In-vehicle dialogue systems often contain more than one application, e.g. a navi- gation and a telephone application. This means that the user might, for example, in- terrupt the interaction with the telephone application to ask for directions from the navigation application, and then resume the dialogue with the telephone applica- tion. In this paper we present an anal- ysis of interruption and resumption be- haviour in human-human in-vehicle dia- logues and also propose some implications for resumption strategies in an in-vehicle dialogue system.
