We propose AutoMin, the first shared task on automatic minuting of meeting proceedings. Our objective is to drive community efforts towards understanding the challenges of the task and develop tools for this important use case especially in the current world which had to go on-line far more than expected. With this shared task, we would invite the Speech and Natural Language Processing community to investigate the challenges of automatic minuting with real meeting data in two different settings: technical project meetings (both in English and Czech) and parliamentary proceedings (English).


A SIGDial 2021 Special Session on Automatic Minuting and Summarization of Dialogues, Multi-Party Meetings

The SummDial special session at SIGDial 2021 aims to stimulate intense discussions around the challenging topic of Automatic Minuting and set the tone for further interests, research, and collaboration in both Speech and Natural Language Processing communities. The 3-hour long event would consist of a keynote, a panel discussion, lightning talks, oral and poster paper presentations. Details of the event are available in the website.

EUROSAI Congress

Update (March 2021): Congress was divided into two parts. First part will be online, the second part will take place, when the pandemic situation will be solved and will be safe to meet again.

Update (April 2020): The EUROSAI Congress was postponed for one year.

The XI EUROSAI Congress that will be held in Prague in 2020 was named “3C-3E-3i“. These acronyms express what the Congress should be like and what its main message is. The goal of Congress will be to provide all participants with easily accessible and usable information for their work. Information they will be able to readily use upon their arrival home. Participation in the Congress should be the impetus for each delegation that desires to instantly propel their work forward to the benefit of citizens in the given country. It is the citizens to whom SAIs should bring added value.

  • 3C – communication, cooperation, comparison
  • 3E – effectiveness, efficiency, economy
  • 3i – information, innovation, interactivity

26th International Trade Fair of Student Firms

Update 2 (February 2021): The 26th Trade Fair will take place as an online event.
Update 1 (March 2020): The 26th Trade Fair was cancelled, due to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak.

We will be attending another year of the International Trade Fair of Student Firms, where we will run again the competition The Clearest Voice and we will be doing the live subtitling during presentations of student’s companies. This event is interesting as well as a challenge for our systems, because of the majority of participants are non-native English speakers.
