This paper presents an overview of the spoken and multimodal dialog Portuguese corpora collected in the context of the FASiL (Flexible and Adaptive Spoken Language and Multi-Modal Interfaces) project. The project developed a Virtual Personal Assistant application in the Personal Information Management domain, exploiting the state-of-the-art of speech and multi-modal technology. The FASiL corpora were collected to obtain acoustic and language modelling data for the spoken language components, to study adaptative dialogue management techniques and to support multi-modal interface research tasks. As spoken and multi-modal resources availability is key to the research, development and acceptability of new multi-modal services and applications the corpora will be available to interested parties through ELRA.
