Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning

May 12th, 2018 University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Baltimore, MD 21250 USA

http://www.mascsll.org/2018

The seventh annual Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning will be hosted at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on May 12th, 2018. The Student Colloquium is intended to bring together students taking computational approaches to speech, language, and learning, so that they can introduce their research to the local student community, give and receive feedback, and engage each other in collaborative discussion.

Students are encouraged to submit abstracts describing ongoing, planned, or completed research projects, including previously published results and negative results. Student 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. Submissions and presentations must be made by students or postdocs. Accepted submissions will be presented as either posters or talks.

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

Abstract Submission Details
