Mostdialoguesystemsarebuiltwithasin- gle task in mind. This makes the exten- sion of an existing system one of the ma- jor problems in the field as large parts of the system have to be modified. Some re- cent work has shown that ontologies have a role on the domain knowledge represen- tation as the knowledge collected in an on- tologycanbeusedinallthemodules. This work aims to follow the footsteps of the use of ontologies in dialogue systems and take it further as the current state of the art only uses taxonomical knowledge.
