Meeting Acts: A Labeling System for Group Interaction in Meetings

Rebecca Bates, Patrick Menning, Elizabeth Willingham, Chad Kuyper

Minnesota State University, USA

We describe a new system for labeling speech corpora with highlevel group interaction tags, called "meeting acts." The system was motivated by a need to assess work seeking to automatically detect meeting style using dialog act information. We present information about the relationships seen between dialog act sequences and meeting style to motivate the labeling process. We provide a summary of the annotation system and labeling procedure, as well as preliminary inter-annotator reliability statistics on the ICSI Meeting Recorder Corpus.
