6th SIGdial Workshop on Discourse and Dialogue
We present a set of annotations of hierarchical topic segmentations and action item subdialogues collected over 65 meetings from the ICSI and ISL meeting corpora, designed to support automatic meeting understanding and analysis. We describe an architecture for representing, annotating, and analyzing multi-party discourse, including: an ontology of multimodal discourse, a programming interface for that ontology, and an audiovisual toolkit which facilitates browsing and annotating discourse, as well as visualizing and adjusting features for machine learning tasks.
