UPDATE and CALL FOR PARTICIPATION Tenjinno Machine Translation Competition http://www.ics.mq.edu.au/%7Etenjinno/ ** News On 6 April 2006, the first Tenjinno problem has been solved! ** Background Tenjinno is a competition held in conjunction with the 8th International Colloquium on Grammatical Inference (ICGI 2006) that combines grammatical inference with machine translation. The task is to create a machine translation system using a set of training sentences and to use the model to translate a set of test sentences. The Tenjinno competition differs from other machine translation competitions in that the data is artificial and generated from an underlying formal model. The Tenjinno machine translation competition aims to measure and improve upon the current state-of-the-art in grammatical inference. Tenjinno is the successor to the earlier Abbadingo, Gowachin and Omphalos competitions. Information on how the data is generated and ideas on how to tackle these problems can be found on the Tenjinno website together with other information: http://www.ics.mq.edu.au/%7Etenjinno/ ** Participants Tenjinno defines a problem that ranges over several fields. As such, we encourage submission from practitioners from all areas of computer science including (but not limited to): - machine learning, - natural language processing, - formal languages, - machine translation, and - bioinformatics. ** Results The results of the competition will be presented and discussed during the 8th International Colloquium on Grammatical Inference (ICGI 2006). ICGI 2006 will be the first conference in this series to be held in Asia. ** Important dates: - 31 December 2005 Competition details available - 1 January 2006 Competition begins - 1 July 2006 Competition closes - 2 July 2006 Competition winner announced - September 2006 Tenjinno session at ICGI-2006 For any comments or questions please contact the Tenjinno organisers at tenjinno_(on)_ics.mq.edu.au. - Brad Starkie - Menno van Zaanen - Dominique Estival ---------------------------- - Menno van Zaanen - Everything under the sun is in tune, - menno_(on)_ics.mq.edu.au - but the sun is eclipsed by the moon. - www.ics.mq.edu.au/%7Emenno - -Pink Floyd ---------------------------- _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
