SemLIS - Semantics, Logics, Information Systems for Data-User Interaction

Document Actions

The main objective of the SemLIS team is to bring back to users the power on their data. It aims at facilitating data-user interaction by making users more autonomous and agile, by providing flexibility and expressivity, and yet control and confidence in the information system. It should support users in the semantic representation of heterogeneous data, and in the collaborative acquisition of domain knowledge. The scientific foundations of the team are :

  • logics and formal languages for knowledge representation and reasoning,
  • the Semantic Web,
  • information systems,
  • natural language processing,
  • symbolic data mining,
  • and user-data interaction. 

A key idea is to reconcile the power of formal languages and the usability of natural language and interaction. On the application side, the focus will be put on social sciences and on business intelligence.


SemLIS is part of the Data and Knowledge Management (DKM) Department at IRISA.
