17th Workshop on Spoken Dialogue Systems for PhDs, PostDocs & New Researchers

Proceedings available here!

Singapore, July 27-28, 2021

YRRSDS 2021 is an open forum for spoken dialog researchers to discuss their work and research interests. This is the 17th edition of the annual roundtable that provides a networking platform for young researchers in the field. It serves as a playground for stimulating new ideas, sharing tools, and discuss current issues in Spoken Dialog Systems research.

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.

This year's edition is collocated with SIGdial 2021.

The workshop this year will be fully virtual. Registration has opened! Please fill out the form here
