The LTI Student Research Symposium (SRS) is a one-day series of talks and poster presentations designed both to increase awareness of the diverse aspects of language technologies research conducted by students within the LTI, as well as to introduce incoming LTI students to the work of current students.
One of the talks will be selected for a "Best Presentation Award", which will be announced at the end of the Symposium. The winner of the "Best Presentation Award" will receive a cash prize of $500. Additionally, two Honorable Mentions will be selected, each receiving a cash prize of $100, and a $100 for "Best Poster Award" will also be presented. This year, we have a new track for Software/tools presentation and the best poster in this track will be awarded a "Best Software/Tool Poster" and a cash prize of $100.
An oral presentation in the Symposium fulfills the yearly presentation requirement and the speaking requirement for LTI PhD and MS students.
