The EMPATHIC Research & Innovation project will research, innovate and validate new paradigms, laying the foundation for future generations of Personalized Virtual Coaches to help elderly people to live independently.

The wellness coaching advice will promote healthy habits and behavior, by challenging each user to transform their personal goals and needs into actions. The EMPATHIC Virtual Coach (EMPATHIC-VC) will engage the healthy-senior user and reach pre-set benefits, measured through project-defined metrics, to enhance well-being through awareness of personal physical status, by improving diet and nutritional habits, by developing more physical exercise and by social activity

> DESCRIPTION: Conversational agents are designed to
> interact with users in multiple domains on several topics using
> natural language. Many chatbots have been deployed on the Internet
> (social media, e-commerce websites, just to mention a few) for the
> purpose of seeking information, question answering, coaching tasks,
> online shopping, and so on. Usually these applications work in a
> strictly limited domain with a clear and well defined dialogue
> structure, with little adaptation capabilities to the contextual and
> social situation.
> The goal of this PhD Thesis is to overcome the shortcoming of
> traditional goal-oriented applications that require a lot of
> domain-specific handcrafting, which hinders scaling up to new domains
> and languages. To do so, end-to-end approaches,
> in which all components are trained from the dialogs themselves, can
> be used to incorporate several dialogue and domain features.
>
> CANDIDATES: We are looking for strongly motivated candidates who
> will investigate innovative research directions in dialogue modeling,
> integrating advanced machine learning technologies (e.g. end-to-end memory
> networks) and knowledge based technologies.

> *******FINAL CALL for Course and Workshop Proposals******
>
> 31st European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information ? ESSLLI 2019
> 5-16 August, 2019, Riga, Latvia
> http://esslli2019.folli.info/
>
> IMPORTANT DATES
> 15 June 2018: Proposal submission deadline
> 15 September 2018: Notification
>
> SUBMISSION PORTAL
> Please submit your proposals here:
> https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2019
>
> TOPICS AND FORMAT
> Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2019 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computing Sciences. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are particularly encouraged. Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered daily
>
> (Monday-Friday) in a single week. Proposals for two-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI program committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.
>
> All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration fees waived and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be determined and communicated with the proposal notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one course/workshop organizer, and cannot guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from outside of Europe. The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the School?s expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.
>
> The organizers want to point out the possibility of an EACSL sponsorship, mentioned at the end of this call.
>
> CATEGORIES
> Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.
>
> * FOUNDATIONAL COURSES *
> Foundational courses are designed to present the basics of a research area to people with no prior knowledge in that area. They should be pitched at an elementary level, without prerequisites related to the topic of the course, though possibly assuming a level of general scientific maturity in the relevant discipline. They should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop a level of comfort with the fundamental concepts and techniques of the course?s topic, thereby contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of our research community.
>
> * INTRODUCTORY COURSES *
> Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI?s mission. They are intended to introduce a research field to students, young researchers, and other non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its basic methods and techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop some familiarity with and competence in the topic in question. Introductory courses in a cross-disciplinary area may presuppose general knowledge of the related disciplines.
>
> * ADVANCED COURSES *
> Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to acquire a higher level of understanding in the current research on a given topic or in a given field.
>
> * WORKSHOPS *
> Workshops focus on specialized topics, usually of current interest. Workshops organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop program. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings if they decide to have proceedings.
>
> PROPOSAL GUIDELINES
> All proposals should closely follow the following guidelines to ensure full consideration.
>
> Course and workshop proposals can be submitted by no more than two lecturers/organizers and they are presented by no more than these two lecturers/organizers. All instructors and organizers must possess a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission deadline.
>
> Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course category.
>
> Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the intended level, for example as it relates to standard textbooks and monographs in the area. Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in detail.
>
> Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2019
>
> and include all of the following:
>
> a. Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact address, email, homepage (optional)
>
> b. General proposal information: Title, area (Language and Computation, Language and Logic, or Logic and Computation)
>
> c. Contents information:
> Abstract of up to 150 words
> Motivation and description (up to two pages)
> Tentative outline (or schedule, in the case of workshops)
> Expected level and prerequisites
> Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings, surveys)
>
> d. Practical information:
> Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
> Potential external funding for participants
> For workshops, potential invited speakers, if any
>
> EACSL SPONSORSHIP
> The EACSL offers to act as a sponsor for one course or workshop in the areas of Logic and Computation covered by the Computer Science Logic (CSL) conferences. This course or workshop will be designated an EACSL course/workshop. If you wish to be considered for this, please indicate so on your proposal.
