2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: International Workshop on the Semantic Representation of Spoken Language 2007 (SRSL7) Salamanca, Spain (12-Nov-2007 - 13-Nov-2007) http://www.dfki.de/~mpla/SRSL/ The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in the semantic representation of spoken corpora, especially spontaneous speech. The current state-of-the-art supports solutions from very different backgrounds, and still remain important and complex issues to deal with, such as the accurate segmentation of speech in semantic units. In-depth research on the semantic representation of speech can provide us with a suitable basis for further analysis of related linguistic levels, like prosody or pragmatics. Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research concerning the semantic representation of spoken language. They can be full (6-8 pages) or short papers (3-4 pages). Possible topics include: -Corpus annotation: structures (frame-banks, proposition banks, etc.) and concepts (ontologies, named entities, etc.). -Content identification and segmentation in spontaneous speech. -Semantic interpretation in dialogues. -Dialogue and discourse structures. -Topic Detection and tracking. -Multimodal Representations including speech. -Natural language understanding and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems. -Speech in embedded systems. -Project descriptions about applications of spoken corpora semantic representations. -Standardisation work. Submissions must be written in English and should follow the Springer format. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the author's names and affiliations. Submission will be via email and must be sent to manuel(dot)alcantara(at)dfki(dot)de. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the workshop. Both full (6-8 pages including references) and short papers (3-4 pages including references) will have an oral presentation at the workshop within the framework of the CAEPIA conference in Salamanca (Spain). The University of Salamanca offers 15 grants/awards to facilitate the attendance of doctoral and young doctors both to the event.
