16-18 July 2016, 20th Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue (Semdial 2016 / JerSem), Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA

Date: 16-18 July 2016
Location: Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA
Deadline: 20 April 2016

JerSem will be the 20th 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 2016 the workshop will be hosted by the Rutgers University Center for Cognitive Science, at its downtown New Brunswick Campus, approximately one hour from New York City. The workshop is timed to immediately follow IJCAI 2016 in New York City, and will be collocated at Rutgers with NASSLLI, the North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information.

The workshop will feature a special session on Questions Under Discussion, focusing on the role of discourse purposes in utterance interpretation and dialogue structure, and their reflection in utterance form.

We invite submissions on all topics related to the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue. Full paper submission deadline: 20 April 2016. JerSem will also provide authors with an opportunity to submit 2-page late-breaking abstracts describing system demonstrations and poster presentations, with an anticipated deadline in early June.
