Charter and Scope
ACM Transactions on Speech and Language Processing focuses on practical areas of the design, development, and evaluation of speech- and text-processing systems along with their associated theory. It publishes application-oriented research, survey papers, and descriptions of novel applications. TSLP reviewers place emphasis on the originality and the applicability of submissions.
Example topics within TSLP's scope include:
- Natural language understanding, generation, and parsing
- Dialog management
- Machine translation
- Document summarization
- Question answering
- Detection and tracking of entities, relationships, topics, and novelty
- Language modeling for machine translation and speech recognition
- Speech prosody
- Audio indexing
- Spoken document retrieval
- Machine learning and pattern analysis applied to the above
TSLP is an electronic quarterly journal with an annual printed volume for library archival. TSLP editors will try to return reviews for a submission in each review cycle within three months of receipt of the submission. It is expected that the average turnaround time will be even shorter.
Papers will appear online, without page numbers, immediately upon acceptance ahead of quarterly publication dates. They will become part of the ACM Digital Library after the publication date of the issue in which they appear.
