The aim of this paper is to present a preliminary scientometric study of the area of conversational systems in Spain. In order to do so, we have used the Web of Science database to retrieve the papers in the area using a comprehensive list of keywords and considering those papers with at least one author with Spanish affiliation. Our results present an overview of the main topics, authors and institutions involved in conversational system research and show the good status of Spanish research in this discipline.
