Meeting Description: 1st International Conference on Statistical Language and Speech Processing (SLSP 2013)
Tarragona, Spain
July 29-31, 2013

Organised by:

Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)
Rovira i Virgili University

Research Institute for Information and Language Processing (RIILP)
University of Wolverhampton


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.


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


The period for registration is open from November 30, 2012 to July 29, 2013. The registration form can be found at:
