FEB-06 A group of ten developers of DELPH-IN resources meets for a focussed Developers Meeting in Jerez (Spain). Among the main results of the meeting are the merging of the two historic PET branches, the design for stand-alone FSPP use and integration of conflicting tokenization views into HoG, as well as initial results on harmonizing the configuration of PET and the LKB.
OCT-05 The EPSRC-funded SciBorg project starts at the University of Cambridge, using integrated deep and shallow techniques in processing scientific text, building on the work on RMRS that was begun on the Deep-Thought Project.
OCT-05 NTT (in the person of Francis Bond) hosts the fourth workshop of the A Contrastive Study of Korean and Japanese Syntax and Semantics: Feasibility of Porting and Cross-Development of Grammars between Two Different Multilingual Processing Systems at NTT Communications Research Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan. At this workshop Jong-Bok Kim announces the offical release of the Korean Resource Grammar.
OCT-05 As part of the Second International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP-05), DELPH-IN members organize the 6th International Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-2005) in Jeju (Korea). At the same conference, John Carroll and Stephan Oepen receive the IJCNLP Best Paper award for their joint work on the LOGON generation component. Their paper High-Efficiency Realization for a Wide-Coverage Unification Grammar reviews a series of novel algorithmic contributions to chart generation, defines a procedure for selective enumeration of n-best results, and presents an in-depth empirical evaluation.
OCT-05 Jong-Bok Kim hosts the third workshop of the A Contrastive Study of Korean and Japanese Syntax and Semantics: Feasibility of Porting and Cross-Development of Grammars between Two Different Multilingual Processing Systems in Seoul, Korea, bringing together researchers from both HPSG and LFG.
AUG-05 The inaugural DELPH-IN meeting is held after HPSG-2005 in Lisbon, Portugal. Almost 40 participants attended the 3 day event.
MAY-05 A meeting to discuss current work on RMRS was held at the University of Edinburgh.
OCT-04 The Deep-Thought Consortium holds its Final Project Review in Lido di Camaiore (Italy) and receives high acclaim for its Heart of Gold integration and innovative applications; the project has used and improved DELPH-IN resources and prepares to contribute additional technology to the open-source repository. Following the review, the consortium organizes a Roadmap Workshop on future applications of hybrid text understanding with some 20 participants from both academia and industry.
SEP-04 As part of an on-going effort to harmonize distribution and documentation of DELPH-IN resources, the infrastructure relocates to a new server provided by the Oslo University MT Research Group. New services go on-line, including a unified mailing list manager, concise web access statistics, and a wiki forum for collaborative publishing.
SEP-04 The EU-funded Deep-Thought Consortium (coordinated at Saarland University by Hans Uszkoreit and Melanie Siegel), completes the integration of its Heart of Gold core architecture framework, an ensemble of ‘shallow’ and ‘deep’ NLP engines for (currently) six major languages; see the on-line demonstration.
AUG-04 As part of the 20th International Conference on Computational Linguistics, DELPH-IN members organize the 5th International Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04) in Geneva (Switzerland). Reflecting the large number of high-quality presentations at the workshop.
AUG-04 DELPH-IN members organize a workshop on Semantics in Grammar Engineering in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG-2004) in Leuven (Belgium).
SEP-03 As part of the Second International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theory, Stephan Oepen gives an invited overview presentation of the LinGO Redwoods treebank initiative: Treebanks versus Linguistic Theory. --- Anyone Need Grammars?
AUG-03 DELPH-IN members organize the International Workshop on Multilingual Grammar Engineering during the European Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information 2003 in Vienna (Austria).
JUL-03 NTT Communications Research Laboratories launches a project on parsing Japanese dictionary definitions using the DELPH-IN JaCY grammar in conjunction with the LKB, PET, and [incr tsdb()]; inspired by the LinGO Redwoods approach, the project expects to treebank several tens of thousands of definitions and use the analysis results for knowledge acquisition.
JAN-03 The Norwegian LOGON Consortium, a machine translation effort funded by the Norwegian government and (proportional to capita) twice the size of Verbmobil starts a four-year grant; LOGON has decided to use MRS for meaning representation and the LKB and LinGO ERG for transfer and generation.
OCT-02 The EU-funded IST consortium Deep-Thought starts a two-year grant for research into the use of deep processing in innovative information extraction, email management, and creative authoring applications.
SEP-02 Edinburgh and Stanford Universities start a joint three-year grant on Robust Semantic Interpretation (ROSIE), using the LKB, LinGO ERG, and Reedwoods treebank for research on the integration of discourse-level modelling and stochastic and active learning approaches to disambiguation.
AUG-02 Hans Uszkoreit presents an invited presentation on DELPH-IN research and resources to the 19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics in Taipei (Taiwain).
