The problem of planning dialog moves can be viewed as an instance of the more general AI problem of planning with incomplete information and sensing. Sensing actions complicate the planning process since such actions engender potentially infinite state spaces. We adapt the Linear Dynamic Event Calculus (LDEC) to the representation of dialog acts using insights from the PKS planner, and show how this formalism can be applied to the problem of planning mixed-initiative collaborative discourse.
