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 Deadline for receipt of papers for review: 18 February 2007 in conjunction with Inaugural Workshop of the Language, Interaction and Computation Lab, Center For Mind / Brain Sciences (CiMeC) May 29, 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) Paul Piwek (Open University) Ipke Wachsmuth (University of Bielefeld) Possibly one more speaker to be confirmed 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) Possibly one more speaker to be confirmed Scope We invite papers on all topics related to the semantics and pragmatics of dialogues, 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 papers is 18 February 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 plain-text version of your abstract (200 words), in addition to uploading your paper. The actual paper should be an anonymous PDF file, 6 pages long (including data, tables, figures, and references), A4 paper size, 11pt Times font, 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins, 2-column format. Include a one-paragraph abstract of the entire work (about 200 words). You may find it convenient to use the style files provided by COLING/ACL 2006. Multiple submissions by the same author or group of authors are allowed, but each person may only give one oral presentation at the workshop. We will have a separate submission of late-breaking system demonstrations and ongoing project descriptions, to be presented in a poster session during the workshop. Late-breaking submissions will be two pages long; they will not be refereed, but evaluated for relevance only by the program committee chairs. Submission of late-breaking abstracts will be allowed only after review of the main session papers has concluded. The deadline for late-breaking submissions is 15 April 2007. Proceedings Final, 8-page versions of the accepted papers, together with the 2-page accepted late breaking abstracts, will be distributed in a proceedings volume at the workshop.
