The Semdial series of workshops aims to bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neural science. In 2011 the workshop will leave Europe for the first time, to be held at the Institute for Creative Technologies of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The Semdial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and L.A. is a great place to visit.
