Midwest Speech and Language Days (MSLD) is a 2-day meeting that continues and expands upon the tradition of Illinois Speech Day and the Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, MSLD returns in 2024 at the University of Michigan. This non-archival meeting invites presenters and attendees come from Midwest universities and research institutions to discuss recent and in-progress work. The goal is to increase awareness of speech and language research going on in the region and to foster collaboration among sites.
