THIRD CALL FOR PAPERS EMNLP 2017 Workshop on Speech-Centric Natural Language Processing (SCNLP)

Hosted at Empirical Methods for Natural Language Processing (EMNLP) conference September 7, 2017, Copenhagen Denmark

SCNLP's goal is to unite the ASR and NLP communities to discuss new frameworks for exploiting the rich information present in the speech signal to improve the capabilities of natural language processing applications such as conversational agents, question-answering systems, machine translation, and search. SCNLP encourages novel contributions that revisit the conventional NLP problems with a focus on incorporating the richness of spoken language, as well as contributions that promote cross-fertilization between statistical methods for ASR and NLP.

We envision SCNLP as a platform to promote collaboration between the ASR and NLP communities and to seek ways to lower the barrier of entry for researchers interested in working in the exciting intersection between Speech and Natural Language Processing.

Important Dates February 2017: First call for workshop papers June 2 2017: Workshop papers due June 30 2017: Notification of acceptance July 14 2017: Camera-ready due September 7 2017: Workshop date

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Speech translation Spoken dialogue systems Spoken query reformulation for Question/Answering systems Word-sense disambiguation for speech transcripts Information extraction on speech transcripts (combining textual corpora with speech corpora) Domain adaptation (Adapting textual NLP training data to speech-centric tasks) ASR evaluation for NLP ASR error modeling Speech segmentation for NLP Punctuation insertion Disfluency detection and correction NLP with ASR lattices/confusion networks Discourse and Speech Processing Joint ASR/NLP modeling

We are excited to have a strong program committee consisting of research leaders spanning the Speech and NLP communities.
