WASSA 2017 - http://optima.jrc.it/wassa2017/

*** to be held in conjunction to EMNLP 2017, in Copenhagen, Denmark, on September 8th, 2017

The 8th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2017) will be held in conjunction with EMNLP-2017. Its aim is to continue the line of the previous 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, starting with WASSA 2013, we extended the focus to Social Media phenomena and the impact of affect-related phenomena in this context. In this new proposed edition, we would like to encourage the submission of long and short research and demo papers including, but not restricted to the following topics related to subjectivity and sentiment analysis:

We invite long and short submissions, including, but not restricted to the following topics:

• 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

• Application of theories from other related fields (Neuropsychology, Cognitive Science, Psychology) to subjectivity and sentiment analysis

• Visualizing affect in traditional text sources as well as social media posts
