Other national projects

LabEx EFL (2010-2019). PI: Christian Puech (HTL, Paris 3, Sorbonne Paris Cité). Topic: empirical foundations of linguistics, including computational linguistics and natural language processing.  ALMAnaCH’s predecessor team ALPAGE was one of the partner teams of this LabEx, which gathers a dozen of teams within and around Paris whose research interests include one aspects of linguistics or more. Several ALMAnaCH members are now “individual members” of the LabEx EFL. B. Sagot serves as deputy head (and former head) of one of the scientific strands of the LabEx, namely strand 6 dedicated to language resources. Benoît Sagot and D; Seddah are (co-)heads of a number of scientific “operations” within strands 6, 5 (“computational semantic analysis”) and 2 (“experimental grammar”). Main collaborations are related to language resource development (strands 5 and 6), syntactic and semantic parsing (strand 5, especially with LIPN [CNRS and U. Paris 13]) and computational morphology (strands 2 and 6, especially with CRLAO [CNRS and Inalco] and LLF [CNRS and Paris-Diderot]).

PSL project LAKME (2015-2017). PI: Thierry Poibeau (LATTICE). Topic: language resource development for morphologically rich languages, especially Rabbinic Hebrew (syntactic level), Medieval French (morphological level) and some Finno-Ugric languages (to a lesser extent).

DGE/DGA RAPID VerDI (2015-2018). PI: company Trooclick. Topic: automatic identification of information concealment on internet.


National collaborations

TGIR Huma-Num: following ALPAGE, ALMAnaCH will be member of the CORLI consortium on “corpora, languages and interactions” (B. Sagot is a member of the consortium’s board).

Institut de Linguistique Française (ILF): following ALPAGE, ALMAnaCH will be a member of this CNRS “federation”, especially as B. Sagot is the scientific head of the “Corpus de Référence du Français” initiative. This ILF project, whose other head is Franck Neveu, aims to develop a French National Corpus, a resource that has been awaited for a long time.

European projects

H2020 Parthenos (2015-2019). PI: Franco Niccolucci (University of Florence). L. Romary is a work package coordinator. Topic: strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields through a thematic cluster of European Research Infrastructures, integrating initiatives, e-infrastructures and other world-class infrastructures, and building bridges between different, although tightly interrelated, fields.

H2020 EHRI “European Holocaust Research Infrastructure” (2015-2019). PI: Conny Kristel (NIOD-KNAW, NL). L. Romary is task leader. Topic: transform archival research on the Holocaust, by providing methods and tools to integrate and provide access to a wide variety of archival content.

H2020 Iperion CH (2015-2019). PI: Luca Pezzati [CNR, IT]. L. Romary is task leader. Topic: coordinating infrastructural activities in the cultural heritage domain.

ERIC DARIAH “Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities” (set up as a consortium of states, 2014-2034; L. Romary is president of the board of director. Topic: coordinating Digital Humanities infrastructure activities in Europe (17 partners, 5 associated partners).

COST enCollect (2017-2020), PI: Lionel Nicolas (European Academy of Bozen/Bolzano). Topic: combining language learning and crowdsourcing for developing language teaching materials and more generic language resources for NLP

Bilateral projects

ANR-NSF project MCM-NL (2016-2020). PI: John Hale (Cornell University, USA). Local head: É. de La Clergerie. Topic: exploring correlations between data from neuro-imagery (fMRI, EEG) and data from NLP tools (mostly parsers). The data will come from “Le Petit Prince” read in French and English, and parsed with different parsers. Other partners: Cornell Univ., Univ. Michigan, Paris Saclay/Neurospin,  Univ. Paris 8.
