Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

FYI: 22nd International Conference On Machine Learning

Author: Codrina Lauth

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

FYI Body: Call for Proposals for Workshops and Tutorials

The 22nd International Conference On Machine Learning
(ICML 2005)
August 7-11, 2005, Bonn, Germany

The ICML 2005 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops and tutorials to be held at the 22nd International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML 2005). ICML 2005 will be co-located with ILP 2005 (15th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, August 10-13) and will closely follow IJCAI 2005 (19th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Edinburgh, July 30 - August 5).

The ICML 2005 workshops and tutorials will be held on August 7 and 11.

Workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic in machine learning. Workshops can concentrate on emerging research topics, but can also be devoted to application issues, or to questions concerning economic and social aspects of machine learning. Proposals that aim at a cross-fertilization between machine learning and one of the topics of the co-located conferences are particularly welcome.

Tutorials should provide an introduction and/or a review of the state-of-the-art of a topic that is of interest to attendants of a machine learning conference. These could be on particular research topics within the two fields, but could also be on topics from other research fields if the proposal makes clear why this is considered to be an important topic for researchers from other areas. A tutorial must be broad enough to cover a research area in which there is a significant publication activity in the community. Presentations that focus on the presenters' own research results or commercial presentations are not eligible.

For practical information on the workshops and tutorials, details on the submission procedure, and important deadlines, refer to the detailed calls for workshops and tutorials that are available at
