CALL FOR PAPERS
SemEval-2010, an ACL SigLex event, hosted 16 shared tasks for
evaluating semantic analysis systems. Over 130 teams participated
with over than 230 submitted systems.
It took place in July 15-16 2010, as a co-located event with the 48th
Annual Meeting of the ACL, held in Uppsala, Sweden.
It was the fifth international evaluation exercise following
the series of successful Senseval/SemEval workshops.
Senseval-1 (1998), Senseval-2 (2001), Senseval-3 (2004) were more oriented
toward word sense disambiguation tasks. For the fourth edition,
the name was changed to SemEval-2007, motivated by a desire to broaden
the spectrum of tasks to all aspects of computational semantic analysis of language.
SemEval-2010 continued in this vein, with some continuations of
existing tasks but also many new tasks for a wider variety of semantic
TOPICS OF INTEREST
We invite submissions of papers describing in-depth evaluation
on computational semantics of text. A natural candidate is an extended
"task description" paper from SemEval-2010 (especially the novel tasks),
which includes a broad description of the problem, resources used, system comparative, analysis
of results, and some novel conclusions.
But we do not limit the contributions to SemEval-related works. Instead, other works presenting
substantial experimental evaluation on natural language semantics are
also welcome. Finally, papers describing concrete NLP systems/approaches
on one of those semantic tasks are welcome too, provided they present
relevant evaluation on the task at hand and highlight important
properties of the problem, resources, etc. System description papers
which don't add insights on the specific problem they tackled,
as well descriptions of already known and established tasks, are out of the scope of this issue.
The list of topics of interest includes but is not limited to:
