Call For Papers

The workshop on spoken language technologies for under- resourced languages is the sixth in a series of even-year SLTU workshops. Five previous workshops were successfully organized: SLTU'16 Yogyakarta (Indonesia), SLTU'14 in St. Petersburg (Russia), SLTU'12 in Cape Town (South Africa), SLTU'10 in Penang(Malaysia) and SLTU,08 in Hanoi (Vietnam).
There are more than 6000 languages in the world and only few are well represented digitally. India alone, with a country of 780 spoken languages and 86 different scripts that reflect its incredible diversity, has lost around 250 languages in the last 50 years and many more are at the verge of getting extinct. A major focus of this workshop is on Indo-European and Sino-Tibetan languages, but study on other under resourced languages are also encouraged. The workshop is being planned as a satellite workshop to INTERSPEECH 2018.

Areas related to digital revolution for under resourced and endangered languages:
Language resource development, acquisition and representation
Linguistic theories, Corpus Development and Resources
Linguistic and cognitive studies
Unsupervised discovery of linguistic units
Code switched lexical modeling
Multi-lingual and cross-lingual spoken language processing
Speech-to-text, text-to-speech and speech-to-speech processing
Machine translation and dialogue systems
Application of spoken language technologies for under-resourced languages.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers up to 4 pages for technical content (including figures, tables, etc) plus one additional page containing only references.
