*/4^th Workshop on Computational Approaches to /*

*/ Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2013) /*



The aim of the 4^th 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

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

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

- 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

- 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

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

- Intrinsic and extrinsic evaluations subjectivity and sentiment

- Subjectivity, sentiment and emotion detection in social networks

- Classification of stance in dialogues

- Applications of sentiment and social media analysis systems


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

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

  Important dates:

Paper due date: March 1 (tentative), 2013

Notification of acceptance: March 29, 2013

Camera-ready deadline: April 12, 2013

Workshop to take place at NAACL-HLT 2013: June 13 or 14, 2013
