Background

For early 2018, NLPL will hold a winter school in conjunction with the NeIC All-Hands Meeting (AHM), to which all NLPL team members (i.e. the project staff, salaried or in-kind) will be invited.

The NeIC meeting will be held from January 29 to February 1, 2018, in the Norwegian mountain resort at Skeikampen. Probably starting after lunch on Monday, January 29, NLPL will kick off its winter school in E-Infrastructure and Scientific Computing for Nordic Natural Language Processing Research. The winter school will have a duration of two days, i.e. end before lunch on Wednesday, January 31. NLPL team members, associates at partner institutions (e.g. doctoral and post-doctoral fellows, possibly also MSc students), and other prospective users of the infrastructure will be invited to attend; NLPL partners can have their cost of participation reimbursed by the project.

The winter school will comprise different types of activities, including (a) overview talks, for example on GPU programming (with emphasis on Taito and Abel), ‘deep’ learning paradigms and toolkits, or other scientific programming and HPC techniques; (b) in-depth tutorials on parts of the NLPL infrastructure (e.g. translation, parsing, and extrinsic evaluation software, as well as corpora and embeddings) and other topics of relevance to the project (e.g. ‘containerization’); and (c) hands-on hackathons, i.e. collective programming and experimentation in specific toolkits (e.g. environments like DyNet, MPI, or CUDA). Participation in the hackathons will require preparation prior to the winter school, which NLPL partner sites will organize locally.
