Have you come across any interesting URLs? Is there a classic book or  journal in your area of research? Are you aware of useful software or  speech data?  If so, please send your contribution to me at:
roberto@ee.uwa.edu.au
Contributions should contain a title,  reference and one paragraph description of the resource.

And, of course, ASSTA's reference page:
