First Call for Papers

*SEM 2016: THE FIFTH JOINT CONFERENCE ON LEXICAL AND COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS
August 11-12, Berlin (Germany)
Co-located with ACL 2016
https://sites.google.com/site/starsem2016



We are pleased to announce that SIGLEX and SIGSEM, special interest groups
of the ACL, are organizing the fifth joint conference on lexical and
computational semantics: *SEM (pronounced "starsem"). This time *SEM will be
colocated with ACL in Berlin, Germany.

*SEM brings together researchers interested in the semantics of natural
languages and its computational modeling. The conference embraces symbolic
and probabilistic approaches, and everything in between; theoretical
contributions as well as practical applications 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.

Important dates (all deadlines CET)
*SEM papers due: 18th of April 2016
*SEM notification of acceptance: 6th of June 2016
*SEM camera-ready deadline: 13th of June 2016
*SEM conference: 11th and 12th of August 2016


Topics of Interest
----------------------------------
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Data-driven semantics
* Word sense disambiguation and induction
* Distributional and statistical semantics
* Meaning Representations
* 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
* Extraction of events and causal and temporal relations
* (Named) Entity linking
* Pronouns and coreference
* Single- and cross-document coreference
* Discourse semantics
* Discourse structure and presupposition
* Rhetorical relations
* Sentiment analysis
* Extra-propositional aspects of meaning
* Metaphor, irony, and figurative 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
* Comparative computational semantics


Submissions
------------------------
Submissions to *SEM-2016 must describe unpublished work and be written in
English. We solicit both long and short papers. Long papers may consist of
up to eight (8) pages of content, plus at most two extra pages for
references. Short papers may consist of up to four (4) 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 reviewers. 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
included in the conference proceedings, at least one of the authors must be
registered as a participant at the *SEM conference.

Double submission of papers will need to be notified at submission.
