Meeting Description:

PotsDial will be the 25th edition of the SemDial workshop series, which aims to bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as formal semantics and pragmatics, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience. In 2021 the workshop will be hosted by the Department of Linguistics at the University of Potsdam, Germany. (If the pandemic situation allows for it, there will be a local component for those who want to travel to Potsdam, but fully remote participation, including presentation, will be possible. Please see the website for updates closer to the date.)
