This paper describes an implementation of some key aspects of a theory of dialogue processing whose main concerns are to provide models of GROUND- ING and of the role of DISCOURSE OBLIGATIONS in an agent's deliberation processes. Our system uses the TrindiKit dialogue move engine toolkit, which assumes a model of dialogue in which a participan. t's knowledge is characterised in terms of INFORMA- TION STATES which are subject to various kinds of updating mechanisms.
