Automatic Language Processing / Information Retrieval

Information retrieval (IR) deals with the representation, storage, organization of, and access to information items.  These items could be references to real documents, documents themselves or even single paragraphs, as well as Web pages, spoken documents, images, pictures, music, video, etc.  At Univeristy of Neuchatel, we are more interested in multilingual IR, Web IR and IR dedicated to special domain (e.g., medicine) as well as opinionated IR.
