A list of publications.
I am/was involved in three other recent projects at DFKI:
In the SmartKom project, I was responsible for Natural Language Generation (NLG) in a Concept-to-Speech approach.
In the Comic project, I was the scientific module coordinator, workpackage manager for language analysis and modality fusion and I am also working on modality fission and German language generation.
Also in the VirtualHuman and Smartweb projects, we will employ our Core Dialog Engine, including the Natural Language Generation component.
On the basis of the work on SmartKom, I designed a project on natural language access to the ARIS toolset of IDS Scheer AG (article in German).
I was responsible for DFKI's part of the UNL project (see also this link to IAI).
Previously, I worked in the Generation group of the Verbmobil project.
While a postdoctoral fellow at IRCS, the Institute for Research in Cognitive Science, I was a member of the XTAG group.
In 2003, I was a co-organizer of the IJCAI-2003 workshop on Knowledge and Reasoning in Practical Dialogue Systems
In 2003, I was elected as a board member of SIGGEN, the Special Interest Group in Natural Language Genereration.
In 2002, I co-organized a workshop on Scalable Natural Language Understanding (ScaNaLU 2002)
In 2000, immediately prior to COLING-2000, I co-organized a Workshop on Natural Language Generation at Schloß Dagstuhl with Stephan Busemann.
I was a member of the program committee of TAG+ 5, which took place in Paris, France, May 25-27, 2000.
This September, I co-organized a Workshop on Natural Language Generation at KI'99 in Bonn together with Stephan Busemann.
I was a member of the program committee of MOL 6, which took place in Orlando, Fl., July 23-25, 1999.
In August 1998, I was a co-organizer of the Fourth TAG+ Workshop at the Institute for Research in Cognitive Science at the University of Pennsylvania.
In August 1997, I shared the local organization of MOL5 the fifth Meeting on Mathematics of Language at Schloß Dagstuhl with Hans-Ulrich Krieger.
In April 1997, I co-organized a local DFKI Workshop on Natural Language Generation.
In this semester (Winter 04/05), I'm again co-teaching a 'software project' on VoiceXML. Two previous courses took place last year and in the summer term 02, where I've organized the original software project on VoiceXML with Jan Alexandersson.
In the winter term 00/01, I stepped in for Markus Löckelt and gave part of his course on LISP programming.
In the summer term 00, I've continued with part two of the course on LISP programming with Markus Becker.
In the winter term 99/00, I taught the course on LISP programming together with Jan Alexandersson.
In the summer term 99, I taught part two of the
course on LISP programming with Bernd Kiefer and Stephan Oepen.
Also in the summer term 99, I taught a course on Natural Language Generation with Stephan Busemann.
In winter 98/99, I taught a course on LISP programming with Jan Alexandersson and Bernd Kiefer.
In summer 98, I taught a course on ``Natural Language Processing with Mildly Context-Sensitive Formalisms.''
In winter 97/98, I taught a proseminar on Tree Adjoining Grammars (TAG).
I taught a similar course in the winter term 96/97.
