Workshop Goals

The goal of the workshop is to understand the limitations of the
current W3C language model in order to develop a more comprehensive
model. We plan to collect and analyze use cases and prioritize
requirements that ultimately will be used to identify improvements to
the W3C language model. Just as W3C developed SSML 1.1 to broaden the
languages for which SSML is useful, this effort will result in
improved support for language capabilities that are unsupported today.

The main outcome of the workshop will be the publication of a document
that will serve as a guide for improving the W3C language model.

Scope of the Workshop

Submissions must describe (1) requirements and use cases for improving
W3C standards for conversational interaction and (2) how the use cases
justify one or more of these topics:

* Formal notations for representing grammar in: Syntax, Morphology,
  Phonology, Prosodics

* Engine standards for improvement in processing: Syntax, Morphology,
  Phonology, Lexicography

* Lexicography standards for: parts-of-speech, grammatical features
  and polysemy

* Formal semantic representation of human language including: verbal
  tense, aspect, valency, plurality, pronouns, adverbs, etc.

* Efficient data structures for binary representation and passing of:
  parse trees, alternate lexical/morphologic analysis, alternate
  phonologic analysis

* Other suggested areas or improvements for standards based
  conversational systems development
