Research Group on Implementation of Language-Driven Software and Applications

Antonio Pareja-Lora

Antonio Pareja-Lora has got a six-year degree (BSc + MSc) from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in Computer Science and Engineering (1998). He is very close to getting his PhD. in Artificial Intelligence from the Dept. of Artificial Intelligence (Facultad de Informática, UPM) – presumably by mid-2012. Currently, he is a Lecturer at the Departamento de Sistemas Informáticos y Computación (DSIC – Computing Systems and Computation Department) of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM).

His research interests focus on natural language processing, linguistic and/or ontological annotation and the ontological representation of linguistic phenomena, data categories and relations. In this line, he has collaborated with the Ontology Engineering Group (OEG) of the UPM for more than eight years, in several national and European projects. More recently, he has become a member of ILSA and also an external collaborator of the ATLAS (Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Linguistic Applications) research group of the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED).

Prof. Antonio Pareja-Lora is an expert of the ISO/TC 37 committee (standardisation of terminology, language resources and linguistic annotations) and also he is the Secretary of AENOR’s CTN 191 (the national body committee corresponding to ISO/TC 37). He is also one of the officers of ACL SIGANN (Special Interest Group for Annotation of the Association for Computational Linguistics). His works have been published in several international journals, conferences and book chapters. He has served as reviewer for several international reputed conferences, such as IJCNLP, TKE or LREC and has some experience on organizing panels and workshops – for example, the Pragmatic Annotation panel at IPrA 2011 or the Linguistic Annotation Workshop (LAW) series.
