Meeting Description:

Call for participation for the

Symposium on Dialogue Modelling and Generation

held on occasion of
Annual meeting of the Society for Text & Discourse
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
July 7, 2005 (New Date!)

The symposium is held as part of the Annual meeting of the the Society for Text
& Discourse (ST&D), July 6-9 2005.

This symposium is intended to tackle issues in the semantics and pragmatics of
dialogue and dialogue generation. It aims at bringing together 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 invited 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
asked 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 natural
language interpretation or structural properties of discourse.

The Symposium is endorsed by SIGGen as well as by SIGDial
