We describe ConQuest, an open-source, reusable spoken dialog system that pro- vides technical program information dur- ing conferences. The system uses a transparent, modular and open infrastruc- ture, and aims to enable applied research in spoken language interfaces. The con- ference domain is a good platform for ap- plied research since it permits periodical redeployments and evaluations with a real user-base. In this paper, we describe the system’s functionality, overall architec- ture, and we discuss two initial deploy- ments.
