Call For Papers
IWCS is the bi-yearly meeting of SIGSEM, the ACL special interest group on semantics [2]; this year's edition is hosted by the Centre of Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP), at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science (FLoV),  and will be held at the Wallenberg Conference Centre of University of Gothenburg.

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 from a lexical or structural semantic perspective. IWCS embraces both symbolic and machine learning approaches to computational semantics, and everything in between. The main conference will be run from 25-27 May 2019, preceded by workshops on 23-24 May.

Submission Deadline

Authors must submit by 15th January; however, we will allow resubmission of updated versions until 18th January. Please submit at least a sufficient abstract to allow sensible reviewer assignment by the 15th. See Instructions for Authors  for full instructions.

Topics of interest 

The areas of interest for the conference include all computational aspects of meaning of natural language within written, spoken, or multimodal communication. Papers are invited on topics in these and closely related areas, including the following: 

* representation of meaning 
* syntax-semantics interface 
* representing and resolving semantic ambiguity 
* shallow and deep semantic processing and reasoning 
* hybrid symbolic and statistical approaches to representing semantics 
* alternative approaches to compositional semantics 
* inference methods for computational semantics 
* recognising textual entailment 
* learning by reading 
* 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 
* multimodal and grounded approaches to computing meaning 
* semantics-pragmatics interface
