Call For Papers

The SEMDIAL series of workshops aim to bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neural science. In 2011 the workshop will leave Europe for the first time, to be held at the Institute for Creative Technologies of the University of Southern California in Playa Vista (Los Angeles). The SemDial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and L.A. is a great place to visit.

We invite papers on all topics related to the semantics and pragmatics of dialogues, including, 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
- nonlinguistic interaction in communication
- 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
