Description and Objectives
The Parsing & Semantics research area at Xerox Research Centre Europe
(XRCE) is currently looking for an experienced researcher in statistical natural language processing (NLP), with a deep understanding of machine learning and/or information extraction (e.g. event extraction). The ideal candidate would also have experience or knowledge of textual entailment, knowledge representation, and combining machine learning with expert knowledge. The applicant should have good coding skills (e.g. Java programming), with the ability to develop research prototypes and pilots.
CALL FOR PAPERS - TPAMI Special Issue on “Higher Order Graphical Models in Computer Vision: Modelling, Inference & Learning”
This special issue invites paper submissions addressing the issues of modelling, inference, and learning in models with higher-order terms and global constraints. We also welcome survey and overview papers in these general areas.
The call for papers is available at:
The timeline is as follows:
Salary: up to £27,900 per annum
Closing date: 22 March 2013
The ECML-PKDD 2013 Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day tutorials to be held on the first and last days of the conference, which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic from September 23th to 27th, 2013.
The Finnish Center of Excellence in Computational Inference Research (COIN), a joint research center of Aalto University and University of Helsinki, is now seeking postdoctoral researchers to join us in developing and applying new methods of machine learning and probabilistic modeling, together with professors Samuel Kaski and Petri Myllymäki, with opportunities for collaboration with other professors at COIN. There are opportunities for both methods development and theoretical work, and interdisciplinary applications.
