SLSP is a yearly conference series aimed at promoting and displaying excellent research on the wide spectrum of statistical methods that are currently in use in computational language or speech processing. It aims at attracting contributions from both fields. Though there exist large, well-known conferences and workshops hosting contributions to any of these areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting where synergies between subdomains and people will hopefully happen. In SLSP 2016, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology.


SLSP 2016 will take place in Pilsen, nominated one of the two European Capitals of Culture in 2015. The venue will be the the NTIS research centre at the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia.
