This paper is about the automated production of dialogue models. The goal is to propose and validate a methodology that allows the production of finalized dialogue models (i.e. dialogue models specific for given applications) in a few hours. The solution we propose for such a methodology, called the Rapid Dialogue Prototyping Methodology (RDPM), is decomposed into five consecutive main steps, namely: (1) producing the task model; (2) deriving the initial dialogue model; (3) using a Wizard-of-Oz experiment to instantiate the initial dialogue model; (4) using an internal field test to refine the dialogue model; and (5) using an external field test to evaluate the final dialogue model. All five steps will be described in more detail in the document.
