This paper describes a multi-modal corpus of hand-annotated meeting dialogues that was designed for studying addressing behavior in face-to-face conversations. The corpus contains annotated dialogue acts, addressees, adjacency pairs and gaze direction. First, we describe the corpus design where we present the annotation schema, annotation tools and annotation process itself. Then, we analyze the reproducibility and stability of the annotation schema.
