We are organising a Workshop and Shared Task on Quality Assessment for Text Simplification at LREC2016. The full description of the shared task and the training data can be found here.


I obtained the PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Wolverhampton, where I had the pleasure to be a member of the Research Group in Computational Linguistics and Research Institute in Information and Language Processing.

Since 2012, my research was mainly focused on "New Data-Driven Approaches to Text Simplification" (PhD thesis), conducted under the supervision of Prof. Ruslan Mitkov (University of Wolverhampton, UK), Dr. Constantin Orasan (University of Wolverhampton, UK) and Prof. Horacio Saggion (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain).
