You are cordially invited to submit papers for presentation at SLaTE 2009.
The ISCA (International Speech Communication Association) Special Interest Group
on Speech and Language Technology in Education (SLaTE) promotes the use of
speech and natural language processing for education, and provides a forum
for exchanging news of recent research developments and other matters of interest
in this topic. For further information see the SLaTE website:  http://www.sigslate.org

SLaTE 2009 is the second ISCA Workshop on Speech and Language Technology in
Education.  It follows SLaTE 2007, held in Farmington, Pennsylvania, USA, and has
its origins in the STiLL meeting organized by KTH in Marholmen, Sweden, in 1998.
The SLaTE 2009 workshop website can be accessed from the SLaTE website, or
directly at http://www.eee.bham.ac.uk/SLaTE2009

The workshop will focus on research issues, applications, development tools and
collaboration.  It will be concerned with all topics which concern speech and
language technology for education. Papers will discuss theories, applications,
evaluation, limitations, persistent difficulties, general research tools and techniques.
Papers that critically evaluate approaches or processing strategies will be especially
welcome, as will prototype demonstrations of real-world applications.

The scope of acceptable topic interests includes but is not limited to:

 * Use of speech recognition for education
 * Use of natural language processing for education
 * Use of spoken language dialogue for education
 * Applications using speech and/or natural language processing for education
 * Intelligent tutoring systems using speech and natural language
 * Tutor assessment

There will be oral and poster sessions as well as demonstrations of software.

SLaTE 2009 will be held at Wroxall Abbey Estate, in Warwickshire England,
immediately before Interspeech 2009 (http://www.interspeech2009.org).

The workshop fee will include all accommodation and meals at Wroxall Abbey.
Situated in 27 acres of open parkland, the Estate occupies a unique setting amidst
the peace and tranquillity of the Warwickshire countryside. Once the country seat of
Sir Christopher Wren, Wroxall boasts a magnificent collection of listed buildings and
private grounds, which made it an ideal venue for the workshop. Wroxall is situated
just 10 miles from Birmingham International Airport, 13 miles from Stratford-upon-
Avon and 6 miles from Warwick. It is anticipated that visits to Stratford and Warwick
will be included in the social programme.
