 First Call for Papers

 EDILOG 2002


 Edinburgh University
 Sept 4th-6th 2002

Edilog 2002 will be the sixth in a series of workshops that aims to
bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of
dialogues in fields such as artificial intelligence, formal semantics
and pragmatics, computational linguistics, philosophy, and psychology.

We invite abstracts 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
- 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


Authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract of at most 5
single-column pages (for talks with a duration of 30' plus 10'
discussion) together with a separate page specifying the authors'
names, affiliation, address, and e-mail address. The abstracts should
be submitted electronically (in LaTeX, postscript, html, ascii, or pdf
format) to: Submission have to be in English, which
is the workshop language. For the accepted talks, a LaTeX style will
be made available.


Abstracts due: May 10th
Acceptance notice: July 5th
Final version due: August 9th
