Meeting Description:

4th Bellagio International Workshop on Human-Computer Conversation
Grand Hotel
Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio, Italy
6-7 October, 2008

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together academic researchers and
industrialists concerned with all aspects of human-computer conversation and the
associated research issues of emotion, relationships, companionship,
embodiment, ECAs, memory, evaluation etc. that persistent, personalised
computational agents will need solutions for if they are to exist, as they will,
in the reasonably near future. The earlier workshops in this series (see First
and Third at http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/research/ilash/Meetings/Bellagio/) were
highly successful at getting industry groups to display their interests and
prototypes as did university and independent researchers.

Since 2000, there has been a great upsurge in research funding, and another aim
of the meeting will be to bring together members of currently active research
consortia in the EU and US, such as CALLAS, CALO, COSY, AMIDA, INDIGO, SOPRANO
and others; the workshop is being held under the auspices of the EU 6FP IP
Companions (www.companions- project.org)(2006-2010).

Later, we shall send out calls for papers, invited speakers and the program
committee, but this notice is for your diaries and to register expressions of
interest (for the mailing list) if you wish at eventsoii.ox.ac.uk. Further
enquiries to Yorick Wilks (yorickdcs.shef.ac.uk). Bellagio and the Villa
Serbelloni are among the finest spots in the world for thought and reflection:
