Meeting Description:

Workshop on Theories of Information Dynamics and Interaction and their
Application to Dialogue

Information, ESSLLI 2010 (http://esslli2010cph.info/) August 16-20 (ESSLLI 2nd
week) 2010, Copenhagen

Call for Papers

Workshop Purpose and Topics:
Theoretical approaches to communication and dialogue modeling are varied and
often unrelated because separately focusing on different aspects of dialogue
(speech acts, goals, beliefs, plans, questions, conventions, roles, cooperation,
disputes, argumentation, reference, semantics-pragmatics interface...). On the
other hand, the area of foundations of multi-agent systems is inducing new
developments in logics of interaction and information dynamics, with a recent
trend towards comparison and integration. Analyzing the impact of this trend on
communication and dialogue modeling is timely.

This workshop aims at discussing formal theories and logics of information
dynamics and interaction and their applications to dialogue and communication
modeling. It is intended to bring together logicians, linguists and computer
scientists in order to provide a better understanding of the potentialities and
limitations of formal methods for the analysis of dialogue and communication.
Its scope includes not only the technical aspects of logics, but also
multidisciplinary aspects from linguistics, philosophy of language, philosophy
of social reality, social sciences (social psychology, economics).

The following are some examples of formal theories and logics that are relevant
to the workshop (no order):
- speech act theory,
- argumentation theory,
- game theory,
- public announcement logic,
- dynamic epistemic logic (DEL),
- logics of agency and power (e.g. STIT, ATL, Coalition Logic),
- theories of persuasion,
- theories of commitment,
- dynamic semantics,
- semantic approaches to interrogative clauses,
- rhetorical approaches to dialogue (e.g., segmented discourse representation

The focus of the workshop will be on recent developments, especially those that
combine several approaches (e.g. dynamic epistemic logic and speech act theory,
dynamic epistemic logic and segmented discourse representation theory, public
announcement logic and commitment theories, STIT and dynamic epistemic logic,
Coalition Logic and public announcement logic...) to deal with complex dialogue
and communication phenomena.
