Annual Conference 2023
Tuesday 13 June – Wednesday 14 June 2023
Our third annual SLT CDT conference will be held in June 2023. This year it will be co-located with the national UK Speech 2023 conference.
The conference will be hosted in the Faculty of Engineering's grade II listed Sir Frederick Mappin Building, the Heartspace, and St George's Church lecture theatre.
It will bring together researchers and practitioners from a range of areas with interests in computational processing of speech signals and written language.
The conference will showcase the research being undertaken by our CDT’s PhD students, students from the University of Edinburgh's CDT in Natural Language Processing, as well as those in the Department of Computer Science's long-established Speech and Hearing (SpandH) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) research groups.
Sheffield's SpandH and NLP research groups constitute one of the largest groupings of SLT researchers in the UK with world leading research publications and impact.
The conference will consist of:
keynote talks from leading international academics and industrial practitioners
student talks and posters describing their PhD research
presentations showcasing the work our students have undertaken as part of each CDT’s unique four-year training programme SLT and NLP’s
a panel discussion covering technical and ethical topics.
Conference registration fees cover access to all sessions (oral and poster), coffee breaks (morning and afternoon), buffet lunches, as well as refreshments during the poster sessions.
