4th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2013)


********************** SCOPE **********************

The aim of the 4th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2013) is to continue the line of the previous three editions, bringing together researchers in Computational Linguistics working on Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis and researchers working on interdisciplinary aspects of affect computation from text. Additionally, this year, we would like to extend the focus to Social Media phenomena and the impact of affect-related phenomena in this context.

We encourage the submission of long and short research and demo papers including, but not restricted to the following topics related to subjectivity, sentiment and social media analysis:

• Resources for subjectivity, sentiment and social media analysis; (semi-)automatic corpora generation and annotation

• Opinion retrieval, extraction, categorization, aggregation and summarization

• Trend detection in social media using subjectivity and sentiment analysis techniques

• Data linking through social networks based on affect-related NLP methods

• Impact of affective data from social media

• Mass opinion estimation based on NLP and statistical models

• Online reputation management

• Topic and sentiment studies and applications of topic-sentiment analysis

• Domain, topic and genre dependency of sentiment analysis

• Ambiguity issues and word sense disambiguation of subjective language

• Pragmatic analysis of the opinion mining task

• Use of Semantic Web technologies for subjectivity and sentiment analysis

• Improvement of NLP tasks using subjectivity and/or sentiment analysis

• Intrinsic and extrinsic evaluations subjectivity and sentiment analysis

• Subjectivity, sentiment and emotion detection in social networks

• Classification of stance in dialogues

• Applications of sentiment and social media analysis systems

********************** SUBMISSIONS **********************

At WASSA 2013, we will accept two types of submissions: long and short papers.

Long papers for WASSA 2013 must not exceed eight (8) pages without references. Short papers must not exceed five (5) pages without references. Papers for WASSA should be submitted using the NAACL-HLT 2013 Style Files, available at:


Reviewing for WASSA 2013 will be double blind: reviewers will not be presented with the identity of paper authors. Authors should avoid writing anything that makes their identity obvious in the text.

Submissions should be original, and in particular should not previously have been formally published.

Accepted papers will be published in the NAACL-HLT WASSA proceedings. The best papers will be chosen for a special issue of an ISI- indexed journal. Previous special issues of WASSA were/are in the process of being published in the Decision Support Systems and Computer Speech and Language journals (Elsevier).

To submit a paper, please access: TBA
