Semantic Representation of Spoken Language
Short Title: SRSL7

Date: 12-Nov-2007 - 13-Nov-2007
Location: Salamanca, Spain
Contact: Manuel Alcantara
Contact Email: manuel.alcantaradfki.de
Meeting URL: http://www.dfki.de/~mpla/SRSL/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Semantics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in the
semantic representation of spoken corpora, especially spontaneous speech. The
current state-of-the-art supports solutions from very different backgrounds and
perspectives, but still remain important and complex issues to deal with, such
as the accurate segmentation of speech in semantic units.

Spoken language is a pending issue in computational linguistics and artificial
intelligence, both traditionally focused on written language, although semantic
processing of speech is necessary for the understanding of both natural and
human-machine interaction. The problems found when trying to linguistically
structure spontaneous speech are leading to works focused on its semantic
representation. In-depth research on the semantic representation of speech can
provide us with a suitable basis for further analysis of related linguistic
levels, like prosody or pragmatics.
