Welcome to ASSTA

The Australasian Speech Science and Technology Association (ASSTA) is a scientific association which aims to advance the understanding of speech science and its application to speech technology in a way that is appropriate for Australia and New Zealand.

In order to fulfil these aims the Association seeks to provide significant exchange between those actively involved in speech science and technology research and practice, between this multidisciplinary body of professionals and the community in general as well as other national and international bodies having related aims.

The 18th Australasian International Conference on Speech Science and Technology was held at the Australian National University, Canberra, in December 2022. See the website for more details, or download the proceedings.

In 2019, ASSTA hosted ICPhS. This was the first time this large international conference, first held in 1932, took place in the Southern hemisphere – and only the fourth time it has been held outside of Europe.
