MSc and PhD Studentships in Interactive Information Discovery and Delivery (I2D2)
NICTA Victoria Research Laboratory, University of Melbourne, Australia
National ICT Australia (NICTA) is Australia's Centre of Excellence in
Information and Communication Technology. The NICTA Interactive Information
Discovery and Delivery Project is based in the Department of Computer Science
and Software Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
The aim of the I2D2 project is to explore how intelligent linguistic and
geospatial analysis of queries and content can enhance the ability of a basic
search engine to fullfill a user's information need. This project will involve
the development of scalable and robust natural language processing, knowledge
discovery, and information presentation technologies for multimodal data on a
variety of devices.
This project has funding for Masters and PhD scholarships in the following core
- geospatial and temporal expression recognition and resolution
- geospatial and temporal information retrieval and filtering
- interactive question-biased multi-document summarisation
- rhetorical structure, document structure and layout
- natural interaction, dialogue, speech, multimodality, user modelling
- statistical machine learning as applied to natural language processing
- high performance computing for large-scale information retrieval
- language technology integration with mobile computing devices
Project participants include: Timothy Baldwin, James Bailey, Steven Bird,
Lawrence Cavedon, Baden Hughes, Alistair Moffat, Nicola Stokes, Peter Stuckey,
and Egemen Tanin.
Stipends of up to AUD $24,000 per annum (tax free) are available for
high-achieving students commencing a Masters by research or a PhD. In some
cases a fee remission scholarship may be offered to overseas students. For
students who successfully obtain other scholarships, such as the Australian
Postgraduate Award (APA), NICTA funded top-up scholarships may be available.
Applications for immediate commencement, or commencement by 31 January 2006, may
be made at any time up to the closing date of 31 October 2005.
