14 - 15 June 2018, Workshop on Dialogue and Perception 2018 (DaP 2018), Gothenburg, Sweden

Date: 14 - 15 June 2018
Location: Gothenburg, Sweden
Deadline: Wednesday 4 April 2018

The study of dialogue investigates how natural language is used in interaction between interlocutors and how coordination and successful communication is achieved. However, studies on dialogue have often taken for granted that we align our perceptual representations, an unsustainable assumption when we consider interactions between agents with obviously different perceptual capabilities, such as humans and avators or robots.

Contrarily, studies of perception have focussed on how an agent interacts with and interprets the information from their perceptual environment. In the last decade there has been impressive progress on integrated approaches to language, action, and perception. However, these have a limited integration to the dynamics of dialogue and often fail to take into account the incremental and context sensitive nature of language and the environment.

The aim of this workshop is to initiate a genuine dialogue between these related areas and to examine different approaches from computational, linguistic and psychological perspectives and how these can inform each other. It will feature invited talks by leading researchers in these areas, and high level contributed papers, presented as posters, selected through open competition and rigorous review.

We invite papers of between 2-4 pages of content and up to one additional page for references, following the ACL style guidelines. The conference proceedings will be published online, with an ISSN, on the CLASP website. Authors will have the opportunity to extend their papers for the post-proceedings and will retain the copyright of their papers and be free to publish them elsewhere, with acknowledgement.
