*SEM (pronounced STARSEM)
The first joint conference on
lexical and computational semantics
Collocated with NAACL-HLT 2012
We would like to invite you to participate in the *SEM conference. You can find the program with the detailed schedule in the website:
The main goal of *SEM is to provide a stable forum for the growing number of NLP researchers working on different aspects of semantic processing, which has been scattered over a large array of small workshops and conferences.
The conference program includes:
- an invited talk from Jerry Hobbs on "Anchoring Lexical Semantics
in World Knowledge"
- 21 oral presentations and 13 posters
- a shared task on Resolving the Scope and Focus of Negation, with
presentations from the organizers and 14 participants
- SemEval, the Workshop on Semantic Evaluations, featuring 8 tasks,
oral and poster presentations by 56 participating teams
