2nd ACL SIGdial Workshop on Discourse and Dialogue Aalborg, Denmark, September 1-2 (Just before Eurospeech 2001-Scandinavia) CALL FOR PANEL DISCUSSION PROPOSALS Deadline for submissions: June 4, 2001. In addition to regular paper and abstract submisions, the program committee of the 2nd ACL SIGdial Workshop on Discourse and Dialogue organizes the following two panel sessions for which they invite proposals. Panel Session I Spoken Dialogue Systems: Theory that is Ready for Practice For this panel session, we invite submissions that focus on ideas whose theory, being of syntactic, semantic, pragmatic, corpus-linguistic, statistic and/or prosodic nature, has been studied in great detail and that is ready or at least has a clear potential to be included in the next advance of spoken dialogue systems. Submission format should follow the same guidelines as plenary papers and should contain the following content: --- a synopsis of the idea with appropriate references; --- a description of problem domains where an implemented system could make good use of the idea; --- a description of how the idea's utility could be evaluated; --- (optional) a description of necessary technologies; Questions may be directed to Ronnie Smith/Jan van Kuppevelt <sigdial2001_(on)_ims.uni-stuttgart.de< /a>> Panel Session II Discourse Structure and Conversational Implicatures For this panel session, we invite submissions on operational models of conversational implicatures which focus on their discourse-structural status. Possible topics of interest for this panel discussion are: the nature of conversational implicatures and their relation to presuppositional inferences, discourse-structural (rhetorical, referential, etc.) constraints on the generation and interpretation of conversational implicatures, question-focus and (particularized vs. generalized) conversational implicatures, conversational implicatures and (underspecified vs. optimal) linguistic form, e.g. the form of referring expressions, and conversational implicatures in the context of dynamic, topic- or goal-related discourse processing. Submission format should follow the same guidelines as plenary papers and should contain the following content: --- a synopsis of the operational model with appropriate references; --- a description of main topics for the panel discussion; --- a set of topic-related position statements; Questions may be directed to Jan van Kuppevelt/Ronnie Smith <sigdial2001_(on)_ims.uni-stuttgart.de< /a>> Information on the SIGdial 2001 Workshop can be found at the workshop webpage: http://www.sigdial.org/sigdialwo rkshop01
