Eighth International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS-8 2009)
Tilburg University, Netherlands, January 7-9, 2009


In this paper, we propose a formal and conceptual model for procedural texts, within Action theory. We propose some elements to model the complexity and expliciteness of instructions, showing, how, for a given execution of the procedure, the success of the goal can be measured. Next, we show how a procedure can be enriched via textual integration in order to improve the success rate of the goal.
