As spoken dialogue systems move be yond task oriented dialogues and become distributed in the pervasive computing environments, their growing complexity calls for more modular structures. When different aspects of a single system can be accessed with different interfaces, knowledge representation and separation of low level interaction modeling from high level reasoning on domain level be comes important. In this paper, a model utilizing a dialogue plan to communicate information from domain level planner to dialogue management and from there to a separate mobile interface is presented. The model enables each part of the sys tem handle the same information from their own perspectives without contain ing overlapping logic.
