Best Paper nomination at SIGDial

We got a best paper nomination for our “Timing Bottleneck” paper at SIGDial! Co-author Ada Lopez presented the work, which was our team-based extension of the Lopez, Liesenfeld & Dingemanse 2022 Konvens paper that came out of her Lab Rotation work in our project. Congratulations to the team from Apple who ultimately won the award with their paper on dialogue state trackers.
