SLTU (Spoken Languages Technologies for Under-resourced languages) Conference

The SLTU (Spoken Languages Technologies for Under-resourced languages)
meeting is a technical conference focused on spoken language
processing for under-resourced languages. This first workshop will
focus on Asian languages, and the idea is to mainly (but not
exclusively) target languages of the area (Vietnamese, Khmer, Lao,
Chinese dialects, Thai, etc.). However, all contributions on other
under-resourced languages of the world are warmly welcomed.
