SemDial participants may also be interested in the "Intentions in Dialogue" workshop being held in Poznan on Tuesday 15th June (at the same location).
Modelling the achievement of effective coordination between interlocutors is often assumed to rely on some notion of strategic common ground or mutual knowledge computation. However, some recent psycholinguistic and language acquisition data seem to undermine this assumption, and computational models of dialogue often exclude high-order meta-representations of other parties' beliefs or intentions. This workshop will explore various points of views pertaining to this issue and its resolution.
Talks are by invitation, but all SemDial participants are welcome to attend and join the discussions.
