New PhD Program "Empirical Speech and Language Processing" (ESP)

The PhD program 'Empirical Speech and language Processing' (ESP) at Munich University is at the intersection 
of the disciplines Computer Linguistics, Computational Statistics, Information Science and Phonetics and 
Speech Processing. A characteristic of these disciplines is the increasingly empirical-based approach to 
research and the goal of the ESP is to make use of the synergies between them and to extend them.

ESP is conceived as a research-based and systematically structured teaching program. PhD students will have 
many opportunities to present and discuss their research in colloquia, thematic workshops and symposia with 
invited researchers. Contributions will be made to the program by internationally acclaimed scientists and 
the program will draw upon extensive speech and language corpora, well established infrastructural support 
and a wide range of research projects in both basic and applied research.
