Background

A desirable side-effect of the NLPL cooperation is community formation, i.e. strengthening interaction and collaboration among Nordic research teams in NLP and advancing a shared level of knowledge and experience in using national e-Infrastructures for large-scale NLP research. Towards these goals, the project organizes an annual three-day winter school.

For early 2019, NLPL will hold its winter school in in the first week of February, at a mountain-side hotel (with skiing opportunities) about two hours north of Oslo. We expect to welcome several of the core developers of the DyNet framework as instructors for a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises in applications of ‘dynamic’ deep neural networks to NLP.

The winter school is subsidized by the project (with financial support from NeIC). There will be a limited number of fully funded ‘slots’ available to members of the core NLPL consortium, which each partner is free to allocate among their staff and student as they see fit. Additionally, the winter school will welcome partly self-funded participants from project partners and other Nordic NLP research centers, who will have to cover their own travel expenses to and from Oslo airport, as well as their cost of accommodation and food at the winter school hotel (the latter is expected to come to around NOK 2,500 to 3,000).
