Call For Papers

*** MOTIVATION ***

When people look for information or find particular services, they used to put queries into search engines and choose a desired one among candidates. Although this way of human computer interaction (HCI) makes it possible to find their desired ones much efficiently than before, now they want more convenient way. Dialog system is the one, which makes people to communicate with computers through natural language or voices. The dialog system is successfully applied to various applications, such as intelligent speaker (e.g., Amazon echo, Google home) and intelligent counsellor, courtesy of great advance of machine learning techniques. It usually consists of several cascade steps (e.g., speech to text, natural language understanding), and it is necessary to find a way of improving of the steps and effectively incorporating them. We want to discuss and share the knowledge about how to solve these issues.


*** THEME, PURPOSE, and SCOPE ***

This workshop aims to create opportunities to discuss about the state-of-the-art studies, and to share on-going works. We hope that this will enhance collaboration among the researchers related to dialog systems. There are many challenging issues, such as out-of-domain detection, distant voice recognition, and end-to-end systems. We want to discuss about how to solve such issues, and share the experiences of applying the dialog system to real-world applications.

We invite submissions on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Intelligent dialog systems
- Chatbot systems
- Speech recognition
- Speech synthesis
- Natural language understanding
- Information extraction
- Dialog management
- Language resources and representation scheme for dialog systems


*** PAPER SUBMISSION ***

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers, 4 pages, in English according to the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. The author list may appear in the paper, but can be omitted if the authors want to. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee of the workshop. All accepted workshop papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library as conference proceedings.

The direct link for paper submission is https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IWDS2018/Submission/Index.

Submission of Workshop Papers: November 5, 2017
Notification of Paper Acceptance: November 19, 2017
Camera Ready Submission: November 27, 2017
Author Registration: November 27, 2017
