Undergraduate Spots on NSF-Supported Summer Research Teams

The University of Washington is hosting the 2015 Jelinek Summer Workshop on Speech and Language Technology (JSALT), in cooperation with the Johns Hopkins Center for Speech and Language Processing. We are seeking outstanding members of the current junior class to join a summer research workshop on language engineering from June 22 to August 14, 2015.

The 8-week workshop provides an intense intellectual environment. Undergraduates work closely alongside more senior researchers as part of a multi-university research team, which has been assembled for the summer to attack some problem of current interest.  The teams and topics for summer 2015 include:

 * Far-field speech enhancement and recognition in mismatched settings
 * Continuous wide-band machine translation
 * Probabilistic transcription of languages with no native-language transcribers

We hope that this stimulating and selective experience will encourage students to pursue graduate study in human language technology, as it has been doing for many years.

The summer workshop provides:
 * An opportunity to explore an exciting new area of research
 * A two-week tutorial on current speech and language technology
 * Mentoring by experienced researchers
 * Participation in project planning activities
 * Use of cloud computing services
 * A $5,500 stipend and $2,800 towards per diem expenses
 * Private furnished accommodation for the duration of the workshop
 * Travel expenses to and from the workshop venue

Applications should be received by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2015. The applicant must provide the name and contact information of a faculty nominator, who will be asked to upload a recommendation by March 6, 2015.

Apply online here:

Questions can be directed to Prof. Mari Ostendorf

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
