14th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS)
University of Groningen, The Netherlands
14-18th June 2021
IWCS is the biennial meeting of SIGSEM , the ACL special interest group on semantics ; this year's edition is organized by the Computational Linguistics department of the University of Groningen  and will most likely be a fully online conference.
 http://sigsem.org/  http://aclweb.org/  https://www.rug.nl/research/clcg/research/cl/
The aim of the IWCS conference is to bring together researchers interested in any aspects of the computation, annotation, extraction, representation and neuralisation of meaning in natural language, whether this is from a lexical or structural semantic perspective. IWCS embraces both symbolic and machine learning approaches to computational semantics, and everything in between. The conference and workshops will take place between 14-18 June 2021, though likely not on all five days.
We invite paper submissions in all areas of computational semantics, in other words all computational aspects of meaning of natural language within written, spoken, signed, or multi-modal communication. Submissions are invited on these closely related areas:
* design of meaning representations * syntax-semantics interface * representing and resolving semantic ambiguity * shallow and deep semantic processing and reasoning * hybrid symbolic and statistical approaches to semantics * distributional semantics * alternative approaches to compositional semantics * inference methods for computational semantics * recognising textual entailment * learning by reading * methodologies and practices for semantic annotation * machine learning of semantic structures * probabilistic computational semantics * neural semantic parsing * computational aspects of lexical semantics * semantics and ontologies * semantic web and natural language processing * semantic aspects of language generation * generating from meaning representations * semantic relations in discourse and dialogue * semantics and pragmatics of dialogue acts * multimodal and grounded approaches to computing meaning * semantics-pragmatics interface * applications of computational semantics
Two types of submission are solicited: long papers and short papers. Both types should be submitted not later than 12 March.
Long papers should describe original research and must not exceed 8 pages plus references. Short papers (typically system or project descriptions, or ongoing research) must not exceed 4 pages plus references. Both types will be published in the conference proceedings and in the ACL Anthology. Accepted papers get an extra page in the camera-ready version.
IWCS papers should be formatted following the common two-column structure as used by, for example, ACL and EMNLP. Specific IWCS Latex style-files will soon be made available on the website.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format via the Softconf system. Please make sure that you select the right track when submitting your paper. Contact the organisers if you have problems using Softconf. A submission link will be made available at https://iwcs2021.github.io/.
