 The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is proud
 to announce an upcoming symposium entitled "Shipping Noise and Marine
 Mammals: A Forum for Science, Management and Technology" to be held 18-19
 May 2004 in Arlington, Virginia.
 NOAA is principal sponsor of this groundbreaking event, which will
 highlight state of the art research related to the effect of shipping
 noise on marine mammals.  The symposium will bring together a diverse
 group of stakeholders from the scientific community, regulatory agencies,
 and maritime industries in an explorative and collaborative forum.
 Symposium partners include NOAA Fisheries, Marine Mammal Commission, U.S.
 Navy, American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), INTERTANKO, Society for Naval
 Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME), University of Alaska Marine
 Advisory Program, and Chamber of Shipping of America.
 Attendance is FREE with advance registration via the symposium website at

Subject: Research Assistantships for Fall 2004

Speech and Signal Processing Laboratory
 Marquette University Electrical and Computer Engineering
 Graduate Research Assistantships are currently available for Fall 2004 with
 The Dr. Dolittle Project (<a  href=""; 
rel="nofollow"></a> ) in the
 Speech and Signal Processing lab at Marquette University. The fundamental
 goal of this research project is to develop a broadly useable framework for
 pattern analysis and classification of animal vocalizations, by integrating
 successful models and ideas from the field of speech processing and
 recognition into bioacoustics. Tasks include automatic vocalization
 classification and labeling, individual identification, call type
 classification, behavioral vocalization correlations, and studies of
 language acquisition and seismic infrasonic communication.  Species being
 targeted for study include agricultural animals, marine mammals, and several
 endangered species, in collaboration with researchers at a number of other
 Compensation includes tuition reimbursement as well as a monthly stipend of
 $1400 per month. Candidates should have a Bachelors or Masters degree in a
 discipline related to speech and signal processing or bioacoustics.
 The Speech and Signal Processing lab is associated with the Department of
 Electrical and Computer Engineering at Marquette University, located in
 Milwaukee, WI. Interested individuals should send a letter to:
