This package contains the OCaml interface to Link Grammar. It enables Ocaml applications to use Link Grammar to parse English sentences. For more information on Link Grammar refer http://www.link.cs.cmu.edu/link/ (Link Grammar is available as a free download). Download http://ramamurthy.ramu.googlepages.com/ocamllinkgrammar The package contains: * README.txt * linkgrammar.mli (module interface) * linkgrammar.ml (module implementation) * linkgrammar.c (OCaml interface to linkgrammar C-API) * utApi.ml (API test) * utBatch.ml (API test - Parse sentences from a file) Example "Janet, who is an expert on dogs, helped me choose one" Parse Tree: S NP NP Janet , SBAR WHNP who S VP is NP an expert PP on NP dogs VP helped NP me VP choose NP one

PHD POSITION: FORMAL VERIFICATION OF EPIDEMIC PROTOCOLS AND DISTRIBUTED VERIFICATION METHODS ============================================================================================ The Theoretical Computer Science Group at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam seeks a PhD student for four years on a research project devoted to Formal Verification of Epidemic Protocols and Distributed Verification Methods Starting date of this PhD position: as soon as possible. The project ----------- The aim of the project is to develop techniques and tools for distributed verification, and to apply formal verification techniques in the design and analysis of epidemic protocols. The distributed verification track will focus on parallel algorithms for minimizing state spaces modulo some behavioral equivalence, and model checking. The DAS-3 supercomputer, which will become operational this Summer, will serve as an experimentation platform. Epidemic protocols multicast data in a peer-to-peer network similar to the way a disease spreads. The analysis of epidemic protocols should (1) provide further experience with applying formal verification methods to communication protocols, and with applying such methods in the design process, (2) result in improved versions of epidemic protocols, (3) lead to a systematic approach to analyze epidemic protocols, and (4) provide case studies for the distributed verification track. For more detailed information on the project, see http://www.cs.vu.nl/~wanf/epidis.txt This project is a collaboration between three research groups at the VU: Theoretical Computer Science (Wan Fokkink), Distributed Systems (Maarten van Steen, Andy Tanenbaum), and Parallel Computing (Henri Bal). For more information on the involved research groups, see http://www.cs.vu.nl/~tcs http://www.cs.vu.nl/cs/index-en.html Qualifications -------------- Candidates should have completed their studies in computer science or a closely related area. Experience with distributed systems, a good theoretical background (algorithmics, formal methods), and an open attitude to applications are considered advantages. You should enjoy working in an internationally oriented research environment. Communicative skills and the ability to work in a team are important. Information and application --------------------------- For further information about this position please contact: Prof.dr. Wan Fokkink, firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. +31 (0)20 5987735 You are invited to send an application by email to the above email address no later than June 29, 2006. Your application should consist of a cover letter, a curriculum vitae (including detailed information regarding your academic degree, and possibly a list of publications), and the names and addresses of two references.
