background in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, and cognitive
science are encouraged to apply.

In addition to course work, students will work on innovative research projects,
for which they receive a tuition waver and competitive stipend. As part of their
research experience, students will be trained to present at international
conferences and publish in academic journals.

The Institute for Intelligent Systems (IIS) at the University of Memphis is an
interdisciplinary center that incorporates the fields of computer science,
cognitive science, psychology, computational linguistics, philosophy,
engineering, and physics. The students and faculty are working on a number of
Federal grants that involve the development and testing of intelligent tutoring
systems with natural language and dialogue facilities, of conversational agents
with speech generation, facial expressions, and gestures, and of other computer
systems that require natural language processing. For more information on the
IIS, see our website.
