The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for presenting recent research
on constraints in discourse. The target areas include the recognition of
discourse structure as well as the interpretation and generation of discourse in
a broad variety of domains. The workshop offers a forum for researchers from
diverse formal approaches. The accepted speakers will present posters and talks
that will have impact on our theoretical understanding of the role of
constraints in discourse, as well as empirical studies that shed light on their
empirical validity.
