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

                        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
