Call for Papers:  ***PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED: AUGUST 15, 2008****
Second IEEE Spoken Language Technology Workshop
Goa, India
December 15-18, 2008

The Second IEEE Spoken Language Technology (SLT) workshop will be held 
from December 15 to December 18, 2008 in Goa, India. The goal of this 
workshop is to bring both the speech processing and natural language 
processing communities together to share and present recent advances in 
various areas of spoken language technology, with the expectation that 
such a confluence of the researchers from both communities will foster 
new ideas, collaborations and new research directions in this area. The 
SLT 2008 workshop is endorsed by both ISCA and ACL organizations and 
eligible participants can apply for ISCA grants 
(http://www.isca-speech.org/grants.html).

Spoken language technology is a vibrant research area, with the 
potential for significant impact on government and industrial 
applications especially with the diversity and challenges offered by the 
multilingual business climates of today's world.

The workshop solicits papers on all aspects of spoken language technology:

o Spoken language understanding
o Spoken document summarization
o Machine translation for speech
o Spoken dialog systems
o Spoken language generation
o Spoken document retrieval
o Human computer Interactions (HCI)
o Speech data mining
o Information extraction from speech
o Question answering from speech
o Multimodal processing
o Spoken language based assistive technologies
o Spoken language systems and applications
o Spoken language databases and standards

In addition, this year's workshop will feature three special sessions:

1) Challenges in Asian spoken language processing with special emphasis 
on Indian languages
2) Mining human-human conversations: A resource for building efficient 
human-machine dialogs
3) Spoken Language on the go: Challenges and Opportunities for spoken 
language processing on mobile devices
