    Edilog 2002 will be the sixth 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.

    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
    - 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


    Authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract of at most 5
    single-column pages (for talks with a duration of 30' plus 10'
    discussion) together with a separate page specifying the authors'
    names, affiliation, address, and e-mail address. The abstracts should
    be submitted electronically (in LaTeX, postscript, html, ascii, or pdf
    format) to: Submission have to be in
    English, which is the workshop language. For the accepted talks, a
    LaTeX style will be made available.
