2017 MASC-SLL Call for Papers
Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning
May 6th, 2017 George Washington University, Washington, DC
The sixth annual Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning will be hosted at the George Washington University (Washington, DC) on May 6th, 2017. The Student Colloquium is intended to bring together students studying computational approaches to speech, language, and learning, so that they can introduce their research to the local student community, give and receive feedback, and engage each other in collaborative discussions.
Students are encouraged to submit 1-page abstracts describing ongoing, planned, or completed research projects, including previously published results as well as negative results. Student research in any field applying computational methods to any aspect of human language (speech, text, other modalities, linguistics, neuroscience, information science, and related fields) is welcome. Submissions and presentations must be made by students or postdocs. Accepted submissions will be presented as either posters or oral talks. See http://www.mascsll.org/2017/call-for-papers for abstract submission details. The submission deadline is March 31.
There will be no registration fee for the colloquium. Students and postdocs are encouraged to consult with their supervisors about potential reimbursement of travel expenses.

The sixth Mid-Atlantic Student Colloquium on Speech, Language and Learning (http://www.mascsll.org/) is a one day event bringing together students, postdocs, faculty and researchers from universities in the Mid-Atlantic area doing research on speech, language or machine learning. The colloquium is an opportunity for students and postdocs to present preliminary or completed work and to network with other researchers working in related fields.
This year the event will be held at the George Washington University, Washington, DC and held on Saturday, May 6th, 2017. The colloquium will run from around 9:30am to 5:00pm. There will be no registration charge and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Students and postdocs should submit one page abstracts describing ongoing, planned, or completed research on computational methods applied to any aspect of human language. Appropriate abstracts will be selected for presentation during a one of several poster sessions of for a short oral presentation.
The goal of the event is to network, share the research you are doing, and learn about what others are working on. We do not require that your work be unpublished in order to be presented. We strongly encourage you to submit anything from work-in-progress to work that has been previously published and presented at a conference. Everything is welcome!
The exact program is still being determined, but usually include one or more invited talks, a panel session, poster sessions, and breakout/discussion sessions.
