Our research ranges from studying the theory and methodology of NLG to developing practical NLG software for real applications in the outside world.
The work takes place in a variety of forms. Most of the research is in form of large projects, over a few years and employing a number of staff, funded by outside bodies. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is the main UK organisation that supports our work.
The NLG group also has several PhD research students at any time, working closely with their supervisors on all sorts of NLG topics. The link at the left of this page gives more details of how you might become a research student in the group.
Students being taught on Computing Science degrees have to carry out project work as part of their degrees, and these projects can be in the area of NLG; follow the link at the left for more information.
Some of our past research projects have been developed in collaboration with external companies, and we can also advise industrial or commercial bodies about NLG issues; see the links at the left.
