Room: Salon VI (a.k.a Grand VI)

Semantic parsers map sentences to formal representations of their underlying meaning. Recently, algorithms have been developed to learn to recover increasingly expressive representations with ever weaker forms of supervision. These advances have enabled many applications, including question answering, relation extraction, robot control, interpreting instructions, and generating programs.
This workshop, collocated with ACL 2014, aims to achieve two goals. First, to bring together researchers in the field to discuss the state of the art and opportunities for future research. Second, to create a stage for presenting the variety of current approaches, thereby providing a unique opportunity for new entrants to the field.
We would like to thank the speakers, presenters and attendees for making SP14 such a success. Thank you!

Submissions are encouraged to discuss visionary and adventurous research directions. Three exceptional submissions will be awarded Google Exceptional Submission Awards. All accepted submissions will be presented as posters. Additionally, a small number of selected submissions will be presented orally.
We seek submissions of 2-4 page (excluding references) abstracts on semantic parsing. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
Each submission must be anonymized and contain a title and abstract text. Abstracts on work published or submitted elsewhere are welcome. Please submit your papers at https://www.softconf.com/acl2014/SP14/.
To encourage inclusiveness and the presentation of speculative and recent work, inclusion in the conference proceedings is optional. The author's preference should be indicated with the final submission.
