Abstract: Question-Answering systems that resort to the Semantic Web as a knowledge base can go well beyond the usual matching words in documents and, preferably, find a precise answer, without requiring user help to interpret the documents returned. In this paper, we introduce a Dialogue Manager that by analysing the question and the type of expected answer, provides accurate answers to questions posed in Natural Language. The Dialogue Manager not only represents the semantics of the questions, but also the structure of the discourse including the user intentions and the questions context, adding the ability to deal with multiple answers and providing justified answers. Our system performance is evaluated by comparing with similar question answering systems. Although the test suite has slight dimensions, the results obtained are very promising.
