Short bio

Bernardo Magnini is senior researcher at FBK in Trento, where he is responsible of the Research Unit on Natural Language Processing and scientific coordinator of the Cognitive Computing Research Line. His interests are in the field of Computational Linguistics, particularly lexical semantics and lexical resources, question answering and textual entailment, areas in which he has published more than 170 scientific papers. He has coordinated international research projects, including QALL-ME (Question Answering), LIVEMEMORIES (content extraction and integration), and EXCITEMENT (textual inferences). He has launched EVALITA, the evaluation campaign for both NLP and speech tools for Italian, and has co-chaired CLIC-it 2014, the first Italian conference on Computational Linguistics. 

He has been contract professor at the University of Trento and Bolzano and he is staff member and lecturer at the ICT International Doctoral School of the  University of Trento.

He is member of the Scientific Committee of the Know Center (Graz) and of the Institute for Applied Linguistics at Eurac Research (Bolzano). 

He currently serves as President of the Italian Association for Computational Linguistics and as the Manager of the Italian Office of the World Wide Web Consortium.
