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

Call Deadline: 22-Mar-2016

Meeting Description:

TSD 2016 will address the following topics within the field of natural language processing:

- Corpora, texts and transcription
- Speech analysis, recognition and synthesis
- Their intertwining within NL dialogue systems

Topics of the TSD 2016 Conference will include (but are not limited to):

- Corpora and Language Resources (monolingual, multilingual, text and spoken corpora, large web corpora, disambiguation, specialized lexicons, dictionaries)
- Speech Recognition (multilingual, continuous, emotional speech, handicapped speaker, out-of-vocabulary words, alternative way of feature extraction, new models for acoustic and language modelling)
- Tagging, Classification and Parsing of Text and Speech (morphological and syntactic analysis, synthesis and disambiguation, multilingual processing, sentiment analysis, credibility analysis, automatic text labeling, summarization, authorship attribution)
- Speech and Spoken Language Generation (multilingual, high fidelity speech synthesis, computer singing)
- Semantic Processing of Text and Speech (information extraction, information retrieval, data mining, semantic web, knowledge representation, inference, ontologies, sense disambiguation, plagiarism detection)
- Integrating Applications of Text and Speech Processing (natural language understanding, question-answering strategies, assistive technologies)
- Machine Translation (statistical, rule-based, example-based, hybrid, text and speech translation)
- Automatic Dialogue Systems (self-learning, multilingual, question-answering systems, dialogue strategies, prosody in dialogues)
- Multimodal Techniques and Modelling (video processing, facial animation, visual speech synthesis, user modelling, emotions and personality modelling)

2nd Call for Papers:

Submission Deadlines:

- March 15 2016: Submission of abstracts
- March 22 2016: Submission of full papers

Submission of abstract serves for better organization of the review process only - for the actual review a full paper submission is necessary.

TSD Series:

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 such as DBLP, SCOPUS, EI, INSPEC or COMPENDEX.

The TSD 2016 conference will be accompanied by a one-day satellite workshop.

Community-based Building of Language Resources, CBBLR

The main topic of the workshop is directed at building new language resources, especially for languages with no or too little existing
language resources. The workshop is organized in cooperation with the HaBiT CZ-NO project Consortium, submissions from other resource development projects are more than welcomed. The workshop submissions will undergo two separate review processes - the best papers which will succeed in both review processes (by the TSD 2016 Conference PC and CBBLR Workshop 2016 PC) will be published in the TSD 2016 Springer Proceedings, all other accepted CBBLR workshop papers will be published in a separate proceedings with ISBN. The CBBLR workshop will take place on September 12 2016 in the conference venue.

The TSD 2016 conference will be directly followed by a meeting of the working groups and management committee of the

ISCH COST Action IS 1305
