Call for Participation
SLaTE Workshop on Speech and Language Technology in Education
ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop
The Summit Inn, Farmington, Pennsylvania USA
October 1-3, 2007.

Speech and natural language processing technologies have evolved from being 
emerging new technologies to being reliable techniques that can be used in 
real applications. One worthwhile application is education. This is not 
only helpful to the end user, the student, but also to the researcher who 
can learn more about the technology from observing its use in a real 
setting. This workshop will include presentations of both research projects 
and real applications in the domain of speech and language technology in 
education.

Important Dates:
Full 4-page paper deadline: May 1, 2007.
Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2007.
Early registration deadline: August 1, 2007.
Preliminary programme available: September 1, 2007.
Workshop will take place: October 1-3, 2007.

Location:
The workshop will be held in the beautiful Laurel Highlands in Southwestern 
Pennsylvania about 50 miles from Pittsburgh. In early October the 
vegetation in the Highlands puts on a beautiful show of colors and the 
weather is still not too chilly. The event will take place at the Summit 
Inn, situated on one of the Laurel Ridges. It is close to the Laurel 
Caverns where amateur spelunkers can visit the underground caverns. The 
first night event will be a hayride and dinner at a local winery and the 
banquet will take place at Frank Lloyd Wright's wonderful Fallingwater.
