SLSP 2019: 2nd call for papers*To be removed from our mailing list, please respond to this message with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line*




SLSP 2019

Ljubljana, Slovenia

October 14-16, 2019


Co-organized by:


Jožef Stefan Institute


Institute for Research Development, Training and Advice (IRDTA), Brussels/London







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 conferences and workshops hosting contributions to any of these areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting where synergies between the two domains will hopefully happen. In SLSP 2019, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology.



SLSP 2019 will take place in Ljubljana, a charming city full of art and one of the smallest capital cities in Europe. The venue will be:


Jožef Stefan Institute

Jamova cesta 39

1000 Ljubljana




The conference invites submissions discussing the employment of statistical models (including machine learning) within language and speech processing. Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:


anaphora and coreference resolution

authorship identification, plagiarism and spam filtering

computer-aided translation

corpora and language resources

data mining and semantic web

information extraction

information retrieval

knowledge representation and ontologies

lexicons and dictionaries

machine translation

multimodal technologies

natural language understanding

neural representation of speech and language

opinion mining and sentiment analysis


part-of-speech tagging

question-answering systems

semantic role labelling

speaker identification and verification

speech and language generation

speech recognition

speech synthesis

speech transcription

spelling correction

spoken dialogue systems

term extraction

text categorisation

text summarisation

user modeling



SLSP 2019 will consist of:


invited talks

peer-reviewed contributions
