VLSP shared-tasks aim at promoting the most efficient methods for these important 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.

Participants of all speech shared tasks this year have to contribute or join to build the dataset before receiving it. The main task is to transcribe or to correct the transcription or to verify the same identity for a small part of the dataset.

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