NODALIDA addresses all aspects of speech recognition and synthesis, natural language processing, and computational linguistics—including work in closely related neighbouring disciplines (such as, for example, linguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied to bear relevance to speech and language technologies. 

We invite proposals for workshops, to be held on Wednesday, May 22, immediately preceding the main conference.  Workshops can be either scheduled for a full day (morning and afternoon) or for half a day. Workshop proposals can be submitted in free-text form, anytime before Monday, December 10, by email to ‘’.

Workshop proposals must include adequate information on at least the following aspects:

  • proposed workshop title
