PARADISEC is a consortium of three universities: the Universities of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and the Australian National University. Operational functions are distributed across the participating campuses.
PARADISEC is directed by a Steering Committee of representatives from these three universities, with Dr Nick Thieberger as the PARADISEC Director, and Prof Linda Barwick as the Sydney Director.
At the University of Sydney PARADISEC is hosted by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, our University of Melbourne base is in the School of Languages and Linguistics, and at the Australian National University PARADISEC is hosted by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific.
Our distributed project operations have been made possible by the high bandwidth dedicated research and education network AARNet and the data storage facility of the Research Data Storage Infrastructure. We archive our audio data to international standards and formats for digital preservation using the Dobbin Audio Archiving system.
Our information leaflet is available to download in English, French, Simplified Chinese, Bahasa Indonesian, Tok Pisin, Japanese and Bislama.
