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

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 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
- Recognizing textual entailment
- Deep learning and semantics
- 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
Linguistic Subfield: Computational Linguistics; Semantics
LL Issue: 28.369
