Institute for Language and Speech Processing (ILSP)
The Institute for Language and Speech Processing was founded in Athens, Greece, under the auspices of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (Ministry of Development) to support the development of Language Technology. To this end, it has created the critical mass of experienced scientists and the necessary technical infrastructure. Among the activities of ILSP is the development of language technology for Greek. ILSP has developed research activities in the fields of theoretical, applied and computational linguistics, natural language processing and engineering, computer assisted language learning, speech processing, synthesis and recognition.

Department of Language Technology Applications in Office Systems.
The Department of Language Technology Applications in Office Systems conducts basic and applied research in the field of Natural Language Processing. It designs, implements and integrates human language technologies in systems and applications dealing with structured data as well as with unstructured data processing. Applications include language-aware information retrieval and extraction, natural language interfaces, text mining, knowledge management, etc. LTA research and development efforts aim at developing technology amenable to multilingual and multimedia information processing. To achieve its goals, LTA builds and deploys multi-level language resources necessary in the technology production process.

Tools are designed and developed for efficient structural and grammatical text annotation, shallow parsing, named entity recognition, term extraction, co-reference resolution, event recognition and their interrelations, semantic-web oriented information extraction, text classification, word sense disambiguation, multilevel text corpora matching, multilevel parallel text alignment, automatic elicitation of lexical data pertinent to monolingual and multilingual applications, and intelligent translation memory applications.

Department of Speech Technology.
The department of Speech Technology develops basic technology to be used in speech-enabled applications. Basic and applied research is carried out on speech synthesis, compression and speech quality improvement. The objective is the definition and development of products that incorporate speech technology and can be used within specific applications. The department develops technologies for speech synthesis from text, speech compression, speech recognition, noise reduction and spectral analysis.
