The Research Group in Computational Linguistics was founded in 1998 as part of the School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications and since 2005 it has been a member of the Research Institute of Information and Language Processing. The group is led by Prof. Ruslan Mitkov and is pursuing active research in a wide variety of topics in computational linguistics. The group has established an international reputation which can be seen through our projects and papers.
The results from the Research Assessment Exercise announced on 17 December 2008 confirm the Research Group in Computational Linguistics as one of the top performers in UK research. The research output of the group has been rated as internationally leading, internationally excellent and internationally recognised.
