The TSD series has evolved as a prime forum for interaction between
researchers in both spoken and written language processing from all over
the world. The TSD conference proceedings form a book published by
Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI)
series. The TSD proceedings are regularly indexed by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index. Moreover, LNAI series is listed in
all major citation databases such as DBLP, SCOPUS, EI, INSPEC or COMPENDEX.

The history of the TSD conference dates back to 1998 when the event was
held for the first time, that time as an international workshop, in Brno,
Czech Republic. The essential idea behind the project was to establish
a scientific meeting platform that would act as a bridge between the East
and the West.

The city of Plzen (or Pilsen in Germanic languages) is situated in the
heart of West Bohemia at the confluence of four rivers: Uhlava, Uslava,
Radbuza, and Mze. With its approx. 171,000 inhabitants it is the fourth
largest city in the Czech Republic and an important industrial, commercial,
and administrative centre. It is also the capital of the Pilsen Region. In
addition, it has been elected the European Capital of Culture for 2015 by
the Council of the European Union.

The city of Plzen has a convenient location in the centre of West Bohemia,
close to the German border, on the confluence of four rivers. The place
lied on the crossroads of important medieval trade routes and nowadays it
naturally forms an important highway and railroad junction; thus, it is
easily accessible using both individual and public means of transport.

Plzen lies 85 km (53 mi) south-westwards from the Czech capital Prague, 222
km (138 mi) from the Bavarian capital Munich, 148 km (92 mi) from the Saxon
capital Dresden, and 174 km (108 mi) from the Upper Austrian capital Linz.

The closest international airport is the Vaclav Havel Airport Prague, which
is 75 km (47 mi) away and one can get from there to Plzen very easily
within about two hours by Prague public transport and a train/bus.
