Various knowledge sources are used for spo- ken dialog systems such as task model, do- main model, and agenda. An agenda graph is one of the knowledge sources for a dialog management to reflect a discourse structure. This paper proposes a clustering and linking method to automatically construct an agenda graph from human-human dialogs. Prelimi- nary evaluation shows our approach would be helpful to reduce human efforts in designing prior knowledge.
