LyS (Language in the Information Society) is an interdisciplinary research group composed of professors and researchers from the fields of Linguistics and Computer Science who have long been working in the area known as Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing and Language Engineering. In particular, in the last two years we have published work on various natural language processing technologies like syntactic parsing (includingconstituency-based and dependency-based multilanguage parsing), information retrieval, opinion mining (including on social media such as Twitter), grammar optimization or language identification.

More information about the group can be found on our website http://www.grupolys.org

Comment: 

We offer our expertise in the field of natural language processing (NLP), and are looking for projects that will integrate NLP tasks within larger frameworks using extralinguistic cues, robotics, or other technologies of interest for enhancing or applying natural language understanding or generation. We can provide collaboration both in research and in development of software and linguistic resources.

We are a small but very active research group, regularly conducting research projects funded by public calls, publishing in the top conferences and journals in the field (both on our own and in collaboration with international researchers from a wide variety of institutions), releasing open-source software products and collaborating with local technology companies.
