Interspeech2006 - ICSLP Satellite Workshop

Dialogue on Dialogues

                      Multidisciplinary Evaluation of Advanced Speech-based
Interactive Systems

Endorsed by SIGDial

Immediately before the 9th International Conference on
Spoken Language Processing (Interspeech 2006 — ICSLP)

September 17, 2006, Pittsburgh, PA
!! NEW !! Programme & Practicalities

The workshop will be a full day meeting with the participants actively taking part in the discussions and working groups. The participants should submit position papers prior to the workshop, and the presentations will be chosen by the Programme Committee on the basis of the paper's potential to bring forward novel aspects and solid view-points to the main topics. However, the workshop will not take the form of presentation of these papers. Rather it will consist of a series of activities that will integrate the issues described in the position papers – people working in groups according to their interests as expressed in the position papers.

We welcome submission of papers describing theoretical and empirical contributions on the workshop topics. Papers should describe ideas as well as practical experience on project implementations, and we also encourage presentation of contraversial, even provocative arguments so as to promote discussion. Possible demos can be associated with the papers if desired, given the presenters bring their own laptop.

The papers must be no longer than 4 pages. In addition to this, two additional pages are allowed as an appendix which may include extended examples, algorithms, graphical representations, etc.

Papers should be sent electronically to the e-mail address:

Papers must be submitted in pdf format, and must be received no later than April 30.

The submission format for papers is the same as for Interspeech submissions. Instructions as well as Word templates and Latex sources are available at:

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop website. Other publication channels will also be explored for extended papers after the workshop (a book, Special Issue).
