SemDial 2017 - SaarDial - 1st Call for Papers!

SaarDial will be the 21st edition of the SemDial workshop series,
which aims to bring together researchers working on the semantics
and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as formal semantics and
pragmatics, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence,
philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience. In 2017 the workshop
will be hosted by the Spoken Language Systems Group, Saarland University,
and will be collocated with the 18th Annual SIGdial Meeting on

- goals, intentions and commitments in communication
- turn-taking and interaction control
- semantic/pragmatic interpretation in dialogue
- dialogue and discourse structure
- categorisation of dialogue phenomena in corpora
- child-adult interaction
- language learning through dialogue
- gesture, gaze, and intonational meaning in communication
- multimodal dialogue
- interpretation and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems
- dialogue management
- designing and evaluating dialogue systems
