Abstract : Designing computers with the ability to talk and understand a natural language (NL) conversation is a major field of research. We have developed the HALPIN 1 system to implement our multimodal conversational model for information retrieval in a digital library via the World Wide Web. This dialogue-oriented interface allows access to INRIA's 2 database, on the Internet, in a natural language mode. The inputs from the user, could be either oral sentences or mouse/keyboard actions. The results of the first experiments show that the HALPIN system provides interesting dialogues, in particular with beginners. It gives oral responses via standard browsers, for a more natural human-machine interaction according to the user's goals and skills. This leads to successful information retrieval, while searches with the original user interface (traditional web form) failed.
