Text, Speech and Dialogue ( TSD ) is an annual conference Involving topics on natural language processing and computational linguistics . The meeting was held everytime September alternating in Brno and Plzen, Czech Republic .

The first text, Speech and Dialogue conference took place in Brno in 1998.


TSD series Evolved as a prime forum for interaction tussen beide researchers in ghosts and written language processing from all over the world.
