We implemented a generic dialogue shell that can be configured for and applied to domain-specific dialogue applications. A toolbox for ontology-based dialogue engineering provides a technical solution for the two challenges of engineering ontological domain extensions and debugging functional modules. We support a rapid implementation cycle until the dialogue systems works robustly for a new domain, e.g., the dialogue-based retrieval of medical images.
