Abstract : The aim of this paper is to use insights from the theory of accommodation to study in a uniform way different kinds of acts involved in situated dialogue. When interlocutors are engaged in situated dialogue, their informational states evolve through dialogue acts, physical acts and sensing acts. We model this evolution in a non-traditional conversational system using tools from mature branches of artificial intelligence. In particular, we use a planner that is able to find plans in the presence of incomplete knowledge and sensing: PKS (Petrick and Bacchus 2002). In the resulting model, we study the interactions among dialogue acts, physical acts and sensing acts, and their relationship with accommodation.
