    Catalog'04 will be the eighth in a series of workshops that aims to bring
    together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogues
    in fields such as artificial intelligence, formal semantics and pragmatics,
    computational linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. The Dial/Log
    conferences are always stimulating and fun and Barcelona, which will host
    ACL 2004 immediately following Catalog'04, is a great place to visit.
    Barcelona will also host, during the summer of 2004, its 'Forum 2004', a
    huge cultural fair full of events, exhibits, and performances
    (<http://www.barcelona2004.org/eng/>http://www.barcelona2004.org/eng/). So
    mark your calendar now.


    Massimo Poesio (University of Essex),
    Michael Tannenhaus (University of Rochester),
    Two other speakers to be announced

    We invite abstracts on all topics related to the semantics and
    pragmatics of dialogues, including, but not limited to:

    - models of common ground/mutual belief in communication
    - modelling agents' information states and how they get updated
    - multi-agent models and turn-taking
    - goals, intentions and commitments in communication
    - semantic interpretation in dialogues
    - reference in dialogues
    - ellipsis resolution in dialogues
    - dialogue and discourse structure
    - interpretation of questions and answers
    - nonlinguistic interaction in communication
    - natural language understanding and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems
    - multimodal dialogue systems
    - dialogue management in practical implementations
    - categorisation of dialogue moves or speech acts in corpora
    - designing and evaluating dialogue systems

             Subject: ESSLLI 2004 Workshop CfP: NLP for Multimedia Applications

                                        CALL FOR PAPERS
                                 NLP for Multimedia Applications
                                      16-20 August, Nancy

    organised as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and
       ESSLLI 2004 (http://esslli2004.loria.fr/) 9-20 August, 2004 in Nancy

    Workshop Organizers:
    Thierry Declerck (declerck@dfki.deb)
    Elisabeth André (andre@informatik.uni-augsburg.de)

    Workshop Purpose:
    The Workshop aims to provide a discussion platform between advanced PhD
    students and researchers, who are interested in the topics typically
    addressed at ESSLLI,
    and possible multimedia applications involving research results from
    Language Processing. The submissions should not necessarily describe
    achieved work, but can
       present advanced ideas on how to combine NLP and Multimedia applications.

    Workshop Topics:
    The workshop will explore some issues on the role natural language
    processing (NLP) can play
    within the increasing number of multimedia (MM) applications that more and
    more are
    influencing our everyday life. Multimodality can be addressed as well, as
    long as multimedia
    aspects are considered. Main questions to be addressed will be:

    - How to integrate multimedia input including natural language (spoken or
    - How to combine natural language with other media in order to generate
    high quality multimedia output;
    - How to make use of NL for efficient access to MM archives, Including
    interactive retrieval;
    - Multimedia segmentation, indexing, summarization, and presentation;
    - Multimedia and multimodal interaction;
    - How to extend multilingual NLP applications (like Question Answering etc)
    into a multi-source and multimedia setting;
    - Representation (and reasoning about) of multimedia/multimodal discourse
    and context

    The workshop will also investigate the type of formalisms and standards to
    be used for this
    integration task. Contributions on basic research and on running or
    achieved projects dealing
    with the topics are welcome.

    Papers addressing one or more of the following topics are also welcome, but
    there should be
    some clear possible relationships to NLP, including logical issues:
    MPEG, multimedia/multimodal content, coding schemes, metadata, knowledge
    representation for
    multimedia content (multimedia ontologies), semantic annotation of
    multimedia content or search,
    retrieval and Web applications.
