The project "Above and Beyond Speech, Language and Music: A Virtual Lab for Human Communication Science (HCS vLab)" will bring together a number of existing tools and datasets in a "virtual lab" that can be used by researchers in the broadly named field of human communication sciences, which brings together computer scientists, linguists, psychologists, engineers, forensic scientists and many more. The project builds on the group's expertise and track record in eResearch as well as the related specific subfields of human communication sciences, such as ARC SRi eResearch grants, the ARC Thinking Systems grant, the ARC LIEF grant, the ARC Research Network HCSNet, various ANDS grants, etc. Congratulations to the team!
