Call for papers
International Workshop on Spoken Dialog Systems Technology (IWSDS 2018)
Singapore, April 18-20, 2018


The INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SPOKEN DIALOGUE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY (IWSDS) 2018 invites paper submissions especially on the following topics:

- Engagement and emotion in human-robot interactions
- Digital resources for interactive applications
- Multi-modal and machine learning methods
- Companions, personal assistants and dialogue systems
- Proactive and anticipatory interactions
- Educational and healthcare robot applications
- Dialogue systems and reasoning
- Big data and large scale spoken dialogue systems
- Multi-lingual dialog systems
- Spoken dialog systems for low-resource languages
- Domain Transfer and adaptation techniques for spoken dialog systems

However, submissions are not limited to these topics, and submission of papers in all areas of spoken dialogue systems is encouraged. We particularly welcome papers that can be illustrated by a demonstration, and will organize the conference in order to best accommodate these papers, whatever their category.

As in previous years, a selection of accepted papers will be published in a book by Springer following the conference (Springer LNEE series, SCOPUS and other important indexes).

Authors are requested to submit PDF files of their manuscripts using the paper submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwsds2018)

We distinguish between the following categories of submissions:

- Long Research Papers are reserved for reports on mature research results. The expected length of a long paper should be in the range of 8-12 pages, including references.
- Short Research Papers should be in the range of 4-6 pages, including references. Authors may choose this category if they wish to report on smaller case studies or ongoing but interesting and original research efforts.
- Position Papers deal with novel research ideas or view-points which describe trends or fruitful starting points for future research and elicit discussion and are not much researched. They should be 2 pages long, excluding references.
- Demo Submissions - System Papers: Authors who wish to demonstrate their system may choose this category and provide a description of their system and demo. System papers should not exceed 6 pages in total.

IWSDS 2018 requires that all authors wishing to present a paper take into account:
- The paper is substantially original and will not be submitted to any other conference or journal during the IWSDS 2018 review period.
- The paper does not contain any plagiarism.
- The paper will be presented by one of the authors in-person at the conference site according to the schedule published. Any paper accepted in the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official conference proceedings.

Paper submission deadline: November 30, 2017
Paper notification deadline: December 29, 2017
