The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for presenting recent
research on constraints in discourse. The target areas include the
recognition of discourse structure as well as the interpretation and
generation of discourse in a broad variety of domains. The workshop
offers a forum for researchers from diverse formal approaches. The
accepted speakers will present posters and talks that will have impact
on our theoretical understanding of the role of constraints in
discourse, as well as empirical studies that shed light on their
empirical validity.

Workshop (and publication) language is English

The workshop is endorsed by SIGdial, the Special Interest Group on
Discourse and Dialogue, and SIGsem, the Special Interest Group on
