As a step toward the design of a robot that can take part to a conversation we propose a robotic system that, taking advantage of multiple perceptual capabilities, actively follows a conversation among several human subjects. The essential idea of our proposal is that the robot system can dynamically change the focus of its attention according to visual or audio stimuli to track the actual speaker throughout the conversation and infer her identity.
