Call For Papers

SIGDIAL 2017 CONFERENCE
August 15-17, 2017

The 18th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue, Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany. August 15-17, 2017 (before INTERSPEECH).

The SIGDIAL venue provides a regular forum for the presentation of cutting edge research in discourse and dialogue to both academic and industry researchers. Continuing with a series of successful seventeen previous meetings, this conference spans the research interest area of discourse and dialogue. The conference is sponsored by the SIGdial organization, which serves as the Special Interest Group in discourse and dialogue for both ACL and ISCA. SIGDIAL 2017 will be co-located with SaarDial (SemDial 2017), and will be held immediately after YRRSDS 2017, the Young Researchers' Roundtable on Spoken Dialog Systems and before INTERSPEECH 2017.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

We welcome formal, corpus-based, implementation, experimental, or analytical work on discourse and dialogue including, but not restricted to, the following themes:

Discourse Processing and Dialogue Systems
Discourse semantic and pragmatic issues in NLP applications such as text summarization, question answering, and information retrieval.
Spoken, multi-modal, and text/web based dialogue systems, their components, evaluation and applications.
Corpora, Tools and Methodology
Corpus-based and experimental work on discourse and spoken, text-based and multi-modal dialogue, including supporting topics such as annotation tools and schemes, and corpora.
Pragmatic and/or Semantic Modeling
The pragmatics and/or semantics of discourse and dialogue (i.e. beyond a single sentence).

MENTORING

Submissions with innovative core ideas that may be in need of language (English) or organizational assistance will be flagged for "mentoring" and accepted with recommendation to revise with a mentor. An experienced mentor who has previously published in the SIGDIAL venue will then help the authors of these flagged papers prepare their submissions for publication.

BEST PAPER AWARDS

In order to recognize significant advancements in dialog/discourse science and technology, SIGDIAL will recognize BEST PAPER AWARDs. All papers at the conference are eligible for the best paper awards. A selection committee consisting of prominent researchers in the fields of interest will select the recipients of the awards.
