VLSP 2021 - Call for participation

The Eighth International Workshop on Vietnamese Language and Speech Processing (VLSP 2021)

Workshop dateNov 26 Dec 18, 2021

Venue: University of Information Technology, VNU-HCM, Ho Chi Minh City

Workshop objectives

The goal of this workshop series is to attempt a synthesis of research in Vietnamese language and speech processing and to bring together researchers and professionals working in this domain. Since the VLSP 2016 edition, VLSP workshops are composed of two technical parts: one part focused on VLSP software demonstration with technical reports, the other dedicated to an evaluation campaign on different tasks of text and speech processing; and a panel organized for the VLSP members to exchange and discuss the development of the community.

In 2020, two important events are worth to cite: the offical foundation of the Association for Vietnamese Language and Speech Processing (VLSP) as a chapter of Vietnam Association for Information Processing (VAIP) and the first publication of VLSP proceedings on ACL Anthology.  

The VLSP 2021 workshop, the 8th edition of the VLSP series, in addition to the activities carried out in recent years, includes equally a session for presenting research in Vietnamese language processing. 

Scientific papers

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting their works on Vietnamese text processing or speech processing for peer review. Accepted papers will be published in the VLSP 2021 proceedings on ACL Anthology.

Software demonstration

All applications dealing with Vietnamese text processing or speech processing are welcome. Each demo system should be provided with a technical report.

Evaluation campaign

VLSP shared-tasks aim at promoting the most efficient methods for VLSP tools. The organization of these campaigns with sponsorships from academia and industry permit to build and offer to the VLSP community gold datasets for training and testing Vietnamese text and speech processing systems.

The participants to the evaluation campaign will be asked to present their system in a dedicated technical paper.

Shared-task registration

Intended participants are invited to fill in the form to participate in one or more VLSP 2021 shared-tasks. They will receive an user agreement to sign before the date of data release. Please follow the link to the description of each shared-task for details.

We do not have a strict requirement about page limit. However, all teams are recommended to submit a paper from 4 to 8 pages, in English. Please note that the VLSP 2021 submissions include papers presenting software submitted for demonstration or evaluation or scientific papers discussing research in Vietnamese language and speech processing.
