CALL FOR PAPERS: 1st INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STATISTICAL LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PROCESSING,July 29-31, 2013, Tarragona, SPAIN - EXTENDED DEADLINE

http://grammars.grlmc.com/SLSP2013/

SLSP 2013

*********************************************************************

AIMS:

SLSP is the first event in a series to host and promote research on the wide spectrum of 
statistical methods that are currently in use in computational language or speech processing. 
It aims at attracting contributions from both fields. Though there exist large, well-known 
conferences including papers in any of these fields, SLSP is a more focused meeting where 
synergies between areas and people will hopefully happen. SLSP will reserve significant space 
for young scholars at the beginning of their careers.


VENUE:

SLSP 2013 will take place in Tarragona, 100 km. to the south of Barcelona.

SCOPE:

The conference invites submissions discussing the employment of statistical methods (including 
machine learning) within language and speech processing. The list below is indicative and not 
exhaustive:

- phonology, morphology
- syntax, semantics
- discourse, dialogue, pragmatics
- statistical models for natural language processing
- supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning methods applied to natural language, including speech
- statistical methods, including biologically-inspired methods
- similarity
- alignment
- language resources
- part-of-speech tagging
- parsing
- semantic role labelling
- natural language generation
- anaphora and coreference resolution
- speech recognition 
- speaker identification/verification
- speech transcription
- text-to-speech synthesis
- machine translation
- translation technology
- text summarisation
- information retrieval
- text categorisation
- information extraction
- term extraction
- spelling correction
- text and web mining
- opinion mining and sentiment analysis
- spoken dialogue systems
- author identification, plagiarism and spam filtering
