The centering frmnework explains local coherence by re- lating local focus mid the lbrm of referring expressions. It has proven useful in monolog, but its utility lot multi- party discourse has not been shown, and a variety of is- sues must be tackled to adapt the model lot dialog. This paper reports our application of three naive models of centering theory lot dialog. These results will be used as baselines lot evaluating future models. 1
