Organisation profile

Website: http://www.ilcc.inf.ed.ac.uk/

The Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) is dedicated to the pursuit of basic and applied research on computational approaches to language, communication, and cognition.  Primary research areas include the following: natural language processing and computational linguistics, spoken language processing, information extraction, retrieval and presentation, dialogue and multimodal interaction, computational theories of human cognition and educational and assistive technology.

ILCC is part of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.  However, much of the research in ILCC is interdisciplinary in nature, and we maintain strong ties to several other departments in Edinburgh, primarily within the School of Philosophy, Psychology, and Language Sciences.  Members of ILCC are involved in two cross-college research centres, the Human Communication Research Centre (HCRC) and the Centre for Speech Technology Research (CSTR).
