Our students receive very attractive  scholarships and win important  awards.

The group conducts research in natural language processing (NLP) and related fields of artificial intelligence and soft computing. Our current work includes:

We organize the annual series of international conferences CICLing, participate in the organization of the international conferences MICAI, COMIA, and a number of other conferences and journals (see e.g. here). We wrote a book on Computational Linguistics (in English) and another book on Natural Language Processing (in Spanish). Many of our publications (below) can be downloaded from this page and from the personal pages of the members of the group. Here is an older version of this page.
