Speechact-based Case Management

Case-Management Systems support interactions among cooperating users by providing a commonly accessible data repository. In this project we investigate how the support for these interactions can be improved by using speech acts. Speech Act theory describes the pragmatic aspects of communicative acts. Thereby, utterances are classified as different speech acts (like "question", "promise", "order", etc.) according to the intention of the speaker. The speaker is well aware of this intention, but a case-management system is typically not.

In this project we investigate how this intention can be made explicit to a case- management system with minimal additional effort. The goal is to reuse the speech-act related information for inferences like work lists or reminders.

To determine realistic requirements for speech-act support we investigate typical workflows of knowledge workers from different domains. In addition, we analyse the types of support that are already available in current ACM (Adaptive Case Management) and groupware systems. The goal is to derive an architecture for a speech-act-based ACM system.
