Call For Papers

SEMDIAL 2012 (SeineDial)

PARIS, SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2012

Invited Speakers:

Eve V. Clark (Stanford University)
Geert-Jan M. Kruijff (DFKI-Saarbrücken)
François Recanati (Institut Jean Nicod, École Normale Supérieure)

The SEMDIAL series of workshops brings together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience (see past SemDials).

In 2012 the workshop will be hosted by Université Paris-Diderot (Paris 7). The Semdial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and Paris is of course one of the greatest cities to visit, especially in September. SeineDial will be immediately preceded by a workshop on Dialogue and Contextualism (a separate announcement on this will appear in due course.) and will feature a special session on The Acquisition of Dialogue.

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
gesture in communication
intonational meaning in dialogue
humour in dialogue
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
contextual factors underlying child utterances in dialogue
repair in child/adult interaction
