L²F - INESC ID Lisboa
What's New...


INESC ID's Spoken Language Systems Laboratory (L²F - Laboratório de sistemas de Língua Falada) was created in January 2001, bringing together several research groups which could potentially add relevant contributions to the area of computational processing of spoken language for Portuguese.


On June 27-29, 2011
L²F received the visit of Prof. Maxine Eskenazi from the Language Technologies Institute of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU/LTI)
