We are aiming to develop a personal assistant system which handles its user’s files stored in his/her computers and his/her interesting information that can be accessed on the Web. The system categorizes the files and Web pages gathered and extracts information specified by him/her and stores it into a structured database for use as the knowledge of its dialogue module. This paper presents a prototype of the system that handles information about conferences of interest to the user. The system extracts conference names, submission deadlines, dates, URIs and locations from e-mail messages the user has received, and web pages gathered by both crawling and meta-search. Extracted information is stored into a database so that the user can interactively search conference information via a user interface with natural language queries.
