First Call for Papers:

LONDIAL: 2008 WORKSHOP ON THE SEMANTICS AND PRAGMATICS OF DIALOGUE

in conjunction with:

Final WORKSHOP OF Dialogue Matters: Leverhulme International Network
Project.

King�??s College London, June 2nd�?? June 4th, 2008


The SEMDIAL series of workshops aim to bring together researchers
working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as
artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, formal
semantics/pragmatics, philosophy, psychology, and neural science.
In 2008 we will celebrate eleven years of the SEMDIAL series with the
LONDIAL workshop, to be organized at King�??s College London in
conjunction with the Interaction, Media and Communication Centre at
Queen Mary London. The SemDial workshops are always stimulating and fun,
and with King�??s being in the heart of London, just across from the South
Bank Centre, there will be no shortage of evening entertainment.

LONDIAL 2008 will be held in conjunction with the closing workshop of
the Leverhulme-funded network Dialogue Matters: Foundations for
Technology Development, initially set up between London (KCL, QMUL),
Edinburgh/Glasgow, Stanford, Stony Brook, Gothenburg, Essex, with
additional collaborators now also participating. This one-day workshop
on 2nd June (and possibly the previous day) will feature invited
presentations by members of this group and other leaders of the
computational linguistics and human language technology community.

There is also a planned session on dialogue situated in joint action.

We are still waiting to finalize many details; this preliminary
announcement is intended to let you know of the dates and deadlines.
