Just got notice of acceptance to the Saturday-morning LSA (Linguistic Society of America) poster session for "Speech rate, rate-matching, and intelligibility: Evidence from cochlear implant users" in Austin in January.

And also IU's streamlined online IRB process -- less than two weeks from starting the application to approval.
