Our third annual SLT CDT conference will be held in June 2023. This year it will be co-located with the national UK Speech 2023 conference

The conference will be hosted in the University of Sheffield's newly opened The Wave building. 

It will bring together researchers and practitioners from a range of areas with interests in computational processing of speech signals and written language.

The conference will showcase the research being undertaken by our CDT’s PhD students, students from the University of Edinburgh's CDT in Natural Language Processing, as well as those in the Department of Computer Science's long-established Speech and Hearing (SpandH) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) research groups. 

Sheffield's SpandH and NLP research groups constitute one of the largest groupings of SLT researchers in the UK with world leading research publications and impact. 

The conference will consist of:

  • keynote talks from leading international academics and industrial practitioners 

  • student talks and posters describing their PhD research

  • presentations showcasing the work our students have undertaken as part of each CDT’s unique four-year training programmes (Sheffield and Edinburgh).

  • a panel discussion covering technical and ethical topics.

Conference registration fees cover access to all sessions (oral and poster), coffee breaks (morning and afternoon), Tuesday's buffet lunch, as well as refreshments during the poster sessions.
