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
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.
||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

see the on-line demonstration.
||As part of the
Conference on Computational Linguistics, DELPH-IN members organize the
International Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04)
in Geneva (Switzerland).
Reflecting the large number of high-quality presentations at the workshop,
the organizers prepare a follow-up publication as a journal special issue.

Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theory,
Stephan Oepen gives an invited overview presentation of the
LinGO Redwoods treebank

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()]; based on the LinGO Redwoods
approach, the project expects to treebank several tens of thousands of
definitions and use the analysis results for knowledge acquisition.

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.

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.
