Meetings

Members of WING are kept apprised of events in our group through mailing lists. Generally, there is one mailing list per group activity type. External visitors are welcomed to join our mailing lists. A full listing of our mailing lists are available here. For old postings, you can refer to our (defunct) local installation of mailman.

Google Calendar of Events

Each WING member should add conference deadlines and other events to the calendar. This goes for SIG managers as well. Let’s endeavor to keep the calendar useful for everyone.

WING News

Probably the best way to learn about the progress of the group is to subscribe to our quarterly newsletter WING News. We plan to send out one email per quarter to notify our friends and affiliates of progress of our group in terms of publications, tools, corpora and demos. It’s a very easy way to get progress notes from us. Join the WING News mailing list.

WING’s Reading Group

WING hosts a weekly reading group for papers related to different topics related to NLP, IR and other aligned topics. This is a public group that often also serves our graduate lab rotation group. Students take turns to present relevant papers nominated by the respective groups. Details are on the reading group’s Slack workspace (cs6101.slack.com). The reading group content is archived to Min’s YouTube channel and carries its own webpage per semester.

WING’s NLP Seminar

Our group will be running our first NLP seminar in 2021 summer, tentatively from 20th May to 20th July (8 weeks). Invited speakers will talk about the latest breakthrough in their research. Find more information at https://wing-nus.github.io/nlp-seminar/

WING Group Meetings

We have biweekly group meetings to keep us all aware of each other’s research. The aim of these meetings is to give each other an idea of what our expertise is and to help us think critically of our own work. Typically the group meeting lasts for about 1 1/2 hours: brief updates by a particular subgroup within WING, and the remainder for presentations or detailed updates, or paper reviewing. Meetings are announced through Slack and posted on the shared WING Events calendar. Time limits on student updates will be observed so that we can finish the group meetings in a timely fashion. Meetings are usually held in Meeting Room 6 (AS6 05-10).
