DiSpoL workshop October 1st and 2nd in Saarbrücken/Germany


The DiSpoL Workshop aims at bringing together researchers from different areas working on theoretical and methodological issues in the field of discourse and corpus annotation.

Effective discourse in any language is characterised by clear relations between sentences and coherent structure. But languages vary in how relations and structure are signaled, and the same is true for different text types and modes. While most discourse-annotated resources are based on written text, less work has been done on annotating and investigating discourse relations in spoken language. It is exactly this domain in which we expect crucial differences concerning the realisation of discourse relations and discourse structure.

The DiSpoL workshop will focus on the identification and annotation of discourse relations in spoken language and in spoken-like text types such as computer-mediated communication or user-generated content from social media. This will raise questions concerning additional properties (and classes) of discourse-relational devices (DRDs) present in spoken data that are not captured by frameworks developed for written texts. How can these be identified and annotated in terms of categories designed for written language?
The overall goal of the workshop is the development of a unified annotation framework for DRDs that will increase the inter-operability of existing resources (such as the Penn Discourse Treebank, the RST Discourse Treebank, ...) and that is applicable to different languages and text types, including spoken and written dimensions.

We invite the submission of abstracts that address research on DRDs in spoken (or spoken-like) language in one of the following areas:

* functional or formal classifications
* features in DRDs description and classification that are relevant for spoken(-like) language
* multilingual analysis of DRDs in spoken(-like) language
* psycholinguistic/experimental approaches to the investigation of discourse relations in spoken(-like) language

The selected presentations will contribute to the issues discussed within the workshop.
