ISA-11, Eleventh Joint ACL - ISO Workshop on Interoperable Semantic

Annotation, London, April 14, 2015
in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Computational
Semantics (IWCS 2015),

ISA-11 is the eleventh edition of a series of joint workshops of the ACL
Special Interest Group in Semantics (SIGSEM) and the International
Organization of Standardization ISO. ISA-workshops bring together experts
in the annotation of semantic information as expressed in text, speech,
gestures, graphics, video, images, and in communicative behaviour where
multiple modalities are combined. Examples of semantic annotation include
the markup of events, time, space, dialogue acts, discourse relations,
semantic roles, coreference and named entities, for which the ISO
organization pursues the establishment of annotation standards in order
to support the creation of interoperable semantic resources.


Three types of submission are invited:

- Research papers, describing original research in the area of semantic
annotation; these can be either long (6-8 pages, not including references)
or short (3-4 pages, not including references);
- Project notes, describing recent, ongoing or planned projects involving
semantic annotation (2-4 pages including references;
- Demonstration notes, accompanying demonstration of systems for automatic
semantic annotation or software tools to support manual semantic annotation
(2-4 pages including references),

Topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:
* methodological aspects of semantic annotation
* experiments in semantic annotation
* comparative studies of annotation schemes
* semantic annotation and ontologies
* evaluation of annotation schemes
* semantic annotation and semantic interpretation
* context-dependence in semantic annotations
* applications of semantic annotation
* integration of semantic annotation and other linguistic annotations
* issues in the annotation of specific semantic phenomena, such as:
- events, states, processes, circumstances, facts
- relations in discourse and dialogue
- time and space
- modality, polarity and factuality
- sentiment, certainty, attribution
- quantification and modification
- coreference relations
- semantic roles and predicate-argument structures
- reference and named entities
* integration of annotations of different semantic phenomena
* levels of granularity in annotation schemes
* cross-domain issues in semantic annotation, such as language- and
* best practices in semantic annotation

Submissiona are peer-revised by the Program Committee (see below).
Accepted papers will be published electronically as part of the online
IWCS 2015 proceedings.

Papers should be summated electronically in PDF format, following the
IWCS 2015 formatting guidelines - see
