The Surface Realisation Shared Task was first run in 2011. Two common-ground input rep- resentations were developed and for the first time several independently developed surface realisers produced realisations from the same shared inputs. However, the input representa- tions had several shortcomings which we have been aiming to address in the time since. This paper reports on our work to date on improv- ing the input representations and on our plans for the next edition of the SR Task. We also briefly summarise other related developments in NLG shared tasks and outline how the dif- ferent ideas may be usefully brought together in the future.
