Proceedings of the Fifth International Workshop on the Language-Action Perspective on Communication Modelling, LAP 2000. September 2000, Aachen, Germany

Year 2000

Information technology has seen radical changes in the last two decades with systems to support cooperation and communication playing an ever-increasing role. In today's society, communication is present in many different facets, e.g. faceto- face dialogues, telephone conversations, email messages, information exchanges of agents. Communication is the key to smooth cooperation. Individuals working in groups coordinate their actions through communication. The modelling of these communication aspects has been studied for more than two decades. Since 1980 a new paradigm has evolved in the field of information systems which emphasises the importance of communication in an organisational context: The Language-Action Perspective (LAP). LAP was introduced by Winograd, Flores, and Ludlow who stated that human beings are fundamentally linguistic beings who act through language. It was argued that language is not only used for exchanging information as in reports, statements etc. but also to perform actions, e.g. promises, orders, declarations.
