Subject: [ E-CFP ] DEADLINE EXTENSION: KDD13 Workshop on Issues of Sentiment Discovery and Opinion Mining
From: <cambria_(on)_nus.edu.sg>
Date received: 05 May 2013
Deadline: 26 May 2013
Start date: 12 Aug 2013

Apologies for cross-posting.

Submissions are invited to the KDD13 Workshop on Issues of
Sentiment Discovery and Opinion Mining
(http://sentic.net/wisdom), which aims to explore how the wisdom
of the crowds is affecting (and will affect) the evolution of the
Web and of businesses gravitating around it. In particular, the
ACM KDD workshop explores two different stages of sentiment
analysis: the former focusing on the identification of
opinionated text over the Web, the latter focusing on the
classification of such text either in terms of polarity detection
or emotion recognition. Deadline has been extended to 26th May.

RATIONALE The exponential growth of the Social Web is virally
infecting more and more critical business processes such as
customer support and satisfaction, brand and reputation
management, product design and marketing. Because of this global
trend, web users already evolved from the era of social
relationships, in which they began to get connected and started
to share contents, to the era of social functionality, in which
they started using social networks as the main platform for
communication and dissemination of information. Today, web users
are going through the era of social colonization, in which every
experience on the Web can be social (e.g., Facebook Like button),
and are getting ready for the era of social context, in which web
contents will be highly targeted and personalized. The final
stage of such Social Web evolution is the so called era of social
commerce, in which communities will define future products and
services. In such context, the research field of sentiment
analysis, which has already been rapidly growing in the last
decade, is destined to become more and more important for Web and
business dynamics.

TOPICS The workshop aims to provide an international forum for
both researchers and entrepreneurs working in the field of
opinion mining to share information on their latest
investigations in social information retrieval and their
applications in academic research areas and industrial sectors.
The broader context of the workshop comprehends AI, Semantic Web,
information retrieval, web mining, and natural language
processing. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: 
Sentiment identification & classification  Knowledge-based
opinion mining  Sentiment summarization & visualization  Entity
discovery & extraction  Opinion aggregation  Opinion search &
retrieval  Time evolving sentiment analysis  Opinion spam
detection  Comparative opinion analysis  Topic detection &
trend discovery  Psychological models for sentiment analysis 
Multilingual opinion mining  Sentic computing  Big social data
analysis  Social ranking  Social network analysis  Influence,
trust & privacy analysis  Business intelligence applications

TIMEFRAME  May 8th, 2013: Submission deadline  June 8th, 2013:
Notification of acceptance  June 18th, 2013: Final manuscripts
due  August 12th, 2013: Workshop date

PROCEEDINGS Accepted papers will be published in KDD WISDOM
proceedings. Selected, expanded versions of papers presented at
the workshop will be invited to a forthcoming Special Issue of
Cognitive Computation on opinion mining and sentiment analysis.
