Poster Abstracts

AusTalk and Alveo Session, Thursday 6th 1:20-2:20 – All welcome

The AusTalk corpus (https://austalk.edu.au), the largest modern dataset of audio-visual Australian English, is available to researchers through Alveo (https://alveo.edu.au/). To improve access to this important resource, we are holding a special session at SST 2018. We invite anyone with an interest in accessing or using AusTalk to participate in the session and to provide input into the next stage of development. We particularly would like to hear from researchers who have tried using AusTalk and who have experienced difficulties.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at the Coogee Bay Hotel, a short bus ride from the city. Apart from the conference reception and banquet, many social activities are possible nearby e.g. bushwalks, snorkelling, surfing.

Special event: Mal Webb puts the vocal apparatus through its paces (sneak preview).
