4th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity,
Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2013)



*** Endorsed by SIGANN - the ACL Special Interest Group for
Annotation *** Endorsed by SIGNLL - ACL's Special Interest Group
on Natural Language Learning


The aim of the 4th 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 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


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:
http://naacl2013.naacl.org/Documents/naaclhlt2013.tgz 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:
