The Young Researchers' Roundtable on Spoken
Dialog Systems is an annual
workshop designed for students, post docs, and junior researchers
working in research related to spoken dialogue systems in both academia
and industry. The roundtable provides an open forum where participants
can discuss their research interests, current work and future plans. The
workshop is meant to provide an interdisciplinary forum for creative
thinking about current issues in spoken dialogue systems research, and
help create a stronger international network of young researchers
working in the field.
Please note that by 'young researchers' the workshop's organizers mean
to target students and researchers in the field who are at a relatively
early stage of their careers, and in no way mean to imply that participants must meet certain age restrictions.
This year, the workshop was held on September 13th-14th, 2009, in London, England,
as a satellite workshop to Interspeech 2009, the day after SIGDIAL 2009. It was held at
Queen Mary University of London, not far from the Interspeech location.
Previous workshops were held in Columbus (ACL 2008), Antwerp (Interspeech 2007), Pittsburgh (Interspeech 2006) and Lisbon (Interspeech 2005).
Here is the poster [PDF] [JPEG] and call for papers [PDF] advertising the workshop. Please post them in your department!
