Persistence and Control during Recognition of Speech in Noise

With the paint barely dry in LSC’s new home in HJ Patterson Hall, Winter Storm 2017 showed what is possible when an engaged grassroots community is combined with a space that is designed for collaboration.

The 9th annual Winter Storm will be a great opportunity to meet, collaborate with, and learn from fellow language scientists. The workshop will feature sessions on career development, outreach and research communication, and technical skills, as well as faculty talks, interdisciplinary research group discussions, and social activities. The last day (January 20) will be a special Day of Action, devoted to crafting matterials to influence policymakers at all levels, and inform the general public. 

The house party location is 2 miles away from campus.  We call for volunteers for carpooling on the 22nd, and if you need a ride, please let the Winter Storm Committee know!  Dinner is provided, and please bring something to drink.
