 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

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
