August 3-4 2017, Vancouver, Canada
Co-located with ACL 2017
Due to this year's extremely tight conference schedule and the overlap of several conference and workshop deadlines, the deadline for submission to *SEM has been extended to April 17th.
We are pleased to announce that SIGLEX and SIGSEM, special interest groups of the ACL, are organizing the 6th Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics: *SEM (pronounced "starsem"). This time *SEM will be co-located with ACL 2017 in Vancouver (Canada), and it will take place August 3-4, 2017.
*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 in the form of long and short papers. 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.
This year, the *SEM special theme is Representations of Meaning. See more details in the Call for Papers.
