VLSP 2020 Call for Participation

The Seventh International Workshop on Vietnamese Language and Speech Processing (VLSP 2020)

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 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. As is traditional, one panel will be organized for the VLSP community to exchange and discuss.

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 2020 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. 

Paper submission

System authors are invited to submit papers of up to 8 pages, in English. Please note that this workshop is only concerned with articles presenting software submitted for demonstration or evaluation. All papers will be submitted online, in PDF format using the IEEE standard template, to the workshop management website.
