The Callier Center for Communication Disorders at UT Dallas is accepting
nominations for the 2010 Callier Prize in Communication Disorders.

The biennial award recognizes individuals whose leadership has promoted
scientific advances and significant developments in the diagnosis and
treatment of communication disorders.

The award, which rotates among the fields of audiology and speech-language
pathology, includes a $10,000 prize. Nominees for the 2010 Callier Prize
should come from the areas of speech and language.

“The Callier Center was delighted to bestow the first Callier Prize to Dr.
Hugh J. McDermott, a leading researcher and designer of cochlear implants
systems and digital hearing aids,” said Dr. Thomas Campbell, executive
director. “We eagerly anticipate receiving nominations from around the
world for outstanding researchers and clinicians in the speech and language
communities.”

The 2010 Callier Prize Committee, which is chaired by Dr. Anne van Kleeck,
is made up of researchers and practitioners in the fields of speech and
language:

- Peter F. Assmann, Ph.D., UT Dallas.
- Christine Dollaghan, Ph.D., UT Dallas.
- Paul Fletcher, Ph.D. University College Cork.
- Audrey L. Holland, Ph.D., University of Arizona.
- William F. Katz, Ph.D., UT Dallas.
- Raymond D Kent, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison.
- Jon F. Miller, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The winner will be announced in March and will receive the award at a
special one-day conference sponsored by the Foundation for the Callier
Center at its Dallas location in Spring 2011.

To nominate an individual, send a written statement, not to exceed two
pages, summarizing the nominee's contributions to the areas of speech and
language, along with a curriculum vitae, to Dr. van Kleeck at
annevkutdallas.edu. The deadline for nominations is January 4, 2010.

The Callier Center, with locations in Dallas and on the UT Dallas campus in
Richardson, is one of the nation’s pre-eminent educational, research and
treatment centers focusing on communication and communication disorders.
The center is part of the university’s School of Behavioral and Brain
Sciences. In 2008, U.S. News & World Report ranked UT Dallas’ audiology
program fourth in the nation and its speech-language-pathology program
12th, resulting in both programs being ranked in the top 5 percent
nationally in their respective disciplines.
