The First Workshop on Sentiment Analysis from Indian Languages (SAIL 2013)

Collocated with the 1st International Conference on Mining Intelligence and Knowledge Exploration (MIKE-2013) 20th December, VHNSN College, Tamil Nadu, India http://sail.mike2013.org/

Paper submission: August 31, 2013 **************************************************************** *********************

Goals of the Workshop ----------------------- Sentiment Analysis (SA) from natural language text is a multifaceted and multidisciplinary AI problem, tries to narrow the communicative gap between the highly sentimental human and the sentimentally challenged computer by developing computational systems that recognize and respond to the sentimental states of the human users. In recent times, research activities in the areas of Opinion, Sentiment and/or Emotion in natural language texts and other media are gaining ground under the umbrella of subjectivity analysis and affect computing. The reason may be the huge amount of available text data in the Social Web in the forms of news, reviews, blogs, chats and even twitter. Research community are well familiar with the natural language data insufficiency. Any research or development issue for Natural Language Processing (NLP) systems demand adequate data for training, testing or evaluation. Indian NLP community is not an exception rather it is a challenging issue to collect multilingual data. India is the language diverse country, where the numbers of official languages are presently 24. Most of the Indian languages are electronically resource scared; therefore resource creation is the striking need to start Sentiment Analysis (rather any kind of NLP) research for any of the Indian languages. Prime motivation of SAIL 2013 is to gather researchers, experts and practitioners together to discuss, collaborate and instigate the SA research particularly for Indian languages, which involves resource creation, sharing and future collaboration. We welcome original and unpublished submissions on all aspects of sentiment analysis. Topics include, but are not limited to:
