Conference 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.

*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


Papers submission due: March 2, 2018

Notification of acceptance: April 2, 2018

Camera-ready: April 16, 2018

*SEM conference: June 5-6, 2018


Submissions to *SEM-2018 must describe unpublished work and be written in English.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 at most two extra 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 one extra page 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.
