TSD series evolved as a prime forum for interaction between researchers in
both spoken and written language processing from all over the world.
Proceedings of TSD form a book published by Springer-Verlag in their
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. TSD Proceedings
are regularly indexed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation
Index. Moreover, LNAI series are listed in all major citation databases

The history of the TSD conference dates back to 1998 when the event was held
for the first time, that time as an international workshop, in Brno, Czech
Republic. The essential idea behind the project was to establish a scientific
meeting platform that would act as a bridge between the East and the West.
