About Us

Welcome to the Jena University Language & Information Engineering Lab

The Language and Information Engineering Lab at Jena University (JULIE Lab) was established in 2004 after the group moved from Freiburg University to Jena. The Lab's research focus is on automatic text analysis in order to service various applications such as information extraction, text mining, cross-language document and information retrieval, and text summarization. Most of these applications are embedded in the biomedical domain.

While our emphasis is on building real-world natural language systems, these prototypes require a methodologically sound basis in terms of language technology tools and resources. Driven by these needs, the members of the JULIE Lab are heavily engaged in developing morphological, syntactic and semantic processors, as well as domain-specific knowledge resources (ontologies) for our various text analysis applications.

Over the years, the former team in Freiburg and the staff in Jena have gained considerable international reputation and a strong external visibility. The JULIE Lab is also involved in various national and international research projects and collaborations. We invite excellent students and graduates, from Germany and abroad, to consider joining our Lab and to contribute to our vision of building systems that exceed the capability and quality of humans to analyze large volumes of text.
