*First Call for Papers*

We are pleased to announce that the ACL special interest groups SIGLEX 
are organizing the third joint conference on lexical and computational 
*SEM (pronounced starsem). This time *SEM will be collocated with COLING 
in Dublin.

The event will provide two days filled with presentations about 
research on semantics and serve as an important forum for the lexical & 
semantics community.
*SEM brings together researchers interested in various aspects of 
semantic processing
of human language. The conference embraces both symbolic and 
probabilistic approaches,
and everything in between; theoretical contributions as well as 
practical applications
exploiting semantic processing 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*

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Data-driven semantics
* Word sense disambiguation and induction
* (Named) Entity linking
* Distributional and statistical semantics
* 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
* Pronouns and coreference
* Single- and cross-document coreference
* Discourse structure and presupposition
* Rhetorical relations
* Sentiment analysis
* Extra-propositional aspects of 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


Submissions to *SEM-2014 must describe unpublished work and be written 
in English.
We solicit both long and short papers.
Long papers may consist of up to nine (9) pages of content, plus at most 
two extra
pages for references. Short papers may consist of up to five (5) pages, 
plus one extra
page for references.
Long papers typically describe original research and will be presented 
orally. Short
papers (typically: ongoing research, project or system description, 
opinion piece) will
be presented as a poster.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee 
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) ...". Papers that do not 
conform to these
requirements will be rejected without review.
In addition, please do not post your submissions on the web until after 
the review
process is complete. For a paper to be include in the conference 
proceedings, at least
one of the authors must be registered as participant for the *SEM 

Papers will be submitted using the START system, which will be 
accessible from the
conference web page. Double submission of papers will have to be 
notified at submission.

*Formatting instructions*

will be made available on the conference web page.
