Welcome to the website of University of Passau’s Natural Language Processing (CAROLL) Group! We are a dynamic research group at the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics. We focus on Computational Rhetoric techniques applied to Sentiment Analysis, Offensive language modelling and detection, Legal Tech, Argumentation Mining and other areas of NLP.

The project on which this research group is based is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) along with the University of Passau.
