Dialogue topic tracking aims at analyzing and maintaining topic transitions in on-going dialogues. This paper proposes to utilize Wikification-based features for providing mention-level correspondences to Wikipedia concepts for dialogue topic tracking. The experimental results show that our proposed features can significantly improve the performances of the task in mixed-initiative human-human dialogues.
