This paper reports on the results of the working group "Virtual Environments" at the Workshop on Shared Tasks and Comparative Evaluation for NLG. This working group discussed the use of virtual environments as a platform for NLG evaluation, and more specifically of the generation of instructions in virtual environments as a shared task. It is based on our recent proposal, which a variety of workshop participants expressed interest in.
