Call For Papers

Important dates:

- Submission deadline (long, short, and student papers): 15th January, 2019
- Notification of acceptance: 1st March 2019
- Camera-ready due: 1st April 2019

All deadlines are 11:59PM UTC-12:00 ("anywhere on Earth").

IWCS is the bi-yearly meeting of SIGSEM, http://sigsem.org the ACL special interest group on semantics [2]; this year's edition is hosted by the Centre of Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP), http://clasp.gu.se at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science (FLoV), http://flov.gu.se/english and will be held at the Wallenberg Conference Centre of University of Gothenburg https://www.gu.se/english/conferences/conference-packages/wallenberg .

The aim of the IWCS conference is to bring together researchers interested in any aspects of the computation, annotation, extraction, and representation of meaning in natural language, whether from a lexical or structural semantic perspective. IWCS embraces both symbolic and machine learning approaches to computational semantics, and everything in between. The main conference will be run from 25-27 May 2019, preceded by workshops on 23-24 May.


Submission Deadline

Authors must submit by 15th January; however, we will allow resubmission of updated versions until 18th January. Please submit at least a sufficient abstract to allow sensible reviewer assignment by the 15th. See Instructions for Authors https://sites.google.com/view/iwcs2019/instructions-for-authors for full instructions.


Topics of interest

The areas of interest for the conference include all computational aspects of meaning of natural language within written, spoken, or multimodal communication. Papers are invited on topics in these and closely related areas, including the following:

* representation of meaning
* syntax-semantics interface
* representing and resolving semantic ambiguity
* shallow and deep semantic processing and reasoning
* hybrid symbolic and statistical approaches to representing semantics
* alternative approaches to compositional semantics
* inference methods for computational semantics
* recognising textual entailment
* learning by reading
* methodologies and practices for semantic annotation
* machine learning of semantic structures
* statistical semantics
* computational aspects of lexical semantics
* semantics and ontologies
* semantic web and natural language processing
* semantic aspects of language generation
* semantic relations in discourse and dialogue
* semantics and pragmatics of dialogue acts
* multimodal and grounded approaches to computing meaning
* semantics-pragmatics interface


Submission Requirements

Three types of submission are solicited: long papers, student papers and short papers. All types of papers should be submitted not later than 15th January, 2019.

Long papers should describe original research and must not exceed 10 pages plus references. They will be published in the conference proceedings and in the ACL Anthology, and will have a full oral presentation at the conference.

Student papers should describe original research but the first author must be a student or at least 2/3 of the work on a paper should be completed by students. Papers should not exceed 8 pages plus references. In contrast to long papers, the reviewers will give special support to authors in terms of mentoring and guidance. The papers will have a full oral presentation at the conference in a special student session and will be published in the conference proceedings and in the ACL Anthology.

Short papers (typically system or project descriptions, or ongoing research) must not exceed 5 pages plus references. They will be published in the conference proceedings and in the ACL Anthology, and will have a lightning talk at the conference, followed by a poster/demo session for discussion.

Papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format via the EasyChair system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwcs2019. Please make sure that you select the right track when submitting your paper. Contact the organisers if you have problems using EasyChair.

Please follow the information for authors for instructions on formatting your paper, given on the conference webpage https://sites.google.com/view/iwcs2019/instructions-for-authors
