The program committee welcomes the submission of long papers, short papers, and demo descriptions. All accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings.
- Long papers will be presented in full plenary presentations. They must be no longer than 8 pages, including title, examples, references, etc. In addition to this, two additional pages are allowed as an appendix which may include extended example discourses or dialogues, algorithms, graphical representations, etc.
- Short papers will be featured in short plenary presentations, followed by posters. They should be 4 pages or less (including title, examples, references, etc.).
- This year demonstrations will be presented in special sessions, separate from short paper presentations and poster sessions. Demo descriptions will appear in a dedicated section of the proceedings and should be 3 pages or less (including title, examples, references, etc.).To encourage late breaking demos, demo submissions have a much later deadline compared to long and short papers.
Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information (see submission format). SIGDIAL 2011 cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere, except for demonstrations. Any questions regarding submissions can be sent to the technical program co-chairs at program-chairs[at]sigdial.org.
Authors are encouraged to make illustrative
materials available, on the web or otherwise. Examples might include
excerpts of recorded conversations, recordings of human-computer
dialogues, interfaces to working systems, and so on.

guidelines, which are contained in the style files, and they
must be electronic in PDF. As in most previous years, submissions
