Version française


Unitex is an open-source text analysis software widely used in research, teaching and industry. It relies on Finite State technologies and incorporates large-scale language resources for several languages. GramLab is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), based on Unitex software components but specifically designed for industrial purposes. It integrates tools that help collaborative development, versioning, etc. For any question about Unitex, please, go to the forum.

The Unitex/GramLab Workshop aims at gathering academic and industrial users, developers and researchers contributing to the development of this open-source software and its resources or using them for developing new research or industrial applications. It is also a unique opportunity for new users to learn the basic and advanced Unitex techniques and discuss their projects with experts during hands-on sessions.

The program will offer an overview of the current trends: the development of real-life industrial applications based on Unitex, the use of Unitex in various research projects, the improvement of Unitex through the development of new features and the extension of the language resources. Training sessions of various levels will be also offered.
