PhD positions and studentships are available in the Language, Interaction and
Computation track of the PhD program offered by the Center for Mind/Brain
Sciences at the University of Trento (see website above).

The Language, Interaction & Computation track is offered by CLIC, an
interdisciplinary group of researchers studying verbal and non-verbal
communication using both computational and cognitive methods.


Areas of particular interest include:

- The study of the use of semantic and encyclopedic knowledge in communication.
We try to connect work of a theoretical nature in linguistics and computer
science (formal linguistics, lexical semantics, ontological modeling) with
empirical data-intensive approaches based on statistics and text mining (lexical
acquisition from textual data and multimodal sources) as well as behavioral and
neuroscientific evidence on conceptual representation in the mind/brain.
- The study of multimodal communication, in which agents communicate using (and
keeping in mind what is expressed with) a variety of expressive means that go
from verbal expressions to gestures as well as in the direction of a look, and
that can also use images and diagrams. Both the cognitive/linguistic aspects of
this type of communication as well as the possible technological applications
are studied in various types of interfaces.
