* FOR ROBUST SPEECH RECOGNITION *

 ***************************************************************************

At Sheffield we are investigating 'Computational Auditory Scene Analysis' -
modelling the ability of the auditory system to separate evidence from
different sound sources. We are now addressing the question of how CASA might
be used as a precursor to automatic speech recognition in natural (ie noisy
and unpredictable) environments. We have demonstrated that stochastic
recognition algorithms can readily be adapted to deal with the 'occluded'
evidence recovered by CASA.

We are seeking to recruit a research student to read for an M.Phil/Ph.D in
this field. For UK and EU applicants, funding may be arranged by a combination
of a Sheffield University Bursary and a grant from the Speech Research Unit,
DRA Malvern. Start date will be October 1995 or earlier.

Application forms and further particulars are available from
The Departmental Secretary, Department of Computer Science, University of
Sheffield, Regent Court, 211 Portobello St, Sheffield S1 4DP.

ESSIR

European Summer School
Information Retrieval
University of Glasgow, 3rd - 8th September 1995

The second european summer school in information retrieval (IR) will be
hosted this September by the Computing Science Department of the University
of Glasgow. The school is aimed at those starting out in the field of
information retrieval, and will cover a wide range of subjects. Each
course will be taught by IR researchers who are regarded as experts in
their field. Various student bursaries are available.

Planned courses

* Introduction
* IR models
* Architecture/implementation
* Natural language processing for IR
* User interfaces
* IR and databases
* Evaluation
* Intelligent retrieval
* IR and hypermedia
* Multimedia and retrieval
* IR and wide area networks

Information
Further information and application forms for this event and for bursaries
can be obtained either via WWW...

THE PARIS SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS CONFERENCE

October 12-14, 1995

Dear Colleague,

Some problems concerning the distribution of mail unfortunately occurred
during the last month in our University; they have now been solved. In
order to avoid any problems concerning the organization of our Syntax and
Semantics Conference, our secretary will confirm - by email or by surface
mail - reception of the abstracts. Those of you who believe that their
abstracts should have already reached us, are kindly required to send a new
package in case they have not received a confirmation from us within a week
from now.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
