The round table "Time and Language", organized by Tommaso Caselli (VUA, Amsterdam) and Rachele Sprugnoli (DH-FBK), will be held in Genoa on Thursday October 30 as part of "Festival della Scienza".
The paper "An Analysis of Causality between Events and its Relation to Temporal Information" by Paramita Mirza and Sara Tonelli has been accepted for oral presentation at the 25th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (Coling 2014).
We are happy to announce that the first part of the Training Data for the EVENTI task is now available for download. For instructions go to https://sites.google.com/site/eventievalita2014/data-tools
In addition, also the first version of our task guidelines is online: https://sites.google.com/site/eventievalita2014/file-cabinet
Our PhD student Stefano Menini has been awarded a Google grant to attend the 4th Lisbon Machine Learning School. Competition was tough and only 14% of the applications got funded. Congratulations!
