SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *************************************************** OMPHALOS CONTEXT-FREE LANGUAGE LEARNING COMPETITION *************************************************** http://www.irisa.fr/Omphalos/ --------------------------------------------------- Update ------ The Omphalos Context-free Language Learning competition is still running and has been quite succesful so far. Five of the first six problems have been solved, so do not think that it is an impossible task. We have added four new problems for everybody to try and solve. Go ahead and try your best. Note that everybody can participate, not only people from the ICGI community or grammatical inference researchers. Intro ----- Omphalos is the first context-free language learning competition that forms part of ICGI-2004 (See http://iit.demokritos.gr/icgi04/). The task is to infer a model of a context-free language from unstructured examples (both positive and negative) and to use that model to label a set of test sentences as being either in or out of the language. The Competition Task -------------------- We have generated some context-free grammars. For each grammar we have labeled a set of sentences indicating whether or not those sentences can be generated from that grammar. The goal of the competition is to infer a model of each language (such as a grammar) using the training data. You then need to tag new sentences, indicating whether the sentences are in the language or not. Important Dates --------------- February 15th 2004 Competition begins October 1st 2004 Competition closes October 11th 2004 Competition winner announced October 11th-13th 2004 Omphalos session at ICGI-2004 More Information ---------------- For more information, check the website: http://www.irisa.fr/Omphalos/ or contact the organizers at: omphalos_(on)_irisa.fr Omphalos is being organized and administered by: Brad Starkie, François Coste, and Menno van Zaanen - Menno van Zaanen - mvzaanen_(on)_uvt.nl http://ilk.uvt.nl/%7Emvzaanen
