IWSDS 2019

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Tenth International Workshop on Spoken Dialogue Systems Technology (IWSDS) 2019. This year’s conference theme will be

Increasing naturalness and flexibility in spoken dialogue interaction.

Following the success of a series of ninth previous events, IWSDS 2019 will be held in Sicily on April 24-26, 2019. It will be the first international meeting on speech technology ever held in Siracusa (Sicily, Italy)! Participants will be able to keep track of the state of the art in spoken dialogue systems while enjoying a 2,700-year-old city that has played a chief role in ancient time. Siracusa is rich in Greek history, culture, amphitheatres, architecture, and it is the birthplace of Archimedes.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we welcome you to Sicily, and hope that you enjoy the workshop as well as the glorious mix of cultures and traditions on display.
