Welcome to ICSLP 98

HOST

The Australian Speech Science and Technology Association (ASSTA) Inc. is proud to have been selected by the Permanent Council for the organisation of ICSLP Conference to host ICSLP ’98. The ICSLP series commenced in 1990 with an inaugural Conference in Kobe, Japan under the chairmanship of Professor Hiroya Fujisaki. This has been followed by successful Conference in Banff, Canada (1992); Yokohama, Japan (1994); and Philadelphia, USA (1996).

VENUE

The Convention Centre is located in a complex of restaurants and shops on an expansive pedestrian peninsula at the waterfront of the celebrated Sydney Harbour and only a few minutes walk or monorail ride from the city centre. Australia will be in early summer in December and there will be lots of things to see and do. You will be able to combine the conference with numerous holiday opportunities - in Sydney sample Aussie beach culture, a concert in the Opera House, explore the vast harbour, or travel further to visit the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, Kakadu, the Outback, see sheep shearing, visit our vineyards, go bushwalking, go to Tasmania where the last great unexplored wilderness still exists, help spot Thylacine, see the Southern Cross and get a clear view of the Milky Way at night. In fact why not stay for Christmas and have a BBQ on the beach for a different Christmas dinner?
