Senseval is the international organization devoted to the evaluation of Word Sense Disambiguation Systems.

Its mission is to organise and run evaluation and related activities to test the strengths and weaknesses of WSD systems with respect to different words, different aspects of language, and different languages. It's underlying goal is to further our understanding of lexical semantics and polysemy.

Senseval is run by small committee under the auspices of ACL-SIGLEX (the Special Interest Group on the LEXicon of the Association for Computational Linguistics).
