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

Workshop organized as part of European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information: ESSLLI 2010

August 16-20 (ESSLLI 2nd week) 2010, Copenhagen

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).
