Carlos Ramisch's picture Cover of 'Multiword Expressions Acquisition' book by Carlos Ramisch

I am an assistant professor (maître de conférences) at the computer science department of Aix Marseille University in France. In addition to teaching, I also do research in computational linguistics/natural language processing at the TALEP team of LIS (previously called LIF). From Sep 2019 to Aug 2020 I am a visiting CNRS researcher (délégation) at the MELODI team of IRIT in Toulouse.

I am passionate about multiword expressions (MWEs) and I try to build natural language processing systems that take them into account. I have created and maintain, with the help of brilliant colleagues like Silvio Cordeiro, the mwetoolkit: a useful tool for discovering and indentifying MWEs in corpora. I have written a book on MWE processing, available as printed or e-Book on Springer Link. (errata). I am also interested in dependency parsing, lexical semantics, semantic analysis, distributional semantic models, corpus annotation, multilingualism in NLP, multilingual/cross-lingual methods, information extraction, unsupervised and semi-supervised methods, machine learning and neural models and representations for NLP.

I am deeply involved in the PARSEME community, especially in the organisation of the shared tasks in 2017, 2018 and 2020, on verbal MWE identification.

I obtained my PhD (2009-2012) from the University of Grenoble (France) under the supervision of Christian Boitet and at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) under the supervision of Aline Villavicencio. I have a Bachelor's degree from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul and a Master's degree from ENSIMAG at Grenoble INP.

I am/was co-chair and organiser of the 2010, 2011, 2013, 2017, 2018 and 2020 editions of the workshop on multiword expressions, area chair of *SEM 2012 and NAACL 2019, PC chair of PROPOR 2018, guest editor of the ACM TSLP special issue on MWEs, and editor of LSP's series on Phraseology and Multiword Expressions (PMWE). I am/was involved in the following funded projects:
