*The 14th annual Young Researchers’ Roundtable on Spoken Dialogue Systems
(YRRSDS) will be held at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia (collocated with ACL
and SIGdial) on July 10-11, 2018.YRRSDS (
<>) is an annual workshop for graduate students,
postdoctoral students, and junior researchers working on spoken dialogue
systems in both academia and industry. The workshop serves as an
interdisciplinary forum for creative thinking about current issues in
spoken dialogue systems research and helps to create an international
network of young researchers working in the field. We invite researchers at
an early stage of their career (no age limit) to submit a 2-page position
paper. This should include their past, present and future work, a short
bio, and topic suggestions for discussions. Poster presentation by all
participants is expected. However, posters need only present current work
and not necessarily be from a published paper. Submission topics include,
but are not limited to:•  Models of dialogue: statistical, symbolic, and
hybrid approaches•  Evaluation methodology for dialogue systems•
 Semantics, pragmatics, and context in dialogue systems•  Incremental
spoken dialogue systems•  Situated interaction with virtual and robotic
agents•  Psycholinguistic influences on dialogue system design•
 Establishing social relationships and engagement with the user•  Data
collection and dataset sharing for statistical models•  Industry
development cycles, requirements, and applicationsImportant DatesSubmission
