                               Call for Papers

                     (Workshop at the GLDV-Jahrestagung 2005)

                          30 March - 01 April 2005
                                Universität Bonn

                        Deadline: 02 November 2004



Human-computer communication requires a model of turn taking, i.e. the
machine has to be able to switch between the speaker- and the
hearer-mode.  The hearer-mode maps language signs into a
representation of their content.  The speaker-mode maps content into a
corresponding signs of a language of choice.

This workshop invites original work on all aspects of turn taking, for
example, relating automatic word form recognition to word form
production, relating syntactic-semantic parsing to semantic-syntactic
parsing, analyzing the inferences needed for interpretation and
production, defining the data structure for storing content, or
designing the control structure for relating language interpretation
and production.  In addition to papers on grammar and software systems
modeling turn taking, empirical investigations on dialogue systems
will be considered.

Workshop chair:
Roland Hausser, Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
