We describe the error handling architect- ture underlying the RavenClaw dialog management framework. The architecture provides a robust basis for current and fu- ture research in error detection and recov- ery. Several objectives were pursued in its development: task-independence, ease-of- use, adaptability and scalability. We de- scribe the key aspects of architectural de- sign which confer these properties, and discuss the deployment of this architect- ture in a number of spoken dialog systems spanning several domains and interaction types. Finally, we outline current research projects supported by this architecture.
