SmartKom: Foundations of Multimodal Dialogue Systems  
In this contribution, we will report on the experience gained in building large-scale research prototypes of fully integrated multimodal dialogue systems in the context of the SmartKom project. The development of such systems requires a flexible software architecture and adequate software support to cope with the challenge of system integration. A practical result of our experimental work is an advanced integration platform that enables flexible re-use and extension of existing software modules
