Call for Participation TiCC/SIKS Symposium on Language Modelling On 7 December 2011 the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication organizes a symposium on language modelling on the occasion of the Ph.D. thesis defense of Herman Stehouwer later that day. Language modelling has grown to be a pervasive technology in various information processing fields where the matching and ranking of linguistic objects such as documents, user profiles, and questions and answers is based on similarity of the text contained in them. The goal of the symposium is to provide an overview of different approaches in language modelling, exhibiting the large variety of work in this area. There will be talks by Colin de la Higuera, Antal van den Bosch, and Louis ten Bosch; Herman Stehouwer will additionally present the work described in his thesis.
