Hi folks,

We have a request for information on training language models
for parse selection in Lisbon.  This sounds more like a presentation topic
than a discussion topic to me.  Is anyone involved in that
work interested in making a presentation?

Dear Emily,
many thanks for the infos and schedule.
I was wondering whether one of the scheduled
discussions or presentations will contain something
about training language models. It would be very useful
(probably not only to us) to learn more about available
tools for (re)training parse selection.
Best wishes, Anette
