Doctor by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid with the thesis Ontotag - a linguistic and ontological annotation model suitable for the semantic web 2012. Supervised by Dr. Guadalupe Aguado de Cea, Dr. Asunción Gómez Pérez.

Antonio Pareja-Lora got a PhD in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in 2012. He is an Assistant Professor (Profesor Ayudante Doctor) at the Departamento de Filología Moderna (Modern Philology Department), of the Universidad de Alcalá (UAH). His research interests focus on (1) natural language processing; (2) the linguistic and/or ontological annotation and the ontological representation of linguistic phenomena, data categories and relations; (3) linguistic linked-data; (4) computer engineering applied to terminology and translation; (5) technology-enhanced language learning (TELL: CALL, MALL, LMOOCs, etc.). He collaborated in several European and national projects with the Ontology Engineering Group (OEG) of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) for more than eight years. More recently, he has become a member of FITISPos (Formación e Investigación en Traducción e Interpretación en los Servicios Públicos, UAH), ATLAS (Applying Technologies to LAnguageS, from UNED) and the DMEG (Data Mining Engineering Group, from Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico) research groups. Dr. Pareja-Lora is an expert of the ISO/TC 37 Committee (standardisation of terminology, language resources and linguistic annotations), being also the Convenor of AENOR's AEN/CTN 191 (the national body committee corresponding to ISO/TC 37). He is also one of the officers of ACL SIGANN (Special Interest Group for Annotation of the Association for Computational Linguistics). He has published extensively in international conferences and journals, as well as in several collected works. He has also been reviewer for several international reputed conferences, such as ACL, COLING, IJCNLP, TKE or LREC. In addition, he also has some experience in organizing conferences and workshops, such as TKE 2016 or the Linguistic Annotation Workshop (LAW) series. His most recent research is summarised in the books "Providing Linked Linguistic and Semantic Web Annotations - The OntoTag Hybrid Annotation Model" (, and its follow-up, "Development of Linguistic Linked Open Data Resources for Collaborative Data-Intensive Research in the Language Sciences" (, which he has (co-)authored.
