17 - 21 July 2017, Formal approaches to the dynamics of linguistic interaction, Toulouse, France
It is uncontentious that natural language use involves interaction; between participants in a dialogue, between modalities such as vision, gesture and speech, and between new and existing information in language acquisition, for example. For this ESSLLI 2017 workshop we maintain a broad notion of interaction, roughly the production and exchange of information between agents of some sort, be they natural or artificial (e.g. avatars or modelling devices as in certain types of logics). We favour contributions which focus on the dynamics of the information exchange and discuss formal models to reconstruct it.
We are accepting submissions for both posters and oral presentations. Papers should be anonymous and up to 4 pages of content (with one additional page for references). Submissions deadline: 24 February 2017.
In addition to topics tied up with n-party communication using different communication media and human-computer interaction we also welcome contributions dealing with exchanges between semiotic systems or contact between languages. In addition, on a more fine-grained level we would like to have contributions on interaction between different modalities such as speech and, respectively, nonverbal context, intonation, eye-tracking processes, gesture, facial expression and perhaps still others.
