Welcome to the homepage of SIG-SLPAT!

The purpose of this SIG is to promote the application of speech and language technologies to the field of assistive technologies, especially for people whose impairments may affect their abilities to communicate.

Speech and Language Processing for Assistive Technologies is an inherently interdisciplinary endeavor that attracts researchers from such diverse fields as natural language processing (NLP), speech processing, speech pathology, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), human-computer interaction (HCI), and accessibility. SIG-SLPAT works to bring all of these disciplines and researchers together toward a common goal. Together, we can be more effective than the sum of our parts.
