*General call (now)*
If you are interested in working on *multilingual Natural Language Processing* (specifically, deep learning for multilingual lexical semantics), in the application please specify that you would like to work at Doctoral School of Computer Science under the supervision of prof. Roberto Navigli <http://wwwusers.di.uniroma1.it/%7Enavigli/>. Please write to navigli at di.uniroma1.it should you need further information on the application in this field. The application deadline is *May 2nd*.
