BioNLP'09 Shared Task on Event Extraction was organized based on the GENIA event-annotated corpus. Among the 42 teams who registered to participate, 24 teams submitted their final results. The workshop to discuss the achievements from the event was held in UColorado in conjunction with BioNLP NAACL-HLT 2009 workshop.
Feb 12-13, 2008
T-Fant 2, the theme of which is "Machine Learning and Natural language Processing", takes place on Feb 12 and 13. The program is available at here. Nine speakers, with four speakers of our lab, are invited to give talks.
March 11-13, 2007
The forum is organized by aNT (advanced NLP and Text Mining) to present the research results of the first year and exchange ideas with on-going projects outside.
May 31-June 1, 2006
The workshop is organized in every 18 months alternately in Japan and Germany. Prof.Tsujii is coordinator of the Japanese side. The workshop was at Univ. of Tokyo this time.
March 20-21, 2006
We invited researchers in Information Technology who had been successfully applying their research results to life science and those in biomedical fields who have been developing new Information-based approaches in biomedical fields. We are pleased to say that the aim of the workshop, i.e. bringing together researchers from different areas allowing exchange of ideas was successfully achieved and that we enjoyed alive and constructive discussion at the workshop. This workshop took place in Manchester, UK and attracted 25 participants.
