Identification and Annotation of Discourse Relations in Spoken Language


The workshop on 'Identification and Annotation of Discourse Relations in Spoken Language' brought together researchers from different areas working on discourse annotation in spoken language and in spoken-like text types. We had valuable contributions followed up by fruitful discussion. The presentations (as posters) and abstracts of the contributions in the workshop program are available here:

The output of the discussions are available here:

We also think that this special interest group needs more interaction with WG2+3, as the annotation categories missing in the existing schemes (but essential for spoken language) should be considered in the work on interoperable schemes. Moreover, interaction with WG4 is important.
