG).
Members of the POSTHCARD project team were present at CLIN 29 with a POSTER about the Dutch language generation component that is used in the POSTHCARD narrative engine.

Mariët Theune is an Assistant Professor in the Human-Media Interaction group at the University of Twente. Her research interests lie in the areas of natural language processing and generation, with applications in the communication between people and virtual humans or robots, digital humanities, interactive storytelling and serious games. The main aim of her research is to develop technology that can interact with people using human language as well as appropriate nonverbal behaviour. Her current projects focus on the question how we can automatically generate language (either text or dialogue) in different styles and in an adaptive fashion.
Ruud de Jong is a junior Researcher (NLG) @ Twente University and holds a Master of Science (MSc), Human Media Interaction. Thesis: “SimpleNLG-NL: Natural Language Generation for Dutch”
