Summary: ITEM is a project developed by our group from Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), toghether with members of the University of Barcelona Computational Linguistics research group, the NLP group from Basque Country University (EHU), and the NLP research group in the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED). Researchers from the Jaume I University of Castellón also participate and work in close relationship with us.
The project aims to explore how natural language processing techniques can improve state of the art of retrieval systems on full-text and multimedial databases. The project aims to find improvements in methods to retrieve relevant documents and to allow multilingual acces to them.

Now you can test our analyzers for unrestricted Spanish text.
