8th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STATISTICAL LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PROCESSING
SLSP 2020

Cardiff, United Kingdom
October 14-16, 2020

Co-organized by:

School of Computer Science and Informatics
Cardiff University

Data Innovation Research Institute
Cardiff University

Institute for Research Development, Training and Advice (IRDTA), Brussels/London

https://irdta.eu/slsp2020/




Aims
-----------
SLSP is a yearly conference series aimed at promoting and displaying
excellent 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 conferences and workshops hosting
contributions to any of these areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting
where synergies between the two domains will hopefully happen. In SLSP
2020, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the
beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on
methodology.

Previous events took place in Tarragona, Grenoble, Budapest, Pilsen,
Le Mans, Mons, and Ljubljana.


Venue
-------------
SLSP 2020 will take place in Cardiff, the capital of Wales and its
political, commercial and cultural centre. The venue will be:

Council Chamber
Glamorgan Building
King Edward VII Ave
Cathays Park
Cardiff
CF10 3WT

Scope
-------------
The conference invites submissions discussing the employment of
statistical models (including machine learning) within language and
speech processing. Topics of either theoretical or applied interest
include, but are not limited to:

Anaphora and coreference resolution
Audio event detection
Authorship identification, plagiarism, and spam filtering
Biases, explainability and interpretability in language and speech processing
Corpora and resources for speech and language
Data mining, term extraction, and semantic web
Dialogue systems and spoken language understanding
Information retrieval and information extraction
Knowledge representation and ontologies
Lexicons and dictionaries
Machine translation and computer-aided translation
Multimodal technologies
Natural language understanding and generation
Neural representation of speech and language
Opinion mining and sentiment analysis
Part-of-speech tagging, parsing, and semantic role labelling
Question-answering systems for speech and text
Speaker identification and verification
Speech recognition and synthesis
Spelling correction
Text categorization and summarization
Text normalization and inverted text normalization
Text-to-speech
User modeling
Wake word detection
