The Young Researchers' Roundtable on Spoken Dialogue Systems (YRRSDS) is an annual 2-day workshop designed for graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers working in research related to spoken dialogue systems in both academia and industry. YRRSDS provides an international forum where participants can get feedback on their work and ideas, get hands-on experience with new tools and systems, network with future employers, and hear from outstanding invited speakers.
