Introduction

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Eleventh International Workshop on Spoken Dialog System Technology (IWSDS 2020). This year’s conference theme will be: "Conversational Dialogue Systems for the Next Decade", being our target to discuss, propose and set the milestones of the dialogue systems we will be designing and running for the following 10 years.

Following the success of a series of ten previous events, IWSDS 2020 will be held in Madrid on September 21-23, 2020. Taking advantage of its historical and geographical situation, its rich entertainment and culture offering, and the warmness of its people that makes everyone feel at home, participants will be able not only to keep track of the state of the art in spoken dialogue systems but also enjoying the attractiveness of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we welcome you to Madrid, and hope that you enjoy the workshop as well as the charms of this great city and country that welcomes you.
