In this paper we introduce our attempts to incorporate the participant role information in multiparty meetings for document modeling using the hierarchical Dirichlet process. The perplexity and automatic speech recognition results demonstrate that the participant role information is a promising prior knowledge source to be combined with language models for automatic speech recognition and interaction modeling for multiparty meetings.
