This volume presents important results of the Collaborative Research Center
(Sonderforschungsbereich) "Situated Artificial Communicators," which was
funded by grants from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft) for more than twelve years.
The contributions focus on different aspects of human-human and
human-machine interaction in situations which closely model everyday
workplace demands. The authors are linguists, psycho- und neurolinguists,
psychologists and computer scientists at Bielefeld University. They jointly
tackle questions of information processing in task-oriented communication.
The role of key notions such as context, integration (of multimodal
information), reference, coherence, and robustness is explored in great depth.
Some remarkable findings and recurrent phenomena reveal that communication
is, to a large extent, a matter of joint activity. The interdisciplinary
approach integrates theory, description and experimentation with simulation

Universität Bielefeld, Germany.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
