Call For Papers


August 5-6 2021, Bangkok, Thailand

Co-located with ACL-IJCNLP 2021

Submission deadline: April 9th


*SEM brings together researchers interested in the semantics of (many and
diverse!) natural languages and its computational modeling. The conference
embraces data-driven, neural, and probabilistic approaches, as well as
symbolic approaches and everything in between; practical applications as
well as theoretical contributions are welcome. The long-term goal of *SEM is
to provide a stable forum for the growing number of NLP researchers working
on all aspects of semantics of (many and diverse!) natural languages.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Lexical semantics and word representations
* Compositional semantics and sentence representations
* Statistical, machine learning and deep learning methods for semantics
* Multilingual and cross-lingual semantics
* Word sense disambiguation and induction
* Semantic parsing; syntax-semantics interface
* Frame semantics and semantic role labeling
* Textual inference, entailment and question answering
* Formal approaches to semantics
* Extraction of events and causal and temporal relations
* Entity linking; pronouns and coreference
* Discourse, pragmatics, and dialogue
* Machine reading
* Extra-propositional aspects of meaning
* Multiword and idiomatic expressions
* Metaphor, irony, and humor
* Knowledge mining and acquisition
* Common sense reasoning
* Language generation
* Semantics in NLP applications: sentiment analysis, abusive language
detection, summarization, fact-checking, etc.
* Multidisciplinary research on semantics
* Grounding and multimodal semantics
* Human semantic processing
* Semantic annotation, evaluation, and resources
* Ethical aspects and bias in semantic representations

We encourage authors to think about the ethical aspects of their work, and
to address and discuss all ethical questions and implications relevant to
their research. STARSEM values reproducibility and particularly welcomes
submissions that adhere to the reproducibility guidelines as specified here:

Submissions must describe unpublished work and be written in English. We
solicit both long and short papers. Please note that double submission of
papers will need to be notified at submission.

Long papers describe original research and may consist of up to eight (8)
pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references. Final versions of
long papers will be given one additional page of content (up to 9 pages) so
that reviewers' comments can be taken into account. Short papers describe
original focused research and may consist of up to four (4) pages, plus
unlimited pages for references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given
five (5) content pages in the proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use
this additional page to address reviewers comments in their final versions.
