Last Call for Extended Abstracts (2-3 pages) for the

                             Symposium on
                  Dialogue Modelling and Generation

                          Vrije Universiteit
                        Amsterdam, Netherlands
                             July 6, 2005

to be held as part of the annual meeting of the Society for Text &
Discourse (ST&D) July 6-9, 2005 as announced at

This symposium is intended to tackle issues in the semantics and
pragmatics of dialogue and dialogue generation. It aims at bringing
together the dialogue modelling and language generation/production
communities and will provide an opportunity for researchers from a
variety of disciplines, including linguistics, computer science and
psycholinguistics, to exchange ideas.

We invite talks elaborating on important theoretical notions in
dialogue modelling -such as constraints (Asher & Lascarides, 2003, and
many other recent papers), the role of domain knowledge (e.g., Ludwig,
2003, and, again, many more) and the influence of social relations
between interlocutors on dialogue behaviour (going back to the seminal
work by Brown and Levinson, 1978)- and ask presenters to shed light on
these or other theoretically fruitful notions in dialogue modelling

- relating them to issues in language generation/production
- drawing out similarities and differences between
  applications of such notions in discourse generation
  versus interpretation or
- describing computational/implemented models, in
  particular, for generation/production or
- comparing psycholinguistic with linguistic or engineering
  approaches to dialogue modelling.

The symposium will thus be a natural complement to ones that deal with
NL interpretation or structural properties of discourse.

Participants have to register for the main meeting

The Symposium is endorsed by SIGGen and by SIGDial

We are currently in conversation with a publisher regarding
publication of selected symposium papers as a book after the meeting.
