               *SEM (pronounced STARSEM)
             The first joint conference on
          lexical and computational semantics

             Collocated with NAACL-HLT 2012

We would like to invite you to participate in the *SEM conference.
You can find the program with the detailed schedule in the website:


The main goal of *SEM is to provide a stable forum for the growing
number of NLP researchers working on different aspects of semantic
processing, which has been scattered over a large array of small
workshops and conferences.

The conference program includes:

- an invited talk from Jerry Hobbs on "Anchoring Lexical Semantics
   in World Knowledge"

- 21 oral presentations and 13 posters

- a shared task on Resolving the Scope and Focus of Negation, with
   presentations from the organizers and 14 participants

- SemEval, the Workshop on Semantic Evaluations, featuring 8 tasks,
   oral and poster presentations by 56 participating teams
