2013 MASC-SLL Call for Papers

Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning
University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Baltimore MD 21250

Friday, 11 October 2013 -- http://bit.ly/masc13

The third Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and
Learning is a one day event that will bring together faculty,
researchers and students from universities in the Mid-Atlantic
area doing research on speech, language or machine learning. The
colloquium is an opportunity to present preliminary or completed
work and to network with other students, faculty and researchers
working in related fields.

The first MASC-SLL was held in 2011 at Johns Hopkins University
and the second in 2012 at the University of Maryland, College
Park. This year the event will be held at the University of
Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in Baltimore, MD from 9:30 to
5:00 on Friday, 11 October 2013. There will be no registration
charge and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Students and postdocs are encouraged to submit abstracts
describing ongoing, planned, or completed research projects,
including previously published results and negative results.
Research in any field applying computational methods to any aspect
of human language, including speech and learning, from all areas
of computer science, linguistics, engineering, neuroscience,
information science, and related fields, is welcome. All accepted
submissions will be presented as posters and some will also be
invited for short oral presentations.

Student-led breakout sessions will also be held to discuss papers
or topics of interest and stimulate interaction and
discussion. Suggest breakout session topics via easychair.

There will be no registration fee. Students and postdocs are
encouraged to consult with their supervisors about potential
reimbursement of travel expenses.
