Aims and Scope
D&D seeks previously unpublished, high quality articles on the analysis of discourse and dialogue that contain
- experimental and/or theoretical studies related to the construction, representation, and maintenance of (linguistic) context
- linguistic analysis of phenomena characteristic of discourse and/or dialogue (including, but not limited to: reference and anaphora, presupposition and accommodation, topicality and salience, implicature, discourse structure and rhetorical relations, discourse markers and particles, the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue acts, questions, imperatives, non-sentential utterances, intonation, and meta-communicative phenomena such as repair and grounding)
- experimental and/or theoretical studies of agents' information states and their dynamics in conversational interaction
- new analytical frameworks that advance theoretical studies of discourse and dialogue
- research on systems performing coreference resolution, discourse structure parsing, event and temporal structure, and reference resolution in multimodal communication
- experimental and/or theoretical results yielding new insight into non-linguistic interaction in communication
- work on natural language understanding (including spoken language understanding), dialogue management, reasoning, and natural language generation (including text-to-speech) in dialogue systems
- work related to the design and engineering of dialogue systems (including, but not limited to: evaluation, usability design and testing, rapid application deployment, embodied agents, affect detection, mixed-initiative, adaptation, and user modeling).
- extremely well-written surveys of existing work.
The audience is primarily researchers on discourse and dialogue and its associated fields, including computer scientists, linguists, psychologists, philosophers, roboticists, sociologists.
