We are happy and proud to announce that both Khalil Sima'an and Jaap Kamps have been awarded VIDI subsidies for their respective projects, 'Priors for the Estimation of Probabilistic Grammars from Incomplete Natural Language Data' and 'Retrieving encoded archieval descriptons more effectively' ('README').

The 'Priors' project has a total budget of 767 kEURO of which 406 kEURO is contributed by NWO, and 65 kEURO by the CvB-UvA. Besides Khalil himself, a postdoc (3 years) and a PhD student (4 year) will be attracted to work on the project.

Details of the README project are forthcoming.

Many congratulations to Khalil and to Jaap (who is away travelling). Congratulations to the ILLC are also applicable because 2 out of 8 approved VIDI project proposals within NWO Exact Sciences go to the ILLC!
