CALL FOR PARTICIPATION WORKSHOP ON MACHINE LEARNING OF INFORMATION EXTRACTION Antwerp, March 10, 2005 http://cnts.uia.ac.be/%7Ehoste/workshop.html The dramatic growth of the quantity of textual information has led to an increasing research interest in the application of machine learning algorithms to the information extraction (IE) problem. Information extraction systems are designed to identify predetermined relevant information in text documents from some specific domain. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together Dutch and Flemisch researchers in companies and universities working on the topic of information extraction. Through the workshop, we aim to gain insight in the state of the art in Belgium and the Netherlands and to identify remaining IE-related problems for which ML techniques might be appropriate. You are cordially invited to attend this workshop. PROGRAM Keynote lectures by: Claire Cardie (Cornell University, USA) Antal van den Bosch (Tilburg University, The Netherlands) The program includes the two keynote talks and five invited talks relevant to machine learning of information extraction. The program and further information about location and registration can be viewed at the conference website: http://cnts.uia.ac.be/%7Ehoste/workshop.html REGISTRATION The registration fee is 25 Euro. Given a limited number of seats, we kindly ask you to preregister if you plan to participate.
