Toward Modelling the Development of Speech Planning in Production Workshop

1 August 2019 - 2 August 2019

Models of human speech production developed over the past few decades have been shaped by a number of sources of information, including linguistic theory, observational studies and experimental studies of both typical and atypical adult speakers. But few studies have examined the developmental course of changes in the speech production process in children who are learning to talk.

The goal of this workshop is therefore to bring together researchers working on models of speech production planning to explore methods suitable for testing hypotheses about the role of higher-level structure in these processes in both adults and children aged 2-12, with special focus on speech (and gestural) planning mechanisms during the course of language development.

This workshop is a satellite event of the 19th International Congress of the Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS) which will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 5 – 9 August 2019.


  • Bryan Gick  (University of British Columbia)
  • Núria Esteve-Gibert  (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya)
  • Lucie Ménard  (Université du Québec à Montréal)
  • Aditi Lahiri  (University of Oxford)

Global Alumni Impact Series – Seoul

2 August 2019

Beer with the Boss – Gangnam Style

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a CEO? How do they get the confidence, grit, interpersonal skills and vision to make the tough decisions? Or are you planning your next career move and curious about what opportunities are out there?

Join us for our annual Global Alumni Impact Series in Seoul where you can ask those questions and more to senior alumni leaders in a fast-paced speed-networking event.

Beer with the Boss is an exciting professional networking event for #mqalumni where you can connect with senior alumni with impressive job titles and even more impressive career journeys.

Listen to their career stories, hear their tips and tricks of the trade and ask any questions you might have, all while building your professional network with peers and leaders.

The concept for Beer with the Boss is simple: relax, grab a drink (or two) and speed network with a boss in a group. Each session will be timed to 15 minutes, a bell will ring, and you will move onto the next boss.

This event is proudly sponsored by Macquarie University. Canapés and drinks will be provided.

So what are you waiting for? Bring your business cards and prepare one or two questions you might want to ask a boss!

Space is limited, so register before 26 July to secure your spot.
