Choosing a major can be scary. It’s not a simple either/or decision, like choosing a car
with either stick shift or automatic. It means a commitment of several years and,
in most cases, a great amount of money. Although it’s a personal decision, your friends

The vast majority of work on word senses has relied on predeﬁned sense inventories and an annotation schema where each word instance is tagged with the best ﬁtting sense. This paper examines the case for a graded notion of word meaning in two experiments, one which uses WordNet senses in a graded fashion, contrasted with the “winner takes all” annotation, and one which asks annotators to judge the similarity of two usages.
Balanced and coordinated advances within these research areas will pave
the way to meeting the 2020 vision target of a fivefold increase in renewable
resource use. Figures 11A to 11D detail goals for these priority research areas.
Cost of materials surfaced many times as a major issue during the steering

Early breast cancer is subdivided into two major categories, in situ disease,
mainly in the form of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and invasive cancer.
Both are heterogeneous processes with very variable appearances, biology
and clinical behaviour.
Over recent years there have been important developments in the
investigation and management of breast cancer including new types of
chemotherapy, and biological and hormonal agents. There is some evidence
of practice variation across the country and of inconsistent availability of
certain treatments and procedures.
The aim is to strengthen clinical research in Europe in a number of areas with unmet medical
needs. Specific actions under clinical trials listed in this work programme (especially under
investigator-driven clinical trials) will have a major European added value into translating
research to clinical practice. The objective is increasing therapeutic options for patients,
stimulating the implementation of best practice in all Member States (MS) and in establishing
the basis for a coherent programme addressing the issue of personalized medicine and
improved therapeutic outcomes.
