Authorship attribution is a stylometric technique that associates text to authors based on the type of writing styles. Researchers have looked for ways to analyze the context of these texts, however, these techniques have limited results. In addition, most of these approaches view information more heavily at the syntactic and physical levels than semantic levels. Therefore, we present a new technique that incorporates the use of semantic frames for authorship attribution as it provides a deeper view into the semantic level of texts. We will use a variety of online resources in a pipeline fashion to extract information about frames within the text. We believe this is an effective method for this task and at the very least, provides the community with a new view on how to approach to the problem of authorship attribution. 

Our annual information security symposium will take place on April 3rd and 4th, 2018.
