SloNLP 2017

česká verze

SloNLP is a Slovakoczech workshop focused on Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics. Its main aim is to encourage cooperation among NLP researchers in Czechia and Slovakia; we therefore also invite Master and Doctoral students of computational linguistics to participate.

The topics of the workshop include: automatic speech recognition (ASR), automatic natural language analysis and generation (morphology, syntax, semantics...), dialogue systems, machine translation (MT), information retrieval (IR), practical applications of NLP technologies, and other topics of computational linguistics.

We also welcome work-in-progress papers with preliminary results, negative results papers, and future research suggestion papers.

The workshop is part of the ITAT conference, which takes place from 22th to 26th September 2016 in Hotel Martinské hole in Martinské hole near Martin (map).
