DECALOG -- The 2007 Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue Università di Trento (Italy), May 30 -- June 1, 2007 http://www.cimec.unitn.it/events/decalog/index.htm in conjunction with Inaugural Workshop of the Language, Interaction and Computation Lab, Center For Mind / Brain Sciences (CiMeC) May 29, 2007 CALL FOR POSTERS AND DEMOS (deadline: 22 April 2007) Description The SEMDIAL series of workshops aim to bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neural science. In 2007 we will celebrate ten years of the SEMDIAL series with the DECALOG workshop, organized at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences, CIMeC (Centro Interdipartimentale Mente/Cervello), of the University of Trento in Rovereto. The SemDial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and Rovereto is a great place to visit. DECALOG will be held on May 30 -- June 1, 2007, in conjunction with the Inaugural Workshop of the Language, Interaction and Computation Lab of CIMeC on May 29. This one-day workshop will feature invited presentations by some of the leaders of the computational linguistics and human language technology community. Invited Speakers For DECALOG 2007 (May 30 -- June 1) Bruno Bara (University of Torino) Renato De Mori (University of Avignon) Paul Piwek (Open University) Ipke Wachsmuth (University of Bielefeld) For the Inaugural Workshop (May 29) Harald Baayen (Radboud University Nijmegen & Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics) Justine Cassell (Northwestern University) Terry Regier (University of Chicago) Steffen Staab (University of Koblenz-Landau) Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh & University of Pennsylvania) Oliviero Stock (ITC-IRST: Center for Scientific and Technological Research, Trento) Scope We invite short abstracts describing system demonstrations and/or ongoing projects relevant to the topics of the workshop, including, but not limited to: - models of common ground/mutual belief in communication - modelling agents' information states and how they get updated - multi-agent models and turn-taking - goals, intentions and commitments in communication - semantic interpretation in dialogues - reference in dialogues - ellipsis resolution in dialogues - dialogue and discourse structure - interpretation of questions and answers - nonlinguistic interaction in communication - natural language understanding and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems - multimodal dialogue systems - dialogue management in practical implementations - categorisation of dialogue moves or speech acts in corpora - designing and evaluating dialogue systems Submission Deadline for receipt of abstracts is 22 April 2007, 23:59 UTC. (Since we have to close the system manually, submissions will probably be accepted for a few hours after the deadline, but we're not making any promises.) Submit your paper via the web at http://www.easychair.org/DECALOG2007/ Before submitting you must register with the website and receive a password by email; please do this well ahead of your submission, since email is sometimes unreliable. You will also need to fill out a web form with the author details and type in (or paste) a short plain-text abstract (up to 200 words), in addition to uploading your full abstract. The full abstract should be a PDF file, 2 pages long (including data, tables, figures, and references), A4 paper size, 11pt Times font, 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins, 2-column format. You may find it convenient to use the style files provided by COLING/ACL 2006. Submission is NOT anonymous: please include the authors' names, affiliations, and e-mails. Submissions will not be peer-reviewed, but evaluated for relevance only by the program committee chairs. Due to limited space at the workshop site, we ask authors to limit their submissions to one poster/demo. Authors who have been accepted to give an oral presentation are asked not to send a different paper as a poster; you may, however, show a demo of your accepted paper (there is no need to submit a separate abstract). Proceedings The accepted 2-page abstracts will be distributed in a proceedings volume at the workshop. Important Dates Submission deadline: 22 April 2007 (Sunday) Notification: 25 April 2007 (Wednesday) Final versions due: 30 April 2007 (Monday) CIMeC inaugural workshop: 29 May 2007 (Tuesday) DECALOG 2007 workshop: 30 May -- 1 June 2007 (Wednesday--Friday) Organizers Ron Artstein (program co-chair) Laure Vieu (program co-chair) Massimo Poesio (local arrangements) Co-organizers: LUNA -- Spoken language understanding in multilingual communication systems If you have any questions, please write to one of the human organizers (not the institutional co-organizer).
