Welcome to ACCSDS
The Workshop on Architectures for Conversationally Competent Spoken Dialogue Systems, organized by Timo Baumann
will be held 5.-6. October 2012 in Hamburg.
The workshop seeks to bring together young researchers in the fields of Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence,
Spoken Dialogue Systems and Software Architecture to discuss needs, prospects, and plans for future architectures for SDSs
that help to improve the Conversational Competence
of Spoken Dialogue Systems, i.e., their capabilities in areas such
as turn-taking behaviour, alignment and rapport, multi-modality including para-linguistic signals, amicability,
long-term relation building, and others.
While there will be a limited number of sponsored participants, we invite everyone else
to send us an e-mail with a short statement of interest if you would like to participate.
Keynote speaker: Kristinn R. Thórisson
This workshop is sponsored through the Körber Foundation
in its programme for young researchers (Körber-Fonds Nachwuchsforschung) by a grant to Timo Baumann
