[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Final CFP (Deadline Extended): Young Researchers’ Roundtable on Spoken Dialogue Systems (YRRSDS) 2018

Kalesha Bullard
*SUBMISSION DEADLINE (EXTENDED):  May 7, 2018The 14th annual Young
Researchers’ Roundtable on Spoken Dialogue Systems (YRRSDS) will be held at
RMIT, Melbourne, Australia (collocated with ACL and SIGdial) on July 10-11,
2018.YRRSDS (www.yrrsds.org <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.yrrsds.org&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=e69yoDCo0LsZ9SofHx73DziLsg0scTihI2GA3Fcanqo&s=YyotdI5lFx7qArVui74UJa6J24diPcUXW30VKNfFhSg&e=>) is an annual workshop
for graduate students, postdoctoral students, and junior researchers
working on spoken dialogue systems in both academia and industry. The
workshop serves as an interdisciplinary forum for creative thinking about
current issues in spoken dialogue systems research and helps to create an
international network of young researchers working in the field. We invite
researchers at an early stage of their career (no age limit) to submit a
2-page position paper. This should include their past, present and future
work, a short bio, and topic suggestions for discussions. Poster
presentation by all participants is expected. However, posters need only
present current work and not necessarily be from a published paper.
Submission topics include, but are not limited to:•  Open domain, task
oriented dialogue, and chat systems•  Models of dialogue: statistical,
symbolic, and hybrid approaches•  Dialogue state tracking and policy
learning for dialogue management•  Spoken language understanding and
natural language generation for dialogue•  Evaluation methodology for
dialogue systems•  Semantics, pragmatics, and context in dialogue systems•
 Incremental spoken dialogue systems•  Situated interaction with virtual
and robotic agents•  Psycholinguistic influences on dialogue system design•
 Establishing social relationships and engagement with the user•  Data
collection and dataset sharing for statistical models•  Industry
development cycles, requirements, and applicationsImportant DatesSubmission
