I write this post from my hotel in Reykjavik. Ready to get started at LREC tomorrow. I'm looking forward to another conference experience. I don't think this city could be more contrasting to my previous conference in Sofia, Bulgaria. I'm also particularly excited as I am presenting in the main conference this year. It is a really great opportunity to share my research and I'm looking forward to that.
I haven't completed my presentation yet. But when I do, the slides will be up here. I am presenting on Thursday morning, so still time to put the finishing touches to my slides. I will be presenting on an error study of the lexical simplification pipeline which I produced a short while back. It's an interesting little side experiment which developed into some useful results. Effectively I've been able to show that the areas in the field which are least addressed are the areas which cause the most problems. A game changer - if people take notice. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the work is received. I imagine there will be a mixture of views on the work.
In terms of my PhD project, this work will feed directly into the first chapter of my thesis. It allows me to motivate work on mitigating errors throughout the lexical simplification pipeline. I have recently come to what I think is a final draft of my thesis structure. But I shall save that for another post.
