The Foundations of Situated and Multimodal Communication ========================================================= Final Call for Papers

Workshop at the International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS) September 19, 2017 Montpellier, France

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION AND TOPICS ===============================

We invite submissions on foundational, conceptual, and practical issues involving situated and multimodal communication. Relevant questions include but are not limited to:

-What is the nature of the non-linguistic context? -What is the range of ways that gesture and speech exploit the non-linguistic context and how do they exploit it differently? -What are the practical and/or computational advantages in using non-linguistic context to convey meaning? -How can we measure the effects of non-linguistic context on meaning? -How do we exploit corpora to address the task of analysing multimodal communication? -How should we model agents for human-robot interactions? -Should we ensure that interlocutors' vision of the external world is coherent? If so, how do we do this? -How do we model cases in which different interlocutors adopt different perspectives on the same non-linguistic context? -How do we handle the need to disambiguate a message?
