Announcing the "lutear-auditory-simulation" Mailing List

Hello People,

  This message is to announce the "lutear-auditory-simulation" mailing
list.  The list may be joined by anybody (international internet users), by
sending the following message to "mailbase@mailbase.ac.uk":

        To:             mailbase@mailbase.ac.uk
        Subject:        (you may leave this blank)
        Message text:
                        join lutear-auditory-simulation Ann Jones

 - where "Ann Jones" should be replaced by your own first and second names.

  The anouncement of the next release of LUTEar will be announced using the
present mailing list and the new "lutear-auditory-simulation", but all
future announcements will only be sent to the new mailing list.

  The aims of the "lutear-auditory-simulation" mailing list are as follows:-

(1) Quick bug reporting to all concerned:

        People can report suspected bugs, so that in the while I investigate,
        others can be aware of potential problems.

(2) The expression of "wish lists" which others can comment on:

        This might give me idea of priorities for extensions of LUTEar.

(3) Discussion of development of LUTEar:

        The development of LUTEar is an on-going process.  The mailing list
        provide a forum for discussion of any major changes which I am
        considering.  This would allow me to avoid introducing unpopular changes
        in LUTEar.

(4) Encourage users to share extra routines they have written amongst

        One of the very attractive features of LUTEar is that is provides a
        platform for investigations, so that people can compare results obtained
        with a "standard" piece of software.  Extra routines written by
users can
        be assessed, by other users as well as by myself, and subsequently
        incorporated in the standard code.

(5) Reporting of successes and failures in attemping to apply LUTEar to various
    problems :

        This will give everyone feedback about the performance of LUTEar,
        providing individuals wih further ideas on how they can use it, and
        highlight as yet unresolved difficulties.

(6) The discussion of optimum parameter settings for various applications:

        Hopefully when people report results obtained with LUTEar, they will be
        quite specific about which routines and parameters they used.

(7) Exchange of scientific information amongst LUTEar users:

        Users of LUTEar must have common scientific interests! So many of us
        probably do already know each other and something about each
other's work.
        Nevertheless, it would be good to know who "the others" are, and to
        discuss specific problems we are trying to apply LUTear to.

  I indebted to Angela Darling (angie@phonetics.ucl.ac.uk) for providing
the major portion of the above text.
