Seeking a letter of support from research institutions

Houcemeddine A. Turki
Dear all,
I thank you for your efforts. I am honoured to inform you that we are managing to launch a research unit dealing with Data Science research in Tunisia. This research unit is named "Data Engineering and Semantics". It belongs to Computer Science and Communications Department, Faculty of Sciences of Sfax, University of Sfax. The group will be led by Dr. Mohamed BEN AOUICHA (https://scholar.google.ca/citations?user=XPVUu-gAAAAJ&hl=fr). He was the person behind the project of University of Sfax about the use of Wikipedia and Wiktionary in semantic technologies, particularly semantic similarity measures. As explained in my previous emails, we need the research unit to have Wikimedia Researchers in the University of Sfax affiliated to an official research structure. The main goal of the unit is to promote and monitor research efforts about Data Engineering and Semantic Technologies in the University of Sfax. Data Enginering and Semantic Technology researches are needed to ameliorate the usage and processing of knowledge bases including wikis. Effectively, we will work in this unit to develop tools to ameliorate linked data quality of Wikidata and to use Wikidata for a variety of purposes including clinical decision support, Natural Language Processing and Education. We will also analyze the output of wikis, identify deficiencies and work to solve them. However, this will not be possible without several letters of support from several institutions. I ask if your research institution can send us a letter of support so that we can have the approval of the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education to create our new research unit.
Yours Sincerely,
