			   Call for Papers

The Centre for Language Technology and the Speech Hearing and Language
Research Centre are pleased to announce that the Tenth Australian
International Conference on Speech Science and Technology will be held
at the Macquarie University campus in December 2004.

This year's conference includes a special workshop on the phonetics
and phonology of Australian and New Zealand English (PANZE) The aims
of the workshop are to bring together researchers who use experimental
methodology in the examination of Australian and/or New Zealand
Englishes, to discuss techniques and procedures, and to foster closer
links between individuals and departments. Workshop papers will be
published in the same proceedings as those in the main conference.

Prior to the conference the SST committee in collaboration with the
Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA) will host a four
day summer school aimed at postgraduate research students. Courses
will cover both language technology and speech topics and focus on
both theoretical and practical aspects of these fields. Details of the
summer school program can be found via the SST 2004 website.

Submissions are invited for oral and poster presentations.
Submissions should describe original contributions to spoken language,
speech science and/or technology that will be of interest to an
