SLSP 2017

Le Mans, France

October 23-25, 2017


Organized by:


Computer Science Lab (LIUM)

University of Le Mans


Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)

Rovira i Virgili University







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 2017, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology.



SLSP 2017 will take place in Le Mans, in the region Pays de la Loire, a city with well-preserved Gallo-Roman remnants. The venue will be:


Claude Chappe Informatics Institute

University of Le Mans

Avenue Laënnec

72085 Le Mans Cedex 9



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 2017 will consist of:
