Evaluation Exercises on Semantic Evaluation - ACL SigLex event



** Call for Interest in Participation **

Feedback requested by Mar 1, 2009

The purpose of Senseval (http://www.senseval.org) is to evaluate semantic analysis systems. SemEval-2010 will be the 5th workshop on semantic evaluation.

The first three workshops, SensEval-1 through SensEval-3, were focused on word sense disambiguation, each time growing in the number of languages offered in the tasks and in the number of participating teams. In the 4th workshop, SemEval-2007, the nature of the tasks evolved to include semantic analysis tasks outside of word sense disambiguation.

We are now getting ready for SemEval-2010! The list of tasks is now available.

Here is a short preview of the tasks that will be offered (for more details, see the webpage):

  • #1 Coreference Resolution in Multiple Languages
  • #2 Cross-Lingual Lexical Substitution
  • #3 Cross-Lingual Word Sense Disambiguation
  • #4 VP Ellipsis - Detection and Resolution
  • #5 Automatic Keyphrase Extraction from Scientific Articles
  • #6 Classification of Semantic Relations between MeSH Entities in Swedish Medical Texts
  • #7 Argument Selection and Coercion
  • #8 Multi-Way Classification of Semantic Relations Between Pairs of Nominals
  • #9 Noun Compound Interpretation Using Paraphrasing Verbs
  • #10 Linking Events and their Participants in Discourse
  • #11 Event Detection in Chinese News Sentences
  • #12 Parser Training and Evaluation using Textual Entailment
  • #13 TempEval 2
  • #14 Word Sense Induction
  • #15 Infrequent Sense Identification for Mandarin Text to Speech Systems
  • #16 Japanese WSD
  • #17 All-words Word Sense Disambiguation on a Specific Domain
  • #18 Disambiguating Sentiment Ambiguous Adjectives

As with previous evaluations, participants will be provided with specific training data, and will have the chance to test their systems on common data sets.

We are now seeking feedback from potential participants. If you may be interested to participate in one or more SemEval task, please fill out the form below and email it to
