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 conferences and workshops hosting contributions to any of these areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting where synergies between the two domains will hopefully happen. In SLSP 2019, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology.


SLSP 2019 will take place in Ljubljana, a charming city full of art and one of the smallest capital cities in Europe. The venue will be:

  • Jožef Stefan Institute
  • Jamova cesta 39
  • 1000 Ljubljana
  • Slovenia


SLSP 2019 will consist of:

  • ▸ invited talks
  • ▸ peer-reviewed contributions
  • ▸ posters

  • — corpora and language resources
  • — data mining and semantic web
  • — information extraction
  • — information retrieval
  • — knowledge representation and ontologies
  • — lexicons and dictionaries
  • — machine translation
  • — multimodal technologies
  • — natural language understanding
  • — neural representation of speech and language
  • — opinion mining and sentiment analysis
  • — parsing
  • — part-of-speech tagging
  • — question-answering systems
  • — semantic role labelling
  • — speaker identification and verification
  • — speech and language generation
