[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Foundations of Situated and Multimodal Communication (IWCS?==?utf-8?q? workshop)

Julie HUNTER
The Foundations of Situated and Multimodal Communication
=========================================================
Final Call for Papers


Workshop at the International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS)
September 19, 2017
Montpellier, France


WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION AND TOPICS
===============================

We invite submissions on  foundational, conceptual, and practical issues involving situated and multimodal communication. Relevant questions include but are not limited to:

-What is the nature of the non-linguistic context?
-What is the range of ways that gesture and speech exploit the non-linguistic context and how do they exploit it differently?
-What are the practical and/or computational advantages in using non-linguistic context to convey meaning?
-How can we measure the effects of non-linguistic context on meaning?
-How do we exploit corpora to address the task of analysing multimodal communication?
-How should we model agents for human-robot interactions?
-Should we ensure that interlocutors' vision of the external world is coherent? If so, how do we do this?
-How do we model cases in which different interlocutors adopt different perspectives on the same non-linguistic context?
-How do we handle the need to disambiguate a message?

Cynthia Matuszek, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Siddharth Narayanaswamy, University of Oxford
