July 8, 2002

---------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------

Held at ICML-2002, The Nineteenth International Conference on Machine Learning, Sydney, Australia

Call for papers (expired) on the following topics was open till April 22, 2002.

Workshop Schedule, with the list of accepted papers are available on the Web. ----------------------------------------

Topics of interest

Addressing the above issues requires an awareness of the research achievements in various research and cross-disciplinary research efforts. In order to cover the essential areas of research we invite papers in:

Workshop schedule

The workshop consists of invited talks, presentation of refereed papers, and discussions. We hope that the program will stimulate future collaboration among researchers on text mining problems.



Attendance is not limited to the paper authors. We strongly encourage interested researchers from related areas to attend the workshop. The main goal of the Workshop is to bring together researchers working in the text-related machine learning issues. One of the goals for the Workshop is to provide an opportunity for presenting research work which, by its text specific focus, would not fit well the main conference program but would be of interest to researchers working in the area. This include related fields like Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, Text Extraction, and similar.

Past events

We feel that the continuity of meeting and exchanging ideas is essential for effective promotion and development of this research area.
