Meeting Description:

The aim of this workshop is to collect research on different ways of communicating with artificial communication partners, such as dialogue systems, speech-processing robots, and artificial conversational agents, and to get an overview of which kinds of speech and language speakers really address to such systems and why. We are interested in empirical results on different types of users, different conversational styles, and the effect of situational variables on the speech and language produced by human users. Reference points may be human-to-human communication or different settings in which particular ways of talking emerge. Interesting would also be to see different ways of adapting to such different conversational styles, including phonetic/prosodic peculiarities, as well as emotional properties of speech, lexical and syntactic choices, and different discourse behaviours.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from linguistics, psychology, and computer science for the joint development of a catalogue of research desiderata, the formulation of concrete research questions and the definition of different research positions focussing on how people talk to artificial communication partners.
