The Information and Language Processing Systems group is part of the
Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam.
Our research is aimed at intelligent information access, especially in the face of
massive amounts of information. We work on finding and analyzing
content (information retrieval, machine translation, language
technology), the analysis of structural information (social networks,

transcriptions of audio or video. We are involved in a large number of
projects with other groups, both within and outside academia. Our
