W3C Workshop on Conversational Applications

The W3C Voice Browser Working Group and the Multimodal Interaction
Working Group will collaboratively hold the Workshop on Conversational
Applications to be held on June 18-19 2010 in Somerset, NJ, USA hosted
by Openstream.

There is currently an increasing need for new capabilities of the
human language model to support sophisticated conversational
applications.  The goal of the Workshop is to understand the
limitations of the current W3C language model (e.g. SRGS [1], SISR [2]
and PLS [3]) in order to develop a more comprehensive one.  We plan to
collect and analyze use cases and prioritize requirements that
ultimately will improve support for language capabilities that are
unsupported today.

To participate in the workshop, you must submit a short (1-3 page)
position paper on one of the topics listed in the call for
participation (http://www.w3.org/2010/02/convapps/cfp) to
<team-convapps-ws-submit@w3.org> before 2 April 2010.
The workshop is open to both W3C and non-W3C members.

Note: The above call for participation is still a draft, but few
changes are expected before the official announcement, anticipated
early March.  So please start to consider topics for position papers
and submit your papers.  If you have questions, pleae contact me at
