The 16th WORKSHOP ON THE SEMANTICS AND PRAGMATICS OF DIALOGUE
PARIS, SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2012
**DEADLINE for Poster and Demo submissions: June 30
Invited Speakers: Eve V. Clark (Stanford University) Geert-Jan M. Kruijff (DFKI-Saarbrücken) François Recanati (Institut Jean Nicod, École Normale Supérieure)
The SEMDIAL series of workshops brings together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience (see past SemDials). In 2012 the workshop will be hosted by Université Paris-Diderot (Paris 7). The Semdial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and Paris is of course one of the greatest cities to visit, especially in September. SeineDial will be immediately preceded by a workshop on Dialogue and Contextualism (see https://sites.google.com/site/semdial2012seinedial/workshop-on-dialogue-and-contextualism
) and will feature a special session on The Acquisition of Dialogue.
We invite late-breaking system demonstrations and ongoing project descriptions, to be presented in a poster session during the workshop. Late-breaking submissions will be two pages long; they will not be refereed, but evaluated for relevance only by the area chairs. The deadline for late-breaking submissions is June 30, 2012.
Topics related to the semantics and pragmatics of dialogues, include, but not limited to:
--models of common ground/mutual belief in communication --modelling agents' information states and how they get updated --multi-agent models and turn-taking --goals, intentions and commitments in communication --semantic interpretation in dialogues --reference in dialogues --ellipsis resolution in dialogues --dialogue and discourse structure --interpretation of questions and answers --gesture in communication --intonational meaning in dialogue --humour in dialogue --natural language understanding and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems --multimodal dialogue systems --dialogue management in practical implementations --categorisation of dialogue moves or speech acts in corpora --designing and evaluating dialogue systems --contextual factors underlying child utterances in dialogue --repair in child/adult interaction
