Evaluating Word Sense Disambiguation Systems

There are now many computer programs for automatically determining which sense a word is being used in. One would like to be able to say which were better, which worse, and also which words, or varieties of language, presented particular problems to which programs. SENSEVAL is designed to meet this need.

The first SENSEVAL took place in the summer of 1998, for English, French and Italian, culminating in a workshop held at Herstmonceux Castle, Sussex, England on September 2-4. The SENSEVAL-2 workshop will be held in conjunction with ACL/EACL 2001, in Toulouse, France, probably July 5--6 2001.
