     Overview

    The Young Researchers' Roundtable on Spoken Dialog Systems is an annual workshop designed for students, post docs, and junior researchers working in research related to spoken dialogue systems in both academia and industry. The roundtable provides an open forum where participants can discuss their research interests, current work and future plans. The workshop is meant to provide an interdisciplinary forum for creative thinking about current issues in spoken dialogue systems research, and help create a stronger international network of young researchers working in the field.

    Please note that by "young researchers" the workshop's organizers mean to target students and researchers in the field who are at a relatively early stage of their careers, and in no way mean to imply that participants must meet certain age restrictions.

    YRRSDS 2011 will be kindly hosted by Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR. (immediately before SIGDIAL 2011 and ACL HLT 2011).

    Participants will be asked to submit a 2-page position paper and propose three possible topics for discussion. See the Submission page for more details.
