We describe the annotation of a multimodal corpus that includes pointing gestures and haptic actions (force exchanges). Haptic actions are rarely analyzed as fullfledged components of dialogue, but our data shows haptic actions are used to advance the state of the interaction. We report our experiments on recognizing Dialogue Acts in both offline and online modes. Our results show that multimodal features and the dialogue game aid in DA classification.
