Special Theme: Discourse and Dialogue in Social Media

Processing language in social media has attracted a noticeable
amount of interest in recent years. Language in this new kind of
media offers many opportunities and challenges, from the point of
view of discourse and dialogue. To start with, an astounding
amount of conversational data is created each day on Twitter and
Facebook, but also on many blogs. Additionally, social media
provides a window into a variety of human behaviors that rarely
appear in the controlled data sets our community is accustomed to
work with. We invite submissions on all aspects of discourse and
dialogue processing of language as used in a variety of social
media platforms, from Twitter and Facebook, to any type of blogs,
micro-blogs, collaborative wikis, and multimedia sharing sites.
Contributions highlight new insights into discourse and dialogue
phenomena in this new genre, or describe new discourse and
dialogue processing models emerging from it.
