TOURSG: A RESEARCH DIALOGUE CORPUS IN THE TOURISTIC DOMAIN
TourSG consists of dialogue sessions on touristic information for Singapore. It was collected from Skype calls between actual tour guides and tourists. Two collections are available: one in English (EN-TourSG) and one in Chinese (ZH-TourSG). EN-TourSG comprises 35 dialogue sessions and ZH-TourSG comprises 36 dialogue sessions, with a total length of 21 hours of conversations per language.
All dialogue sessions have been manually transcribed and annotated with speech act and semantic labels at the turn level. Annotations at the sub-dialogue segment level are also available (each full dialogue session is divided into sub-dialogues considering their topical coherence; each sub-dialogue is assigned to a major topic category and annotated with an additional frame structure with slot value pairs to represent the subject discussed within the sub-dialogue).
EN-TourSG and ZH-TourSG have been used as evaluation data for the Fourth and Fifth Dialogue State Tracking Challenges (DSTC4  and DSTC5  ).
Basic statistics of the datasets:

| English || 35|| 31,034 || 273,580 words || 21 hours|
