6th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2015)

************************************************************************************************** ************************************************************************************************** http://optima.jrc.it/wassa2015/

Held in conjunction to EMNLP 2015 - http://www.emnlp2015.org/

******************************************************* BACKGROUND *******************************************************

Research in automatic Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis (SSA), as subtasks of Affective Computing and Natural Language Processing (NLP), has flourished in the past years. The growth in interest in these tasks was motivated by the birth and rapid expansion of the Social Web that made it possible for people all over the world to share, comment or consult content on any given topic. In this context, opinions, sentiments and emotions expressed in Social Media texts have been shown to have a high influence on the social and economic behaviour worldwide. SSA systems are highly relevant to many real-world applications (e.g. marketing, eGovernance, business intelligent, social analysis) and also to many tasks in Natural Language Processing (NLP) – information extraction, question answering, textual entailment, to name just a few. The importance of this field has been proven by the high number of approaches proposed in research in the past decade, as well as by the interest that it raised from other disciplines (Economics, Sociology, Psychology) and the applications that were created using its technology. In spite of the growing body of research in the area in the past years, dealing with affective phenomena in text has proven to be a complex, interdisciplinary problem that remains far from being solved. Its challenges include the need to address the issue from different perspectives and at different levels, depending on the characteristics of the textual genre, the language(s) treated and the final application for which the analysis is done.
