This International Workshop on Spoken Languages Technologies for Under-resourced languages (SLTU) will be held at Hanoi University of Technology, Hanoi, Vietnam, May 5 -May 7, 2008.
The SLTU meeting is a technical conference focused on spoken language processing for under-resourced languages. This first workshop will focus on Asian languages, and the idea is to mainly (but not exclusively) target languages of the area (Vietnamese, Khmer, Lao, Chinese dialects, Thai, etc.). However, all contributions on other under-resourced languages of the world are warmly welcomed.
The workshop aims at gathering researchers working on:
Tanja Schultz for Interactive Systems Labs (CMU&UKA) will give an invited talk on multilingual speech recognition
Yoshinori Sagisaka, Waseda University, Japan will present an invited talk on speech synthesis with the topic "Corpus-based speech synthesis from reading speech to communicative speech"
