A prestigious international Conference LREC 2014 – (Language Resources and Evaluation) in Reykjavik (Iceland) was held on May 26 to 31. The conference was attended with two poster presentations staff of our department Matus Pleva (http://bn.kemt.fei.tuke.sk/) and Daniel Hládek (http://nlp.web.tuke.sk/). Scientific results have been successfully presented to the international audience and multiple relevant contacts have been established.
Poster session was very well attended, even has sometimes been problem getting to discuss with the author of an interesting post. Several contacts were made with representatives of companies (Google, Amazon, etc.), universities and research institutes (Inesc-ID, etc.). Attendance at the conference contributed significantly to the visibility of our Department research in area of speech technologies.
