Call for Papers
The Second IEEE Spoken Language Technology (SLT) workshop will be held from December 15 to December 18, 2008 in Goa, India. The goal of this workshop is to bring both the speech processing and natural language processing communities together to share and present recent advances in various areas of spoken language technology, with the expectation that such a confluence of the researchers from both communities will foster new ideas, collaborations and new research directions in this area. The SLT 2008 workshop is endorsed by both ISCA and ACL organizations and eligible participants can apply for ISCA grants (http://www.isca-speech.org/grants.html).
Spoken language technology is a vibrant research area, with the potential for significant impact on government and industrial applications especially with the diversity and challenges offered by the multilingual business climates of today's world.
The workshop solicits papers on all aspects of spoken language technology:
In addition, this year's workshop will feature three special sessions:
- Challenges in Asian spoken language processing with special emphasis on Indian languages
