Welcome to SCALE ’18, the tenth annual Summer Camp for Applied Language Exploration. You follow in the trail blazed by exceptionally talented past participants who made substantive strides in HLT research during each of the previous SCALE workshops, and we are excited about the prospects for this summer’s projects. I am confident that the next nine weeks will be rewarding, both professionally and personally, as you work with new colleagues and enjoy the activities and amenities available in the local area. I also urge you to take full advantage of the open events and social activities of the Frederick Jelinek Memorial Summer Workshop in Speech and Language Technologies being organized concurrently by our campus colleagues. I appreciate your sharing this valuable summer time with us, and welcome any suggestions you may have for future SCALE workshops.
Best Regards –
