Sms corpus compilation for research & industry

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The sms4science project is an international project coordinated by the CENTAL, a research center of the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium). The center mainly focuses on Natural Language Processing.
Since September 2007, Im a researcher assistant at the Cental, a research centre for Natural Language Processing, linked to the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain, Belgium). I am in charge of the coordination of the sms4science project. Within the framework of this project, I pursue my PhD thesis on a comparative analysis of SMS corpora.

In recent years, SMS communication has become a social phenomenon. Many scientific studies ( in linguistics, sociology, anthropology, psychology, communication etc.) have looked into this new form of communication, but their conclusions remain partial and incomplete. Indeed, researchers lack access to the extensive databases that would allow them to study corpora based on genuine material. The aim of the sms4science project is to contribute to the study of SMS communication and of its language. In order to reach this target, researchers from various countries are joining forces to undertake the composition, for a large number of languages, of a vast SMS corpus for scientific research.
sms4science, an international network of partners:

The universities of La Réunion, Birmingham, Barcelone, Romania, Quebec, Switzerland, Thessalonique and 4 universities in France are partners in this project and are carrying out the composition of corpora for their countries.
