The third Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning will be held at UMBC on Fri. 11 Oct 3013, bringing together students, postdocs, faculty and researchers from universities in the Mid-Atlantic area doing research on speech, language or machine learning. It is an opportunity for students and postdocs to present preliminary, ongoing or completed work and to network with other researchers working in related fields.
The first MASC-SLL was held in 2011 at Johns Hopkins University and the second in 2012 at the University of Maryland, College Park. This year the event will be held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in Baltimore, MD from 9:30 to 5:00 on Friday, 11 October 2013. There will be no registration charge and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Students and postdocs are encouraged to submit abstracts describing ongoing, planned, or completed research projects, including previously published results and negative results. Research in any field applying computational methods to any aspect of human language, including speech and learning, from all areas of computer science, linguistics, engineering, neuroscience, information science, and related fields, is welcome. All accepted submissions will be presented as posters and some will also be invited for short oral presentations. Student-led breakout sessions will also be held to discuss papers or topics of interest and stimulate interaction and discussion. Suggest breakout session topics via easychair.
