Andrea Bellandi Andrea Bellandi is a researcher at the Institute of Computational Linguistics "A. Zampolli" of the Italian National Research Council (ILC-CNR). He got a Ph.D. in Computer Science in the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning area. He works on computational lexicography and computer-assisted translation. He is the main developer of LexO, a semantic web native tool for the management of linguistic Linked Data resources.
Ryan Cordell Ryan Cordell is Associate Professor of English at Northeastern University and a Core Founding Faculty Member in the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. Cordell collaborates with colleagues in English, History, and Computer Science on the NEH- and ACLS-funded Viral Texts project, which is using robust data mining tools to discover borrowed texts across large-scale archives of nineteenth-century periodicals. Cordell is also a primary investigator in the Digging Into Data project Oceanic Exchanges, a six-nation effort examining patterns of information flow across national and linguistic boundaries in nineteenth century newspapers. Cordell is also a Senior Fellow in the Andrew W. Mellon Society of Critical Bibliography at the Rare Book School.

Emiliano Giovannetti Emiliano Giovannetti is a researcher at the Institute of Computational Linguistics "A. Zampolli" of the Italian National Research Council (ILC-CNR). He is the author of over eighty publications on knowledge extraction from texts, knowledge representation, natural language processing, computational lexicography and computer-assisted translation. He has coordinated numerous national and international projects, among which the Project for the Translation of the Babylonian Talmud into Italian and the PRIN 2017 on Religious Diversity.
Sabine Lang Sabine Lang is an art historian, specializing in digital art history and (digital) provenance research. She holds a PhD in art history, which she received from the University of Tuebingen in 2016. Her thesis focused on Surrealist Roland Penrose (1900-1984), his artistic works and the artist’s house as a representative of English Surrealism. Between 2016 and 2019 she held a post-doctoral position within the Computer Vision Group at Heidelberg University led by Björn Ommer. There she researched on how computer-based methods can be used for image understanding or to study similarities between artworks to identify visual patterns.
Björn Ommer Björn Ommer is a full professor for scientific computing at Heidelberg University, where he leads the Computer Vision Group. Ommer has studied computer science and physics at the University of Bonn and earned his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in 2007. Afterwards he held a post-doctoral position at the University of Berkeley in California. His research interests include computer vision, machine learning, cognitive science and the digital humanities; his research mainly focuses on object recognition in images and videos, behavior analysis, and their interdisciplinary applications.
Silvia Piccini Silvia Piccini graduated in Classical Literature at the University of Pisa, where she subsequently obtained her Phd in linguistics. During her studies, she perfected her knowledge of the Baltic languages, with frequent stays at the University of Vilnius. Since 2011 she has been researcher at the Institute of Computational Linguistics "A. Zampolli" of the CNR of Pisa. Her main research interest deals with computational terminology and formal languages for knowledge representation. She has been a member of Cercle Ferdinand de Saussure since 2018.
