Subject: Supported Undergraduate Positions on Summer Research Teams

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Language and Speech Processing is hosting the Fifth Frederick Jelinek Memorial Summer Workshop ( We are seeking outstanding members of the current junior class to join a summer research workshop on language engineering from June 11 to August 3, 2018.

The 8-week workshop provides an intense intellectual environment.  Undergraduates work closely alongside senior researchers as part of a multi-university research team, which has been assembled for the summer to attack some problem of current interest.

The teams for summer 2018 include:

* Multilingual End-to-End ASR for Incomplete Data

* Grounded Sequence-to-Sequence Transduction

* General-Purpose Sentence Representation Learning


We hope that this stimulating and selective experience will encourage students to pursue graduate study in human language technology, as it has been doing for many years.

The summer workshop provides:

* An opportunity to explore an exciting new area of research

* A two-week tutorial on current speech and language technology

* Mentoring by experienced researchers

* Participation in project planning activities

* Use of cloud computing services

* A $5,600 stipend and $2,300 towards per diem expenses

* Private furnished accommodation for the duration of the workshop

* Travel expenses to and from the workshop venue
