Dear colleague, As you may recall, a Directory of Speech Technology Experts and a Directory of Organisations active in Speech Technology was set up by the Speech Technology Network (STN) in the course of the year 2000, at its site http://www.speechtechnology.net. In the last quarter of 2001 STN joined forces with ELSNET, the European Network of Excellence in Human Language Technologies (supported by the European Commission). Last week an agreement has been made between STN and ELSNET as a consequence of which the full responsibility for the Speech Technology Network will be taken over by ELSNET. STN's web server will be shut down, and we have started the transfer of the URL to the ELSNET site at http://www.elsnet.org. Information and documents that used to be accessible via the STN site will gradually be integrated in the ELSNET site. Two important components, the directory of experts and the directory of organisations, have already been transferred, and can now be found on the ELSNET website at http://www.elsnet.org/experts. html and http://www.elsnet.org/or ganisations.html The format has been adapted to the ELSNET house style, but the content has remained unchanged. The scope of the directories has been extended in that we would like to include experts and organisations in ALL LANGUAGE and SPEECH related technologies as well as neighbouring areas. The main objective is to offer people and organisations in the need for specific expertise a facility to get access to it, and at the same time we would like to offer experts and organisations opportunities to be found by people who can make use of their services. At this moment the directory contains over 850 profiles of experts and over 2500 profiles of organisations (private and public) from 56 countries all over the world. If you are an expert in one of these fields, and not yet included, we would like to invite you to enter your data and profile via our web form at http://u trecht.elsnet.org/cgi-ksh/show_db.ksh?expert0000 If you are part of an organisation active in the same areas we would like to invite you to add your organisation's profile to the organisation directory. You can find a web form at http://utre cht.elsnet.org/cgi-ksh/show_db.ksh?org0000 It will not take you more than a few minutes, and once you have entered your data, you can always update them yourself via a web form. If your or your organisation's information is already present in one of our directories, you will receive (or have received) a separate message giving you the password that is needed to correct your information. As some of our contact email addresses are no longer valid you may not have received your password. Please don't hesitate to contact me to get it. You can use the same form and password to delete yourself or your organisation from our directories. Expert and organisation profiles in our directory will remain valid for one year after the last update. By the end of this period you will receive an automatic reminder. If we do not receive a reaction within two months, we will assume that you want your data to be deleted permanently from this directory. Please note that your data will be publicly available on the web, but that we will not hand them over to third parties or use them for mass mailings that are not connected to the maintenance of the directory or the network as a whole. If you encounter any problems, or if you have other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. More information about ELSNET can be found at our website http://www.elsnet.org Please note that we have made an effort to prevent people from receiving this message more than once, but if you are using more than one email address or if you have multiple entries in our directories, you may receive more than one copy. We apologize for that. The list of addresses we are sending this letter to is an ad hoc list. If you are not interested in being included in our directories, you can just ignore this message (unless you want us to delete you or your organisation from our directories). We will not use this same list again for other mailings. Best regards, Steven Krauwer ELSNET Coordinator. ________________________________________________________________________ __ Steven Krauwer, ELSNET coordinator, UiL-OTS, Trans 10, 3512 JK Utrecht, NL phone: +31 30 253 6050, fax: +31 30 253 6000, email: s.krauwer_(on)_elsnet.org http://www.elsnet.org
