|Program Description:||Empirical Speech and Language Processing
The PhD program 'Empirical Speech and language Processing' (ESP) is at the intersection of the disciplines Computer Linguistics, Computational Statistics, Information Science and Phonetics and Speech Processing. A characteristic of these disciplines is the increasingly empirical-based approach to research and the goal of the ESP is to make use of the synergies between them and to extend them.
ESP is conceived as a research-based and systematically structured teaching program. PhD students will have many opportunities to present and discuss their research in colloquia, thematic workshops and symposia with invited researchers. Contributions will be made to the program by internationally acclaimed scientists and the program will draw upon extensive speech and language corpora, well established infrastructural support and a wide range of research projects in both basic and applied research.
The PhD-programm ESP offers
- an interdisciplinary, research-oriented, well-structured doctoral study program,
- intensive, individual supervision by highly qualified professors,
- an international program of guest speakers
