Do you want me to refer to your website?

Dear all,

I'm in the process of working on my website, part of which presents a
quick overview of auditory scene analysis (ASA).  The URL is

One of the sections is presently called "Useful links" (I may rename
it).  Originally I had intended to insert the  URLs of the websites of
other people working on ASA.  However, I realized that such links are
transient, as people relocate or rename their web pages, and that a
lot of work would be involved in keeping the links up to date.  So I
thought I would let Google do the work.

My plan is to give the visitor a list of Google-type Boolean search
expressions instead of URLs.  Each one will be followed by a set of
brief descriptive phrases that will tell what sort of work the
researcher does.  I will try to group them in some sensible way.

Below, I have given some examples that I have tested out, with the
search expressions enclosed by angle brackets.  They should be able to
find the researchers even if they change institutions.

If you are doing ASA-related research and would like your website to
be "linked" in this way, please send me a Google search expression
that you believe will always find your current website, followed by a
list of short phrases that describe your work,  in the format shown in
the examples below.  Please put your name -- as it appears on your
website -- as the first part of the search expression.
