Student Workshop on Human Language Technology in 2011 HIT-MSRA Summer School
Call for Paper
The sixth HIT-MSRA Summer School on Human Language Technology, supported by Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) and hosted by the MOE-MS Joint Key Lab of NLP and Speech in Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), will be held in Harbin, China, from August 1 to 10, 2011.
This year's session of the HIT-MSRA summer school goes beyond the core areas of applied language technology, featuring various areas of computational research on human-human and/or human-machine communication. In addition to taught courses, the summer school will also feature a number of self-contained research talks and a student workshop.
For this workshop, we now invite original submissions on all aspects of human language technology and computational linguistics. All submissions will be reviewed by a program committee of domestic and international experts, who will make a selection from the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and potential impact of the work. The first author must be a student (at Master’s or PhD level, or at an advanced undergraduate level).
