Wizard of Oz Experiments for a companion dialogue system: eliciting companionable conversation.

  Working within the EU funded COMPANIONS program, we report recent work with a Wizard of Oz (WoZ) dialogue collection system.
COMPANION systems require complex models of dialogue, and new models of evaluation. Wizard of Oz dialogues give us a mechanism
to explore both of these research issues. We describe a new corpus of companionable dialogues collected using our WoZ system
