Please apologize cross-postings Symposium on Dialogue Modelling and Generation http://lubitsch.lili.uni-bielefeld.de/DMG ----------------------------------------- Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands July 6, 2005 to be held as part of the annual meeting of the Society for Text & Discourse (ST&D) July 6-9, 2005 as announced at http://www.let.vu.nl/conference/std2005/ This symposium is intended to tackle issues in the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue and dialogue generation. It aims at bringing together those from the dialogue modelling and language generation/production communities and will provide an opportunity for researchers from a variety of disciplines, including linguistics, computer science and psycholinguistics, to exchange ideas. We invite talks elaborating on important theoretical notions in dialogue modelling -such as constraints (Asher & Lascarides, 2003, and many other recent papers), the role of domain knowledge (e.g., Ludwig, 2003, and, again, many more) and the influence of social relations between interlocutors on dialogue behaviour (going back to the seminal work by Brown and Levinson, 1978)- and ask presenters to shed light on these or other theoretically fruitful notions in dialogue modelling by: - relating them to issues in language generation/production or - drawing out similarities and differences between applications of such notions in discourse generation versus interpretation or - describing computational/implemented models, in particular, for generation/production or - comparing psycholinguistic with linguistic or engineering approaches to dialogue modelling. The symposium will thus be a natural complement to ones that deal with NL interpretation or structural properties of discourse.
