Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 07-Oct-2012

Meeting Description:

This workshop provides an opportunity for a discussion and exchange of ideas on multidisciplinary research in academia by bringing together technologies from different sub-areas of speech, language technologies, learning sciences and education. For example, computational technologies like concordancing, text alignment, morphological processing, syntactic parsing, speech recognition and speech synthesis help in illustrating linguistic structures, providing varied exercise material and identifying and correcting errors of foreign/second language learners. Similarly, speech tools have many applications in helping the differently challenged learners.
