For some reason email has transformed the flat conference fee for the 
Specifier conference to 315 pounds sterling. This should of course be 
slightly less at 15 (fifteen) pounds sterling.

Subject: Summer Internships in HCI & Multimodal Systems


Applications are invited from outstanding upper-level undergraduate and
graduate students for full-time summer internship positions in
human-computer interaction and multimodal systems. Funding for these
internships primarily is sponsored by the National Science Foundation,
and is part of a larger NSF project entitled ``Interactive Multimodal
Interfaces: Designing for Human Performance." Students selected will
participate in an interdisciplinary, team-oriented research project
investigating people's spoken, pen-based, and multimodal input to
interactive computer systems. One aim of this research is the design of
successful interfaces for multimodal systems and portable devices.
This work is being conducted in a new state-of-the-art laboratory
facility in the Center for Human-Computer Communication at the Oregon
Graduate Institute of Science and Technology (OGI), which is located in
the Portland metropolitan area 10-15 minutes west of the city.

Applicants with a background in computer science, cognitive science,
psychology, linguistics, or human factors are encouraged to apply, and
interests in the following areas are preferred: human-computer
interaction and user-centered design, multimodal/multimedia systems,
human communication and behavior, linguistics and natural language
processing, speech and pen technology, interactive graphics and
visualization techniques, research design and statistics. Experience
working with human subjects, scoring and analyzing language-oriented
behavior, using WAVES software, using data analysis/statistics
software, programming in C++ and X-windows, or in computer graphics
would be most relevant to the project.

To apply, submit a resume, xerox copy of course transcripts, names and
contact information for 3 references, and a brief statement of
research/career interests by March 25th to:

Gloria McCauley, Center Administrator
Center for Human-Computer Communication
