Apologies for cross-posting ======================================== First Shared task on Sentiment Analysis in Indian Languages (SAIL) Tweets @ MIKE 2015 http://amitavadas.com/SAIL/index.html

*Abstract* Sentiment Analysis (SA) has became a main stream research during the last two decades with a immense possibility. On the other hand the evolution of social media texts – such as blogs, micro-blogs (e.g., Twitter), and chats (e.g., Facebook messages) – has created many new opportunities for information access and language technology, but also many new challenges, making it one of the prime present-day research areas. Indeed sentiment analysis in social media text is a hot research discipline in present days, but most of the efforts so far have been made on English. To this end this shared task: SAIL will patronise Indian researchers to work on automatic sentiment analysis for their own languages by providing them relevant data. Prime motivation of the SAIL 2015 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.

*The Task* Participants will be provided training, development and test data to report the efficiency of their sentiment analysis system. *Hindi*, and *Bengali* annotated tweets will be released. We are also planning to have *Tamil* and *Telugu* data. Efficiency will be measured in terms of Precision, Recall, and F-measure. Shortlisted candidates will present their techniques and results in a special session at MIKE 2015.

*Important Dates* Trial Data ready: July 1, 2015 Training Data Release: July 15, 2015 Evaluation Data Release: August 1, 2015 Run Submission: August 4, 2015 Report Submission: August 19, 2015 Reviews on Reports: September 10, 2015
