Workshop on formal approaches to the dynamics of linguistic interaction to be held at ESSLLI 2017.

Natural language use involves using information from different sources, as and when it is available, including information in different modalities and from different agents.  This dynamic nature of linguistic interaction poses challenges for formal approaches to language, which are only recently beginning to be addressed. Formal approaches to capture the interactivity at all levels of language must model both the different types of information to be individuated and their interactions, using dynamic tools.  This workshop aims to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration by bringing together researchers who are beginning to tackle these issues from different formal perspectives.
