Most question answering (QA) and infor- mation retrieval (IR) systems are insensi- tive to different users’ needs and prefer- ences, and also to the existence of multi- ple, complex or controversial answers. We introduce adaptivity in QA and IR by cre- ating a hybrid system based on a dialogue interface and a user model. Keywords: question answering, information retrieval, user modelling, dialogue interfaces.
