IWSDS2011 - Workshop on Paralinguistic Information and its Integration in Spoken Dialogue Systems
Granada, Spain, September 1-3, 2011

Following on the success of IWSDS2009 (in Irsee, Germany) and IWSDS2010 (in Gotemba Kogen Resort, Japan) this 3rd International Workshop on Spoken Dialogue Systems (IWSDS2011) will bring together researchers from all over the world working in the field of spoken dialogue systems. It will provide an international forum for the presentation of research and applications and for lively discussions among researchers as well as industrialists.

This year's workshop designates "Paralinguistic Information and its Integration in Spoken Dialogue Systems" as a special theme of discussion. We would also like to encourage discussions of common issues of spoken dialogue systems.

The workshop will be held just after INTERSPEECH 2011, Florence, Italy, August 28-31, 2011. It is endorsed by SIGDIAL, a SIG of ISCA and ACL, and is supported by the Korean Society of Speech Scientists. The workshop proceedings will be published in a book by Springer.
