First Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce that SIGLEX and SIGSEM, special interest groups of the ACL, are organizing the 7th Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics: *SEM. This time *SEM will be co-located with NAACL 2018 in New Orleans (USA), and it will take place on the 5-6 of June 2018.

*** The two fantastic invited speakers at *SEM 2018 will be Ellie Pavlick (shared with SemEval) and Christopher Potts ***

*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 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

Multimodal computational semantics

Comparative computational semantics

IMPORTANT DATES --------------------------------

Papers submission due: March 9, 2018 (NOTE: Extended from March 2) Notification of acceptance: April 9, 2018 Camera-ready: April 16, 2018 *SEM conference: June 5-6, 2018

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS ----------------------------------------------

Submissions to *SEM-2018 must describe unpublished work and be written in English. We solicit both long and short papers.

Long papers describe original research and may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references. Final versions of long papers will be given one additional page of content (up to 9 pages) so that reviewers' comments can be taken into account. Long papers will be presented orally.

Short papers describe original focused research, project or system description, and may consist of up to four (4) pages, plus unlimited pages for references. Upon acceptance, short papers will be given five (5) content pages in the proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use this additional page to address reviewers comments in their final versions. Short papers will be presented as posters.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. 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) ...". As for online paper sharing, at *SEM, we adopt the ACL policy for submission, which can be found here: https://aclweb.org/adminwiki/index.php?title=ACL_Policies_for_Submission,_Review_and_Citation. Papers that do not conform to requirements will be rejected without review. 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: http://www.softconf.com/naacl2018/starsem18/

Please note that double submission of papers will need to be notified at submission.
