Location: Oxford, United Kingdom

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Semantics

Call Deadline: 08-Oct-2010

Meeting Description:

The aim of the IWCS conference is to bring together researchers interested
in any aspects of the computation, annotation, extraction, and
representation of meaning in natural language, whether this is from a lexical
or structural semantic perspective. IWCS embraces both symbolic and
statistical approaches to computational semantics, and everything in
between.

2nd Call For Papers

The University of Oxford will host the Ninth International Conference on
Computational Semantics (IWCS-2011), which will take place at the
Computing Laboratory on 12-14 January 2011. The aim of the IWCS
conference is to bring together researchers interested in any aspects of the
computation, annotation, extraction, and representation of meaning in
natural language, whether this is from a lexical or structural semantic
perspective. IWCS embraces both symbolic and statistical approaches to
computational semantics, and everything in between.

Topics of Interest

Areas of special interest for the conference will be computational aspects of
meaning of natural language within written, spoken, or multimodal
communication. Papers are invited that are concerned with topics in these
and closely related areas, including the following:

- representation of meaning
- syntax-semantics interface
- modelling and context in semantic interpretation
- representing and resolving semantic ambiguity
- shallow and deep semantic processing and reasoning
- inference methods for computational semantics
- recognising textual entailment
- methodologies and practices for semantic annotation
- machine learning of semantic structures
- statistical semantics
- computational aspects of lexical semantics
- semantics and ontologies
- semantic web and natural language processing
- semantic aspects of language generation
- semantic relations in discourse and dialogue
- semantics and pragmatics of dialogue acts
- computing meaning in multimodal interaction
- semantics-pragmatics interface

Submission Requirements

Two types of submission are solicited: long papers and short papers. All
papers will be reviewed by the PC. Please refer to the IWCS-2011 website
for submission instructions.

Long papers
Long papers should describe original research and must not exceed 10
pages. They will be published in the conference proceedings and will have
a full oral presentation of about 30 minutes at the conference.

Short papers
Short papers (typically system or project descriptions, or ongoing research)
must not exceed 5 pages. They will be published in the conference
proceedings, and will have a brief oral presentation (5 minutes) at the
conference, followed by a poster/demo session for discussion.

Publication
The IWCS proceedings will be published in a printed volume with an
ISBN number. In addition, all articles will be archived as PDF format
in the ACL Anthology.
