*** PLEASE NOTE the new paper submission deadline: March 4th 2015 ***


June 4-5, Denver, Colorado (US)

Co-located with NAACL 2015


First Call for Papers ------------------------------------ We are pleased to announce that SIGLEX and SIGSEM, special interest groups of the ACL, are organizing the fourth joint conference on lexical and computational semantics: *SEM (pronounced "starsem"). This time *SEM will be collocated with NAACL in Denver, Colorado.

*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.

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

Keynote speakers ---------------------------- Marco Baroni (University of Trento) Preslav Nakov (Qatar Computing Research Institute)

Important dates (all deadlines GMT -12) --------------------------------------------------------------------- *** PLEASE NOTE the changes in the important dates *** *SEM papers due: March 4th 2015 *SEM notification of acceptance: March 30th 2015 *SEM camera-ready deadline: April 7th 2015 *SEM conference: June 4-5 2015

Submissions ------------------------ Submissions to *SEM-2015 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 program committee members. 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.

Papers will be submitted using the START system, which will be accessible from the conference web page. Double submission of papers will need to be notified at submission.

Formatting instructions --------------------------------------------- Instructions will be made available on the conference web page ( https://sites.google.com/site/starsem2015).
