Message 2: MSc in Speech and Language Processing

Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 14:07:50 +0000
From: steve cassidy <>
Subject: MSc in Speech and Language Processing

		 MSc in Speech and Language Processing

	 Speech Hearing and Language Research Centre
		 Department of Linguistics

			 Macquarie University
			 Sydney, Australia

This Masters program at Macquarie University, Sydney, has been
designed to take advantage of a strong research and development base
to provide a grounding in speech and language technology for graduates
who want to be part of this exciting field.

This is a coursework degree and can be taken over one year full time
or two years part time. Starting in 2000 we are hoping to offer the
degree in distance mode (by correspondence) -- you should be able to
complete the degree within two years in this mode.

The program includes a set of compulsory units introducing speech and
language processing and a range of elective units which explore topics
in detail. Students complete a one-paper research/development project
in thier final semester.

The course is designed for graduates in related disciplines, for
example, Computer Science, Linguistics, or Electrical Engineering, who
wish to gain sufficient expertise in this inherently
cross-disciplinary area to effectively participate in speech and
language projects in industry and academia.

Further details on the course can be found at our web site:

Message 3: NEH Summer Stipend ($4,000) Deadline Announcement

Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 10:36:16 -0400
From: Bramson, Leon <>
Subject: NEH Summer Stipend ($4,000) Deadline Announcement

Deadline: October 1, 1999 for awards during the summer of the year

The National Endowment for the Humanities announces the competition
for Summer Stipends awards. These awards support two consecutive
months of full-time work on projects that will make a significant
contribution to the humanities. In most cases, faculty members of
colleges and universities in the United States must be nominated by
their institutions for the Summer Stipends competition, and each of
these institutions may nominate two applicants. Prospective applicants
who will require nomination should acquaint themselves with their
institution's nomination procedures well before the October 1
deadline. Individuals employed in nonteaching capacities in colleges
and universities and independent scholars not affiliated with colleges
and universities do not require nomination and may apply directly to
the program. Adjunct faculty and academic applicants with appointments
terminating by the summer of 2000 may also apply without nomination.
TENURE: Tenure must cover two full and uninterrupted months and will
normally be held between May 1, 2000 and September 30, 2000. STIPEND:

INQUIRIES: 202/606-8551

PURPOSE AND SCOPE: The Summer Stipends program provides opportunities
for individuals to pursue advanced work in disciplines of the
humanities during the summer. Projects proposed for support may
contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public's
understanding of the humanities, and they may address broad topics or
consist of research and study in a single field.

ELIGIBILITY: Applicants need not have advanced degrees, but neither
candidates for degrees nor persons seeking support for work toward a
degree are eligible to apply for Summer Stipends. Persons who have
held a major fellowship or research grant or its equivalent during the
1997-98 academic year or during subsequent academic years are
ineligible for Summer Stipends. (A "major fellowship or research
grant" is a postdoctoral award that provides support for a continuous
period of time equal to at least one term of the academic year; that
enables the recipient to pursue scholarly research, personal study,
professional development, or writing; that provides a stipend of at
least $10,000; and that comes from sources other than the recipient's
employing institution. Sabbaticals and grants from a person's own
institution are not considered major fellowships.)

SELECTION PROCEDURES: Reviewers consider the significance of the proposed
project to the humanities, the quality of the applicant's work, the
conception and description of the project, and the likelihood that the
work will be accomplished.

For further information and application materials, persons interested in
these programs can use the telephone number and e-mail address provided
above, or they can write to: NEH Summer Stipends, Room 318, National
Endowment for the Humanities,1100 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington,
D.C. 20506. All applications must be postmarked on or before October 1,
1999. Please note that the Endowment does not accept applications
submitted by FAX or e-mail.
