We invite you to participate in the 18th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics, which will be held in Riga, Latvia. The conference will be held on May 11–13, 2011, with two days for the main conference, and a separate day for workshops. Papers are welcomed on substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of language technology.
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 (www.dmoz.org).
