Subject Re: next UIMA workshop?
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2014 13:44:08 GMT
Hi all, I have just posted the (more or less) final CFP on uima-user and 

Feel free to distribute the CFP to anybody you think would be 
interested.  While this has been merged with a different workshop and 
thus has a somewhat wider scope than just UIMA, I still view this as a 
followup to the the UIMA workshop at GSCL and would hope to have 
similarly interesting contributions from the UIMA community.

If you are a PC member, or willing to be one, please contact me off-list 
with the email address and affiliation that you would like me to use for 
this purpose.

Finally, despite the fact that UIMA does not appear in the title 
anymore, would it be possible to have an announcement on the UIMA web page?
