Benefits of sponsoring the conference


Interacting effectively with computers using human language—speech or text—has long been a challenge. Most experts believed doing so would be a critical advance in user interfaces with computers, comparable in impact to the Graphical User Interface.

Customer service

  • Telephone service

  • Chatbots on web sites

  • Company digital assistant apps

Get full value by signing up early and getting the value of publicity leading up to the conference, as well as high visibility at the conference itself, including talks if qualified proposals are received early. (With only one track and two days, talks won’t get lost in an overlarge program!) Get publicity when the web site is visited before and for a period after the conference. (We'll have updated content that attracts visitors.) Get credit in most email blasts and all press releases. And, of course, you will be a major presence at the conference itself.
