___________________________________________________________________________ EDUCATION AREA at EUROSPEECH 2001 If you are thinking about submitting something for the ARENA and/or for the CD-ROM, please get in touch SOON!! If you are undecided, then please let me, on behalf of the EduSIG Committee and the Organisers of Eurospeech - urge you to make a positive dicision and come and join us! The meeting in Budapest was VERY rewarding and the cd-rom which was produced was of a high standard which is still proving very useful in laboratories around the world. This is one way to make sure your laboratory gets a HIGH PROFILE among the Speech Community. Let us have the latest versions of your materials to share with the whole community! Very best wishes, and looking forward to all your contributions! Mark Tatham Chairman, ISCA EduSIG PS - if you think you will miss the 19th March deadline - please let us have your proposal as soon as possible after this. Many thanks. ____________________________________________________________________________ ________ EDUCATION ARENA at EUROSPEECH 2001 www.eurospeech2001.org www.multimedia.tu-cottbus.de/edusig The Education Arena session during Eurospeech 2001- Scandinavia will showcase Computer-based Educational Materials in phonetics, speech technology and allied areas.
