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.

We invite broad participation. Example 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 applications


The position papers will be reviewed by a member of the organizing committee and at least one member of the advisory committee.
  • We will check if the applicant research interests are suitable for them to take part in YRRSDS.
  • We will select the topics of interest pointed out by the applicants and prepare the program according to that.
  • We will provide feedback on the position paper and might contribute with ideas to the applicant research.
