We would like to advertize the opening of positions for different tenure research positions at the INRIA, France. Statistical learning is one of the eligible topics. This is a nationwide campaign.
Two INRIA research groups located in Lille are particularly interested in applicants in statistical learning:
- SequeL: http://sequel.lille.inria.fr, contact: philippe.preux(at)inria.fr and remi.munos(at)inria.fr
- Mostrare: http://mostrare.inria.lille.fr, contact: remi.gilleron(at)inria.fr
Other groups may be interested in other locations in France.
XRCE (Xerox Research Centre Europe, Grenoble, France) is opening two

Second Pascal Challenge on
Large Scale Hierarchical Text classification
Web site: http://lshtc.iit.demokritos.gr/
Following a successful first edition, we are pleased to announce the 2nd
edition of the Large Scale Hierarchical Text Classification (LSHTC) Pascal
Challenge. The LSHTC Challenge is a hierarchical text classification
competition, using large datasets. This year’s challenge will increase the
scale and the difficulty of the task, using data from Wikipedia
(www.wikipedia.org), in addition to the ODP Web directory data
Radboud University Nijmegen has an opening for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Computer Science (1,0 fte).

Learning Data Representations or Similarity Measures:
The UTL Challenge
Teleconference presentation, by Isabelle Guyon
Thursday January 20, 2011, 8 am PT, 11 am ET, 5 pm CET
Participation instructions http://www.afia-france.org/tiki-index.php?page=GroupeDeLecture110120IG (please review them in advance)
Is it possible to LEARN from unlabeled data Representations of Similarity Measures for use in supervised learning tasks? The Unsupervised and Transfer Learning challenge offers an opportunity to explore this problem of fundamental and practical interest.
The "Human Language Technologies" Research Unit of Bruno Kessler Foundation
(FBK) is seeking candidates for three research internship positions in the following
- Statistical Machine Translation
- Automatic Speech Recognition
- Software development for NLP
The internship are intended to provide a strong theoretical and experimental background
to graduate students interested in applying for a PhD scholarship to start in June 2011.
Requirements, salary, and application procedure are specified in
Aalto University School of Science (Helsinki, Finland)
invites applications for:
THREE TENURE TRACK OR TENURED POSITIONS IN INFORMATION AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
Aalto University (http://aalto.fi/en/) is a new university created in
2010 from the merger of the Helsinki University of Technology TKK, the
Helsinki School of Economics, and the University of Art and Design
Helsinki. The University's cornerstones are its strengths in education
and research, with 20,000 basic degree and graduate students, and a
staff of 4,500 of which 300 are professors.

Call For Papers
The European Conference on "Machine Learning" and "Principles and Practice
The Unsupervised and Transfer Learning Challenge has started, with $6000 in prizes, free registrations and travel grants.
==> PHASE 1: UNSUPERVISED LEARNING CHALLENGE <==
Do you believe that it is possible to LEARN from unlabeled data Representations of Similarity Measures that will then fare well in supervised learning tasks?
Now is your chance to prove it: you have 50 days to work on 5 unsupervised learning task from large real world databases. See: http://clopinet.com/ul.
There will be publication opportunities at ICML, IJCNN, and in JMLR W&CP.
