*Call for Papers/Participation to shared task*

*Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition [Shared Task]*


*BOSTON, MA, USA, JULY 11 2013*

*in conjunction with the Seventh international AAAI Conference on
Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM)*


===Topics and Shared Task Description===

The Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition (Shared
Task) invites contributions from researchers or teams working in:

-Data Mining,

-Computational Psychology,

-Natural Language Processing,

-Social Network Analysis,

-Sentiment Analysis,

-Deception Detection,

-Information Extraction,

-Human-Computer Interaction,

-Authorship Attribution

and any other related area.

Organizers will provide two gold standard labelled datasets:

 1) Raw Text and Personality: a large dataset of essays labelled
    with personality, produced by Pennebaker et Al 2001 and used
    by Mairesse et al. 2007.

 2) Social Network Data and Personality: Facebook status updates,
    and Facebook network properties (including network size,
    betweenness centrality, density and transitivity) labelled
    with personality, produced by Stillwell & Kosinski, 2013.

Contributors are required to:

 - use at least one of the datasets provided by the organizers
   for their experiments (contributors can add annotation levels
   for cross comparisons using any type of external resource);

 - provide the files used for the experiments;

 - submit a short paper (max. 4 pages, including references)
   reporting all the information about features, resources and
   techniques used in the experiments, and discussing results.

Organizers warmly invite contributors working in Personality
Recognition to test their systems on the datasets released. Other
researchers or teams that wish to use the datasets for the tasks
listed above are more than welcome.

The Programme committee will evaluate and select the papers for
publication on the basis of clarity, correctness, meaningful
comparison, significance, soundness and replicability. Negative
results will be considered as important as positive results.

Selected papers will be published in the workshop proceedings and
will be presented as posters at the workshop.

All papers must follow AAAI formatting guidelines
(http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php) and must be
sent to fabio.celli_(at)_live.it no later than March 8th, 2013.

The website of the workshop is online at
http://mypersonality.org/wiki/doku.php?id=wcpr13 .

The Workshop will take place in a half day on July 11th, 2013 and
will include one presentation talk, a poster session and a panel
discussion, open to contributors, organizers and attendees.
