The Association for Vietnamese Language and Speech Processing (VLSP) is founded in July, 2020.

The VLSP Consortium regroups all academic and industrial research teams involved in Vietnamese language and speech processing. The very first kick-off meeting of this community was in 2005, organized at the Institute of Information Technology, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology. 

The national project on building basic resources and tools for VLSP, carried out from 2007 to 2009, has shown a first great effort of active research groups from universities and institutes in Vietnam and overseas for a good and durable development of the VLSP community.

Since 2012, the VLSP Consortium has organized a series of workshops, in conjunction with big international conferences organized in Vietnam. Until 2020, six events have taken place since then with different forms of activities such as technical reports, activity reports, discussion panel, shared tasks on VLSP.
