Call For Papers
After the success of ICNLSP 2015 (www.icnlsp.org/icnlsp2015), the first edition, which had been organized in 2015 in Algiers by the Computational Linguistics Department of the Centre de Recherche Scientifique et Technique pour le Développement de la Langue Arabe, the 2nd International Conference on Natural Language and Speech Processing ICNLSP 2018 will be held in Algiers on April 25th and 26th 2018,
As ICNLSP 2015, ICNLSP 2018 is funded by Algerian ministry of higher education and scientific research.
ICNLSP 2018 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE (https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/conferencedetails/index.html?Conf_ID=43519).
ICNLSP 2018 aims to cover all aspects of natural language and speech processing. It aims to attract contributions in basic theories and applications as well. Regular and posters sessions will be organized, in addition to keynotes presented by senior international researchers.
ICNLSP 2018 invites papers discussing the science and technology related to speech and natural language, regardless of the language studied, however works on Arabic and its dialects are encouraged.
The following list includes the topics of ICNLSP 2018 but not limited to:
Signal processing, acoustic modeling
Architecture of speech recognition system
Deep learning for speech recognition
Analysis of speech
Paralinguistics in Speech and Language
Pathological speech and language
Speaker and language identification
Phonetics, phonology and prosody
Cognition and natural language processing
Sentiment analysis and opinion mining
Computational Social Web
Arabic dialects processing
Under-resourced languages: tools and corpora
New language models
