Each nomination must touch on two of the following broad areas (but need not be framed as such in the paper): phonetic variation, spoken word recognition, speech perception, memory, attention, or related areas in social-network theory or social psychology.
And, we are changing this so we can all post instead of sending everything to me to post:
To nominate a paper, you must POST: (1) the citation, (2) a “Why it is inspiring” statement (no longer than 4 sentences), and (3) a "something to think about" statement (no longer than 4 sentences).
This is meant to be a place to be a forum for sharing ideas, so please don't be shy!
Coming back to our first year ... we are now in reading mode, reading the 5 nominated papers, and voting on September 21. We will celebrate with dinner on Oct. 1! Yeah!
