RGCL would like to congratulate two members of staff – Dr Sara Moze and Dr Victoria Yaneava who have both been nominated for a VC Awards for Staff Excellence.
This nomination resulted from the University’s recent student surveys in the Innovation in Student Engagement category! The question asked in the survey was as follows:
“Could you tell us about an individual or team who has had a positive impact on your learning experience? This could include through creative and stimulating teaching, learning and assessment methods”
We look forward to the shortlist being announced.
Dr Victoria Yaneva recently attended the 15th Web for All Conference and presented the co-authored paper ‘Detecting Autism Based on Eye-Tracking Data from Web Searching Tasks’. The paper was awarded the Best Technical Paper – we would like to congratulate Dr Yaneva and her co-authors Dr Le An Ha, Dr Sukru, Dr Yeliz Yesilada and Professor Mitkov.
The Research Group in Computational Linguistics at the University of Wolverhampton (http://rgcl.wlv.ac.uk) is currently recruiting a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Translation Technology (permanent). The purpose of this post is to strengthen the research group by enhancing its research and publications in the field of translation technology. The appointed candidate will be expected to produce REF-returnable outputs, attract external income, seek industrial collaborations, teach at Masters level and supervise PhD students. He/she will join a recently appointed research fellow and two PhD students in translation technology. All these posts are part of a university investment in the area of translation technology.
We will be closed over the Christmas Break and will be back on the 2 January 2018.
The Research Group in Computational Linguistics invites applications for TWO 3-year PhD studentships in the area of translation technology. These two PhD studentships are part of a larger university investment which includes other PhD students and members of staff with the aim to strengthen the existing research undertaken by members of the group in this area. These funded student bursaries consist of a stipend towards living expenses (£14,500 per year) and remission of fees.
The area of Natural Language Engineering, and Natural Language Processing in general, is following the trend of many other areas in becoming highly specialised, with a number of application-orientated and narrow-domain topics emerging or growing in importance. These developments, often coinciding with a lack of related literature, necessitate and warrant the publication of specialised volumes focusing on a specific topic of interest to the Natural Language Processing (NLP) research community.
The Journal of Natural Language Engineering (JNLE), which now features six 160-page issues per year and has increased its impact factor for third consecutive year, invites proposals for special issues on a competitive basis regarding any topics surrounding applied NLP which have emerged as important recent developments and that have attracted the attention of a number of researchers or research groups. In recent years, Calls for Proposals for special issues have resulted in high-quality outputs and this year we look forward to another successful competition.
