This volume presents the proceedings of the SixthInternational Workshop on Automated Natural LanguageGeneration held in Castel Ivano, Trento, Italy, April 5-7,1992. Besides an invited lecture by Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann,a well-known researcher in computer animation, on creatingand visualizing speech and emotion, the volume includes the17 thouroughly reviewed papers accepted for presentation,selected out of the submissions to the Workshop, as well as11 statements contributed to panels on multilinguality andgeneration or extending language generation to multiplemedia. The accepted papers by leading researchers fromJapan, North America and Europe fall in sections ongenerator system architecture, issues in realisation,issues in discourse structure, and beyond traditionalgeneration.
