This special session aims to serve as a platform for cross-disciplinary discussions on ways, problems, challenges and perspectives of mutual integration of Spoken Dialogue Systems and Pervasive Computing technologies.

Spoken Dialogue Systems have been a hot topic of discussion in a research community for the last two decades. They are an inalienable part of Human-Computer Interaction, and allow the integration of Artificial Intelligence systems in our everyday lives smoothly and naturally, through an easy, human-like communication. Pervasive Computing technologies can contact the user at a close level as well as be insensibly integrated into the environment, providing spatially distributed information. Being a part of the smart environment, each smart device serves as a mini personal assistant and requires an ability to interact with the user to be able to be more adaptive, user-friendly and effective.

While both topics have recently been an interest of researchers, questions of integration between pervasive computing and spoken dialogue systems have been discussed within each community. The Interdisciplinary potential of both fields has not yet been investigated in detail. A more active cooperation between both communities may open the way for more powerful and user-friendly Pervasive Computing Systems. The proposed special session will help to explore possible challenges and suggestions to progress them. We aim to create the unique venue for discussion and collaboration between experts from these disciplines.
