--------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLEASE CIRCULATE - apologies for multiple copies SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS Workshop on Theories of Information Dynamics and Interaction and their Application to Dialogue http://www.irit.fr/~Laure.Vieu/Esslli10 Workshop organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2010) http://esslli2010cph.info/ August 16-20 (ESSLLI 2nd week) 2010, Copenhagen --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop Purpose and Topics: Theoretical approaches to communication and dialogue modeling are varied and often unrelated because separately focusing on different aspects of dialogue (speech acts, goals, beliefs, plans, questions, conventions, roles, cooperation, disputes, argumentation, reference, semantics-pragmatics interface...). On the other hand, the area of foundations of multi-agent systems is inducing new developments in logics of interaction and information dynamics, with a recent trend towards comparison and integration. Analyzing the impact of this trend on communication and dialogue modeling is timely. This workshop aims at discussing formal theories and logics of information dynamics and interaction and their applications to dialogue and communication modeling. It is intended to bring together logicians, linguists and computer scientists in order to provide a better understanding of the potentialities and limitations of formal methods for the analysis of dialogue and communication. Its scope includes not only the technical aspects of logics, but also multidisciplinary aspects from linguistics, philosophy of language, philosophy of social reality, social sciences (social psychology, economics). The following are some examples of formal theories and logics that are relevant to the workshop (no order): speech act theory, argumentation theory, game theory, public announcement logic, dynamic epistemic logic (DEL), logics of agency and power (e.g. STIT, ATL, Coalition Logic), theories of persuasion, theories of commitment, dynamic semantics, semantic approaches to interrogative clauses, rhetorical approaches to dialogue (e.g., Segmented Discourse Representation Theory). The focus of the workshop will be on recent developments, especially those that combine several approaches (e.g. dynamic epistemic logic and speech act theory, dynamic epistemic logic and segmented discourse representation theory, public announcement logic and commitment theories, STIT and dynamic epistemic logic, Coalition Logic and public announcement logic...) to deal with complex dialogue and communication phenomena. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Invited speakers: Patrick Blackburn, LORIA, INRIA Nancy Jeroen Groenendijk, ILLC, University of Amsterdam --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop Organizers: Emiliano Lorini ("lorini at irit.fr") and Laure Vieu ("vieu at irit.fr"), IRIT-CNRS, Toulouse --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop Programme Committee: Nicholas Asher, IRIT-CNRS, Toulouse Guillaume Aucher, Univ. of Luxembourg Alexandru Baltag, Oxford Univ.
