In this paper we present the dialogue- understanding components of an architec- ture for assisting multi-human conversa- tions in artifact-producing meetings: meet- ings in which tangible products such as project planning charts are created. Novel aspects of our system include multimodal ambiguity resolution, modular ontology- driven artifact manipulation, and a meeting browser for use during and after meetings. We describe the software architecture and demonstrate the system using an example multimodal dialogue.
