================== About the Workshop ================== Semantic analysis in social networks (SN) is important for applications such as understanding and enabling social networks, natural language interfaces and human behaviour on the web, e-learning environments, cyber communities and educational or online shared workspaces. These aspects are also important in security, privacy & identity, opinion mining, sentiment analysis, and in the larger area of affective computing.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussion between leading names and researchers involved in text analysis and social networks in the context of natural language understanding, natural language generation, automatic categorization, topic detection, emotion analysis, and applications using computational approaches to process social networks. Besides methodologies and techniques for SN analysis, we also encourage the submission of papers that experiment with and describe applicative contexts in which analysis and detection of affective aspects are useful and beneficial.
