                         SemEval-2012         International Workshop on Semantic Evaluations

                     an ACL-SIGLEX event

                   Second Call for Participation                   (Please note the date changes)


The purpose of the SensEval/SemEval workshops (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SemEval) is to evaluate semantic analysis systems. SemEval-2012 is the next event in the series.

The first three workshops, SensEval-1 through SensEval-3, were focused on word sense disambiguation, each time growing in the number of languages offered in the tasks and in the number of participating teams. In 2007 the workshop was renamed SemEval and the next two workshops SemEval-2007 and SemEval-2010 the nature of the tasks evolved to include semantic analysis tasks outside of word sense disambiguation.

We are now ready for SemEval-2012!  SemEval-2012 is associated with the new *SEM, First Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics, and co-located with NAACL, Montreal, Canada, June 7-8, 2012.

The list of tasks with complete descriptions and task related data and scripts is now available.  As with previous evaluations, participants are provided with specific training data, and will have the chance to test their systems on common data sets.  Here is a short preview of the tasks that are offered (for more details, please visit our webpage):

1. English Lexical Simplification 2. Measuring Degrees of Relational Similarity 3. Spatial Role Labeling 4. Evaluating Chinese Word Similarity 5. Chinese Semantic Dependency Parsing 6. Semantic Textual Similarity 7. COPA: Choice Of Plausible Alternatives 8. Cross-lingual Textual Entailment for Content Synchronization
