Welcome to SIGdial 2016!

The 17th Annual SIGdial Meeting on Discourse and Dialogue (SIGDIAL 2016) will be held on September 13-15 in Los Angeles, USA.

The SIGdial venue provides a regular forum for the presentation of cutting edge research in discourse and dialogue to both academic and industry researchers. Continuing with a series of successful sixteen previous meetings, this conference spans the research interest area of discourse and dialogue. The conference is sponsored by the SIGdial organization, which serves as the Special Interest Group in discourse and dialogue for both ACL and ISCA.

We look forward to a successful conference!
