      AIMS:

      SLSP is a yearly conference series aimed at promoting and displaying
      excellent research on the wide spectrum of statistical methods that are
      currently in use in computational language or speech processing. It aims at
      attracting contributions from both fields. Though there exist large,
      well-known conferences and workshops hosting contributions to any of these
      areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting where synergies between subdomains and
      people will hopefully happen. In SLSP 2014, significant room will be
      reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular
      focus will be put on methodology.

      VENUE:

      SLSP 2014 will take place in Grenoble, at the foot of the French Alps.

      SCOPE:

      The conference invites submissions discussing the employment of statistical
      methods (including machine learning) within language and speech processing.
      The list below is indicative and not exhaustive:

      phonology, phonetics, prosody, morphology
      syntax, semantics
      discourse, dialogue, pragmatics
      statistical models for natural language processing
      supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning methods
      applied to natural language, including speech
      statistical methods, including biologically-inspired methods
      similarity
      alignment
      language resources
      part-of-speech tagging
      parsing
      semantic role labelling
      natural language generation
      anaphora and coreference resolution
      speech recognition
      speaker identification/verification
      speech transcription
      speech synthesis
      machine translation
      translation technology
      text summarisation
      information retrieval
      text categorisation
      information extraction
      term extraction
