International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation 2017 SemEval (Semantic Evaluation) is an ongoing series of evaluations of computational semantic analysis systems, organized under the umbrella of SIGLEX, the Special Interest Group on the Lexicon of the Association for Computational Linguistics. SemEval has evolved from the SensEval word sense disambiguation evaluation series. The SemEval wikipedia entry and the ACL SemEval Wiki provide a more detailed historical overview. SemEval-2017 will be the 11th workshop on semantic evaluation and will be collocated with the 55th annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). SemEval will be held in Vancouver, Canada, at the Westin Bayshore Hotel August 3rd and 4th, 2017.

'Welcome to SemEval-2017 The Semantic Evaluation (SemEval) series of workshops focuses on the evaluation and comparison of systems that can analyse diverse semantic phenomena in text with the aim of extending the current state of the art in semantic analysis and creating high quality annotated datasets in a range of increasingly challenging problems in natural language semantics. SemEval provides an exciting forum for researchers to propose challenging research problems in semantics and to build systems/techniques to address such research problems. SemEval-2017 is the eleventh workshop in the series of InternationalWorkshops on Semantic Evaluation. The first three workshops, SensEval-1 (1998), SensEval-2 (2001), and SensEval-3 (2004), focused on word sense disambiguation, each time growing in the number of languages offered, in the number of tasks, and also in the number of participating teams. In 2007, the workshop was renamed to SemEval, and the subsequent SemEval workshops evolved to include semantic analysis tasks beyond word sense disambiguation. In 2012, SemEval turned into a yearly event. It currently runs every year, but on a two-year cycle, i.e., the tasks for SemEval-2017 were proposed in 2016. SemEval-2017 was co-located with the 55th annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2017) in Vancouver, Canada. It included the following 12 shared tasks organized in three tracks:' Semantic comparison for words and texts • Task 1: Semantic Textual Similarity • Task 2: Multi-lingual and Cross-lingual Semantic Word Similarity • Task 3: Community Question Answering Detecting sentiment, humor, and truth • Task 4: Sentiment Analysis in Twitter • Task 5: Fine-Grained Sentiment Analysis on Financial Microblogs and News • Task 6: #HashtagWars: Learning a Sense of Humor • Task 7: Detection and Interpretation of English Puns • Task 8: RumourEval: Determining rumour veracity and support for rumours Parsing semantic structures • Task 9: Abstract Meaning Representation Parsing and Generation • Task 10: Extracting Keyphrases and Relations from Scientific Publications • Task 11: End-User Development using Natural Language • Task 12: Clinical TempEval
