Helena Moniz, INESC-ID Researcher was nominated President of the EAMT and Vice-President of the IAMT
Helena Moniz, INESC-ID Researcher was nominated President of the European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) and Vice-President of the International Association for Machine Translation (IAMT).
“I am humbly grateful for such an amazing committee consider me as one of them. It is a true honour and a responsibility. I surely hope I may assist the EAMT diverse community of translators, end users of Machine Translation, NLP scientists, and industry partners. The present offers great challenges and opportunities to our community. My motto has been the balance between AI technologies and the human factor and I believe this is very much needed in such exciting times for (M)T!”, mentioned Helena Moniz.
Helena Moniz is an Assistant Professor at the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Lisbon, where she teaches Computational Linguistics, Computer Assisted Translation, and Machine Translation Systems and Post-editing.
She received a PhD in Linguistics at FLUL in cooperation with the Technical University of Lisbon (IST), in 2013. She has been working at INESC-ID/CLUL since 2000, in several national and international projects involving multidisciplinary teams of linguists, speech, and NLP scientists. Within this fruitful collaborations, she participated in 16 national and international projects.
Since 2015-, She is also the PI of a Protocol between INESC-ID and Unbabel, a translation company combining AI + post-editing, working in AI Research Projects.
She is currently the vice-coordinator of the Human Language Technologies Lab at INESC-ID and responsible for the WG3 of the COST Action Multi3Generation (CA18231).
Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango
Dates: November 18-19, 2021
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
