16-20 August 2010, Workshop on Theories of Information Dynamics and Interaction and their Application to Dialogue, Copenhagen, Denmark

Date: 16-20 August 2010
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Deadline: 12 April 2010

Theoretical approaches to communication and dialogue modeling are varied and often unrelated because separately focusing on different aspects of dialogue (speech acts, goals, beliefs, plans, questions, conventions, roles, cooperation, disputes, argumentation, reference, semantics-pragmatics interface). On the other hand, the area of foundations of multi-agent systems is inducing new developments in logics of interaction and information dynamics, with a recent trend towards comparison and integration. Analyzing the impact of this trend on communication and dialogue modeling is timely.

This workshop aims at discussing formal theories and logics of information dynamics and interaction and their applications to dialogue and communication modeling. It is intended to bring together logicians, linguists and computer scientists in order to provide a better understanding of the potentialities and limitations of formal methods for the analysis of dialogue and communication. Its scope includes not only the technical aspects of logics, but also multidisciplinary aspects from linguistics, philosophy of language, philosophy of social reality, social sciences (social psychology, economics). The focus of the workshop will be on recent developments, especially those that combine several approaches to deal with complex dialogue and communication phenomena.

For more information, see This workshop is organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information 2010.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract presenting work relevant to the area of information dynamics, interaction and dialogue. Deadline for submission: Apr 12, 2010.
