Call For Papers

*SEM 2014 (pronounced STARSEM)

August 23-24, Dublin, Ireland

Co-located with COLING 2014

Paper submission deadline: 11 April 2014 (GMT -12)

First Call for Papers
We are pleased to announce that the ACL special interest groups SIGLEX and
SIGSEM are organizing the third joint conference on lexical and
computational semantics: *SEM (pronounced starsem). This time *SEM will be
collocated with COLING in Dublin.

The event will provide two days filled with presentations about
state-of-the-art research on semantics and serve as an important forum for
the lexical & computational semantics community. *SEM brings together
researchers interested in various aspects of semantic processing of human
language. The conference embraces both symbolic and probabilistic
approaches, and everything in between; theoretical contributions as well as
practical applications exploiting semantic processing 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.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Data-driven semantics
* Word sense disambiguation and induction
* (Named) Entity linking
* Distributional and statistical semantics
* Multiword and idiomatic expressions
* Semantic parsing and interpretation
* Frames and semantic role labeling
* Formal approaches to semantics
* Semantic ambiguity and underspecification
* Mathematical methods for semantics
* Temporal entities and relations
* Pronouns and coreference
* Single- and cross-document coreference
* Discourse structure and presupposition
* Rhetorical relations
* Sentiment analysis
* Extra-propositional aspects of meaning
* Semantic annotation and evaluation
* Textual inference and question answering
* Generation and summarization
* Semantics for social media
* Knowledge mining and acquisition
* Semantic web and ontologies
* Ontology learning and population
* Grounding and wikification

Submissions to *SEM-2014 must describe unpublished work and be written in
English. We solicit both long and short papers. Long papers may consist of
up to nine (9) pages of content, plus at most two extra pages for
references. Short papers may consist of up to five (5) pages, plus one extra
page for references. Long papers typically describe original research and
will be presented orally. Short papers (typically: ongoing research, project
or system description, opinion piece) will be presented as a poster. Each
submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.
Final versions should take into account the comments from the reviewers.

As the reviewing will be blind, the paper must not include the authors'
names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ..." must be
avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith,
1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be
rejected without review. In addition, please do not post your submissions
on the web until after the review process is complete. For a paper to be
include in the conference proceedings, at least one of the authors must be
registered as participant for the *SEM conference.

Papers will be submitted using the START system, which will be accessible
from the conference web page. Double submission of papers will have to be
notified at submission.

Formatting instructions
Instructions will be made available on the conference web page.
