ÚFAL RG in 2014

The main topic of the reading group is Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.

If you are interested sign up to our mailing list, or sign up by sending an empty e-mail to ufal-rg+subscribe@googlegroups.com.

Join our discussion community at Google+.

Regular meetings take place on Mondays at 16:00 in front of the room 424 at Malostranske namesti 25 in Prague

The program is here here. Feel free to add yourself.

Also, please edit program suggestions to tell us what kind of papers you are interested in and which ones you would like to tell us about.


Feel free to contact us at our @ufal.mff.cuni.cz addresses if you have some requests: Lukas Zilka (zilka@) and Ales Tamchyna (tamchyna@).
