The Dialog System Technology Challenge (DSTC) is an ongoing series of research competitions for dialog systems. To accelerate the development of new dialog technologies, the DSTCs have provided common testbeds for various research problems. The Ninth and Tenth Dialog System Technology Challenge (DSTC9&10) consist of the following nine main tracks.


DSTC9:

-Beyond Domain APIs: Task-oriented Conversational Modeling with Unstructured Knowledge Access


-Multi-domain Task-oriented Dialog Challenge II


-Interactive Evaluation of Dialog


-SIMMC: Situated Interactive Multi-Modal Conversational AI


DSTC10:

-MOD: Internet Meme Incorporated Open-domain Dialog


-Knowledge-grounded Task-oriented Dialogue Modeling on Spoken Conversations


-SIMMC 2.0: Situated Interactive Multimodal Conversational AI


-Reasoning for Audio Visual Scene-Aware Dialog


-Automatic Evaluation and Moderation of Open-domain Dialogue Systems



This special issue will host work on any of the DSTC9&10 tasks. Papers may describe entries in the official DSTC9&10 challenge, or any research utilizing their datasets irrespective of the participation in the official challenge. We also welcome papers that analyze the DSTC9&10 tasks or results themselves. Finally, we also invite papers on previous DSTC tasks as well as general technical papers on any dialog-related research problems.
