MAVIR is a research network co-funded by the Regional Government of Madrid and the European Social Fund under MA2VICMR (2010-2013) and MAVIR (2006-2009) programs.

The techniques, resources and applications developed by the groups participating in the informationprocessing area focus on:

  • Construction of linguistic resources for multilingual information processing and access.
  • Acquisition of linguistic knowledge from corpora and web mining techniques.
  • Adaptation and integration of linguistic resources in web access applications.
  • Automatic report and summaries generation, automatic document classification and clustering.
  • Dialogue systems allowing interactive queries over different domains through advanced interfaces.
  • Construction of domain and general-purpose ontologies for the Semantic Web.
  • Managing multimedia and multilingual information in order to organise and visualise it following the usability standard by the W3C.
  • Information retrieval and information extraction, specially on the area of personalised information retrieval and information in context.
  • Design of soft-computing methods applied to images processing problems such as image segmentation and recognition, objects tracking in video sequences and 3D vision.
  • Spontaneous speech recognition and speech-to-text systems.
  • Evaluation of information access systems and cybermetrics analyses.


The core of the consortium consists seven research groups from universities and organisations from the Region of Madrid, namely:
