This paper describes MIMUS, a multimodal and multilingual dialogue system for the in– home scenario, which allows users to con- trol some home devices by voice and/or clicks. Its design relies on Wizard of Oz ex- periments and is targeted at disabled users. MIMUS follows the Information State Up- date approach to dialogue management, and supports English, German and Spanish, with the possibility of changing language on–the– fly. MIMUS includes a gestures–enabled talking head which endows the system with a human–like personality.
