ALL WELCOME

For more than 30 years, computer scientists have discussed "literate 
programming," an approach that treats computer programs as works of 
literature, as well as sources for machine instructions. I propose an 
approach to writing in the humanities that inverts that model, and 
treats scholarly prose as a source for machine-actionable citations, as 
well as a logical argument. I will draw illustrations from the Homer 
Multitext project, and will briefly survey how all of the information in 
its editorial work on Homeric manuscripts is translated into hundreds of 
thousands of RDF statements with citable URNs as their subject.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

We invite you to join us at SIGDIAL 2013. The SIGDIAL venue provides a regular forum for the presentation of cutting edge research in discourse and dialog to both academic and industry researchers. Continuing with a series of thirteen successful previous meetings, this conference spans the research interest areas of discourse and dialogue. The conference is sponsored by the SIGDIAL organization, which serves as the Special Interest Group on discourse and dialog for both ACL and ISCA.
 

Topics of Interest

The conference includes formal, corpus-based, implementation and analytical work on discourse and dialog including but not restricted to the following themes and topics:

- Discourse Processing and Dialog Systems

- Corpora, Tools and Methodology

- Pragmatic and/or Semantic Modeling

- Dimensions of Interaction

- Applications of Dialog and Discourse Processing Technology
 

For a detailed list, and this year's program, please see the SIGDIAL 2013 website, http://www.sigdial.org/workshops/conference14/.

Special Theme: Discourse and Dialogue in Social Media

Processing language in social media has attracted a noticeable amount of interest in recent years. Language in this new kind of media offers many opportunities and challenges, from the point of view of discourse and dialogue. To start with, an astounding amount of conversational data is created each day on Twitter and Facebook, but also on many blogs. Additionally, social media provides a window into a variety of human behaviors that rarely appear in the controlled data sets our community is accustomed to work with. We invite submissions on all aspects of discourse and dialogue processing of language as used in a variety of social media platforms, from Twitter and Facebook, to any type of blogs, micro-blogs, collaborative wikis, and multimedia sharing sites. Contributions highlight new insights into discourse and dialogue phenomena in this new genre, or describe new discourse and dialogue processing models emerging from it.
