The SLT-CODE hackathon is open to anyone interested in speech and language technology, including researchers, programmers, user experience designers, practitioners, and enthusiasts. In-person participation is preferred, but remote participation is possible if at least one team member is local. Teams will typically have 3-6 members. The hackathon has limited capacity and is seeking a diverse group of participants to create projects related to low-resource speech and language technology and applications. The application process is through a form, and the deadline to apply is October 14, 2022. Participation in the SLT workshop is not required to participate in the hackathon.Register Here!
