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

I am currently an assistant professor (maître de conférences) at the computer science department of Aix-Marseille University. In addition to teaching, I also do research in computational linguistics at the TALEP team of LIS (previously called LIF).

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 other topics such as dependency parsing, lexical semantics, semantic analysis, distributional semantic models, corpus annotation, multilingualism in NLP, multilingual systems, and neural models and representations for NLP.

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 a co-chair of PROPOR 2018 and LAW-MWE-CxG 2018. I was a co-chair of the 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2017 editions of the workshop on multiword expressions, area chair for MWEs of *SEM 2012, and guest editor of the ACM TSLP special issue on MWEs. I am deeply involved in the organisation of the PARSEME shared task on verbal MWE identification. I am currently involved in the following funded projects:
