The INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SPOKEN DIALOGUE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY (IWSDS) 2019 invites paper submissions in any topic related to the main conference theme "Increasing naturalness and flexibility in spoken dialogue interaction:"

* Dialogue systems and reasoning
* Machine learning methods for spoken dialogue systems
* Multi-party and multi-lingual dialogue systems
* Open and multi domain systems
* Engagement and emotion in human-robot interactions
* Spoken dialog systems for low-resource languages
* Big data and large scale spoken dialogue systems
* Domain Transfer and adaptation techniques for spoken dialog systems
* Spoken dialogue systems applications
* Connecting spoken dialogue systems to global AI
* Personalized conversational agents
* Human-Robot dialogue systems
* Resources for creating dialogue systems
* Multimodal dialogue systems
* Reasoning and Q&A through dialogue interactions

The conference will also host 3 special sessions:

* Chatbots and Conversational Agents and Dialogue Breakdown Detection Challenge (WOCHAT & DBDC)
* Designing Humour in Human-Computer Interaction with focus on dialogue technology (HUMIC-DIAL)
* Dialogue systems and lifelong learning (DSLL)

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 usual, 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=iwsds2019

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 2019 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 2019 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.

Important dates:

* Paper submission deadline:
- Regular papers: December 17, 2018
- HUMIC-DIAL, WOCHAT & DBDC and DSLL Special sessions papers: January 15, 2019
* Acceptance/rejection notification: February 1, 2019
* Camera-ready paper due: February 15, 2019
* Early bird registration deadline: February 26, 2019
* Conference dates: April 24-26, 2019

Templates for formatting are available at:

* Latex Style and Template: https://iwsds2019.unikore.it/resources/svmult.zip
* Word Template: https://iwsds2019.unikore.it/resources/T1-book.zip
* Requirements for submitting figures that are acceptable: https://iwsds2019.unikore.it/resources/Art_Guidelines.pdf
