			CALL FOR PARTICIPATION 

        WORKSHOP ON MACHINE LEARING OF INFORMATION EXTRACTION

                   Antwerp, March 10, 2005 

              http://cnts.uia.ac.be/~hoste/workshop.html 


The dramatic growth of the quantity of textual information has led to
an increasing research interest in the application of machine learning
algorithms to the information extraction (IE) problem. Information
extraction systems are designed to identify predetermined relevant
information in text documents from some specific domain.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together Dutch and Flemisch
researchers in companies and universities working on the topic of
information extraction. Through the workshop, we aim to gain insight
in the state of the art in Belgium and the Netherlands and to identify
remaining IE-related problems for which ML techniques might be
appropriate.

You are cordially invited to attend this workshop.


PROGRAM
Keynote lectures by:
Claire Cardie (Cornell University, USA)
Antal van den Bosch (Tilburg University, The Netherlands)

The program includes the two keynote talks and five invited talks
relevant to machine learning of information extraction. 

The program and further information about location and registration
