SEMDIAL 2012 (SeineDial)
The 16th WORKSHOP ON THE SEMANTICS AND PRAGMATICS OF DIALOGUE
The SEMDIAL series of workshops brings together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience (see past SemDials).
In 2012 the workshop will be hosted by Université Paris-Diderot (Paris 7). The Semdial workshops are always stimulating and fun, and Paris is of course one of the greatest cities to visit, especially in September. SeineDial will be immediately preceded by a workshop on Dialogue and Contextualism (a separate announcement on this will appear in due course.) and will feature a special session on The Acquisition of Dialogue.
We invite papers on all topics related to the semantics and pragmatics of dialogues, including, but not limited to:
Organizing Committee: Jonathan Ginzburg (chair), Anne Abeillé, Margot Colinet, Philip Miller, Gregoire Winterstein
Programme Committee co-chairs: Staffan Larsson (Gothenburg University), Sarah Brown Schmidt (University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign)
SemDial Presidents: Raquel Fernández (University of Amsterdam), David Schlangen (Bielefeld University)
