Our colleagues Wolfgang Minker (Ulm University) and Zoraida Callejas (University of Granada) together with Keiichi Yasumoto (Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan) are organizing a NII Shonan Meeting on Spoken Multimodal Dialogue Systems Technology for Pervasive Computing, that is taking place from 30th September to 3rd October in Shonan, Japan.
NII Shonan Meeting is a series of informatics seminars, managed by the Japanese National Institute of Informatics, which aims to internationally promote informatics research providing a premier venue for world-class scientists.
During the meeting, several topics related to MENHIR areas of interest are being addressed, including (among others):
- Challenges of spoken and multimodal dialogue interaction.
- Context awareness for multimodal dialogue systems.
- Personalization and user-centered development of dialogue systems for pervasive systems.
- Experimental design, user studies and evaluation of pervasive multimodal dialogue systems.
- Life-cycle, requirement elicitation, robustness to change, standardization and simulation.
- Description, development and sharing of resources: corpora compilation, annotation tools and approaches, crowdsourcing approaches…
- Ethics and societal impact.
