The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Speech and Language Technologies (SLT) and their Applications is a flagship collaboration between UKRI (the UK’s national academic research funder), the University of Sheffield, and an ever-growing number of industry partners.
Our second Annual Conference will showcase the research being undertaken by our CDT’s three cohorts of PhD students as well as researchers in the Department of Computer Science’s long-established Speech and Hearing (SpandH) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) research groups who, together, constitute one of the largest groupings of speech and language researchers in the UK with world leading research publications and impact.
As well as our student research, you can find out more about the CDT’s unique 4-year Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) training programme which prepares students to take up R&D and / or leadership roles in industry.
This 2-day event is an opportunity for our students, academics, current and potential industrial partners, and other academic groups in the UK to meet and see first-hand the innovative work going on in our CDT. The event will feature:
Keynote talks from leading international academics and industrial practitioners
Talks from our students describing their PhD research
Panel discussion covering technical and ethical topics.
Training programme spotlights including the exciting work our students have been doing with a national UK charity
Networking opportunities with industry and academics
We are updating our conference website all the time with more information about the conference, our keynote speakers, and student presentations.
