Meeting Description:

In 2020, the 10th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition conference will be held from 1 to 2 May 2020 at National Taiwan University (NTU), Taiwan. This conference will be hosted by the Graduate Institute of Linguistics, National Taiwan University.

The CLDC aims to provide a forum for researchers interested in language, discourse, and cognition to discuss new research findings, exchange innovative ideas and share the approaches in these fields. Topics relevant to language, discourse, and cognition as well as interdisciplinary studies stimulated over the last few years have given rise to a growing body of critical findings, making CLDC an important event in the field of cognitive linguistics in East Asia.

Consequently, studies presented at the conference CLDC focus on the study of languages from many perspectives, in order to enrich the dialogue between different fields of cognitive science. As such, the main theme of this joint conference is: CONVERSATION ANALYSIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, referring to the place language often finds itself in.

CfP Submission:

The 10th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 10) provides an international forum that brings together researchers interested in language, discourse, and cognition. The focus of CLDC 10 sets ''Conversation Analysis and Artificial Intelligence'' as the main theme in the hope that we can further explore various issues bearing on the symbiosis among cognition, language and other disciplines. We would like to invite original abstracts on topics dealing with, but not limited to, the following disciplines or sub-disciplines:

Cognitive Syntax
Cognitive Semantics
Cognitive Pragmatics
Cognitive Sociolinguistics
Corpus and Computational Linguistics
Linguistic Typology
Cognitive Linguistics and Interdisciplinary Studies (Psychology, Neuroscience, Biology, Cognitive Science, Social Science, Computer Science, etc.)

The 10th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 10) features a special theme titled ''Conversation Analysis and Artificial Intelligence''. In recent years, the development of new methods and tools such as artificial intelligence (AI) allows for more possibilities to investigate languages. Linguistics knowledge such as conversation analysis, on the other hand, helps to design better and authentic conversations for machines. In view of the importance and potential of this topic, the special theme of CLDC 10 invites abstracts on research related to various aspects of CONVERSATION ANALYSIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, including theoretical and/or applied and interdisciplinary studies. Possible topics include, but are not restricted to, the following:

Conversation analysis and studies
Conversation markers
Conversation and semantics
Conversation modeling
Conversation Recommendations
Conversational AI Deployment
Language Understanding (NLU / SLU)
Language Generation
Dialogue State Tracking
Dialogue Evaluation
Dialogue Data Collection / Datasets
Slot-based Conversational AI
Retrieval-based Conversational AI
Generative Conversational AI
Multimodal Dialogues
Contextual Modeling
Semantic Representation
Dialogue Representation Learning
