Computational semantics and computational lexical semantics
SensEval/SemEval is a series of competitions in computational lexical semantics. It started out as a competition in automatic word sense disambiguation, but SemEval-2007 started looking a much wider variety of tasks, such as lexical substitution (paraphrasing) and metonymy resolution. Also check out the task list for the most recent SemEval-2010.
SIGLEX is the special interest group on lexical semantics of the Association for Computational Linguistics.
