Semantic processing includes vital but challenging NLP tasks such as
word-sense disambiguation, semantic role labelling and lexical
acquisition. None of these tasks could be considered solved, and in many
other NLP tasks as well as in most applications, it is the semantic
processing which makes the difference.
Xerox Research Centre Europe and the team behind RANLP believe that more
efforts should be channelled towards making further advances in this area.
In line with this view, we are proud to announce the special Xerox award
for the best RANLP paper authored by young researcher(s) on this topic.
