SemEval-2014: International Workshop on Semantic Evaluations, an ACL-SIGLEX event

Register to participate in SemEval-2014 at

SemEval-2014, the 8th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluations, an ACL-SIGLEX
event, invites participation in a broad range of tasks in the semantic analysis of natural
language. The aim of the SemEval series of workshops is to extend the current
state-of-the-art in semantic analysis and to help create high quality annotated datasets
in a range of increasingly challenging problems in natural language semantics.
For more information on SemEval, please see

At SemEval-2014, participants will be able to choose from a wide range of tasks in
distributional semantics, semantic similarity, sentiment analysis, semantic parsing,
grammar induction, and analysis of clinical text, among others.
Participants will be provided with training data sets well in advance to help them
develop their systems.

SemEval-2014 is to be co-located with COLING-2014, which will take place in Dublin,
Ireland, 23-29 August.

The list of tasks with complete descriptions and trial data are
