The GATE training course will be held from 17-21 June 2019 at the University of Sheffield, UK. Early bird registration is available at a reduced rate before 1 May.
This event will follow a similar format to that of the 2018 course, with one track Monday to Thursday, and two parallel tracks on Friday, all delivered by the GATE development team. For more information about the schedule, course materials, travel, accommodation, local information etc. please see the FIG participants wiki.
The focus will be on mining text and social media content with GATE. Many of the hands on exercises will be focused on analysing news articles, tweets, and other textual content.
The planned schedule is as follows (NOTE: may still be subject to timetabling changes).
Single track from Monday to Thursday (9am - 5pm):
On Friday, there is a choice of modules (9am - 5pm):
Please note that these two modules are run in parallel, so you can only attend one of them. You must state on the booking form which module you would like to follow on Friday. Note that you will be expected to have some programming experience and knowledge of Java to follow Module 5 on the Friday. No particular expertise is needed for Module 6.
