interest in development or evaluation of deployable dialogue systems. It is

recent research developments, to sponsor meetings in discourse and dialogue
processing, and to make available all forms of relevant resource material.

Babel Patronage

Babel, the multilingual, multicultural online journal of arts and
ideas (http://www.towerofbabel.com) is proud to announce that it now
has eight languages represented on the site: English, French, German,
Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Tagalog and Russian, and will soon be
adding Bulgarian, Catalan and Hungarian.  It takes a lot of valuable
time, effort and resources to be able to build the site but at this
time Babel still receives no funding and depends on contributions for
the support of its operations. If you'd like to support Babel, please
