Sixth European Conference on Speech Communication and Technology
In this paper we present and justify the design and implementation choices we have made in order to build our dialogue system MultiDial2. We propose an event-based representation that enables us to structure the dialogue data upon several levels but within a single representation space. We show how this provides us with the necessary flexibility for a proper management of the dialogue. We describe the implementation of our model which uses the theory of Mental Representations, a formalism developed for referential resolution purposes.
