INSTITUTE OF ACOUSTICS SPEECH GROUP Two day meeting, 5th & 6th January, 1995 LINKS BETWEEN SPEECH TECHNOLOGY, SPEECH SCIENCE AND HEARING Hosted by the Institute for Language, Speech and Hearing University of Sheffield Previous messages about this meeting have suggested that we might hold a second-day workshop. There has been a lot of support for this, so bowing to market forces, we're going to do so... The format isn't fixed yet, but: For those wishing to attend: 1 We will allow a small-ish number of poster presentations. These may be displayed from the morning of 5th January, and there will be an "official" poster session from 9:00 until 11:00 on 6th January. In this session we will also include Sheffield work which we have had to move from 5th January to make space. Please note: Posters should be kept brief and focussed. We will not be expecting polished work; indeed we would welcome more provocative presentations which might serve to catalyse discussion in subsequent sessions... This is supposed to be a gloves-off, sleeves-rolled-up and possibly even headbands-worn meeting. ;-> If you wish to present a poster, please let us know soon. 2 Discussions will take place at least from 11 to 1 on 6th January We will have workshop discussions centred around a few 'burning issues'. Participants might consider bringing an overhead foil or two to illustrate any points they wish to make during discussions. 3 We must inform the Halls of Residence of requirements by 15 December If you want to take advantage of student accommodation, at 20.25 pounds per night, again please let us know soon. 4 Proceedings Authors are being encouraged to produce papers, at least post hoc, possibly revised as a result of discussions at the workshop. No guarantees yet, but we'll try our best. :-) Have fun, mmalcolm. posn. research facilitator where institute for language speech and hearing sheffield university c/o department of computer science regent court 211 portobello street sheffield s1 4dp england vox (+44) 114 282 5594 fax (+44) 114 278 0972 email m.crawford(at)
