Workshop on Intelligent Approaches applied to Sentiment Mining
and Emotion Analysis (WISMEA)


Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, 21 October 2012.

In conjunction with: The XXI Brazilian Symposium on Artificial
Intelligence - SBIA


It is a pleasure to announce the call for papers to the first
Workshop on Intelligent Approaches applied to Sentiment Mining
and Emotion Analysis (WISMEA). The workshop will be held together
with the SBIA 2012, which is the leading conference in Brazil for
presentation of research and applications in Artificial
Intelligence. The conference will be held in Curitiba, Paraná,
20-25 October 2012.

Sentiment detection from texts has witnessed a booming interest
in recent years. More than ever before, people are sharing their
knowledge, experience and thoughts with entire world, through
blogs, wikis, forum, chats and social networks. The automatic
detection of sentiment (opinion) and emotions in texts is
important for a variety of applications such as e-commerce,
e-learning environments, or entertainment games. This workshop
will provide a forum for discussion between researchers involved
in processing and extracting of opinion mining, sentiment and
emotions analysis, for many languages.

Researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on techniques
in fields from AI and natural language processing applied to
extracting of opinions, sentiments and emotions. Besides
methodologies and techniques for opinion mining, sentiment and
emotions analysis, we also encourage the submission of papers
that experiment with and describe applicative contexts in which
analysis and detection of affective aspects are useful and
beneficial. Transfer of data sets or other resources from one
language to another or building resources for various languages
is also of interest.

 We would like to invite researchers to submit their original and
 unpublished work to the workshop. Demos of working or under
 development systems are encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- extraction opinion and sentiment analysis from the Web using AI

- AI techniques of opinion mining;

- novel approaches for sentiment and opinion mining ;

- machine learning applied to opinion mining, sentiment and
  emotions analysis;

- emotion analysis in sentences and documents;

- multi-lingual opinion mining and sentiment analysis;

- classification of texts by emotion and mood;

- emotion processing across different languages;

- the analysis of sentiment and opinion that contains emotional

- emotion analysis in automatic speech transcripts;

- applications in which affective aspects are beneficial;

- other aspects of the AI treatment of emotions and affect in Wed

- applications of sentiment analysis and opinion mining;

- sociolinguistic aspects of classification.
