The first joint conference on

lexical and computational semantics

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 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

oral and poster presentations by 56 participating teams
