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



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

 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

 Domain, topic and genre dependency of sentiment analysis

 Ambiguity issues and word sense disambiguation of subjective

 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

 Intrinsic and extrinsic evaluations subjectivity and sentiment

 Subjectivity, sentiment and emotion detection in social

 Classification of stance in dialogues

 Applications of sentiment and social media analysis systems
