Generalising argument dialogue with the Dialogue Game Execution Platform

In this paper, we present the Dialogue Game Execution Platform (DGEP), developed as part of the BESiDE Purposeful Talk package. DGEP is able to process and execute any dialogue game specified in a general description language and build arguments and dialogue histories that can be used by a wide variety of existing dialogue tools. DGEP allows us to generalise techniques for generation and investigation of dialogues and, through a set of web services, connect a wide variety of multi-agent systems and human-computer interfaces for dialogue.
