Call For Papers


*PATHOS - Practice and Theory of Opinion Mining and Sentiment Analysis*
workshop held in conjunction with KONVENS-2012

September 21, 2012, Vienna, Austria

Extended Submission Deadline: June 29, 2012


*Scope of the Workshop*

The goal of PATHOS is to attract researchers and developers in
the area of sentiment analysis and opinion mining. The workshop
focuses on
(i) methods and resources for multi-lingual sentiment
(ii) dependencies of genre and domain in sentiment
analysis and its subtasks,
(iii) sentiment analysis with distinction of emotional
categories, i.e. emotion analysis, and
(iv) opinion holder and opinion target extraction.

While there is an abundance of methods and resources available
for English, comparatively little research focuses on other
languages or multi-lingual sentiment analysis.
In addition to language differences, deviations across genres
and domains require special treatment, but are so far only
seldom taken into account.
Emotion analysis goes beyond traditional sentiment analysis,
giving insight into the different emotional categories of an
opinionated statement. Thus it is not restricted to mere
polarity identification but detects particular feelings, such
as "fear", or "anger", "hope" and "joy".
Opinion holder and target extraction is the domain in sentiment
analysis with significant economic potential. It allows
stakeholders to nail down the exact source and target of
criticism or praise. Exploiting this knowledge helps improving
products and services and can be considered a tool for quality

PATHOS will serve as a platform for these particular sub-areas
of sentiment analysis.

The workshop will be organized by the recently founded
Interest Group on German Sentiment Analysis:

*Topics of Interest*

We invite contributions on, but not necessarily limited to:
- Genre- and domain-specific sentiment analysis
- Cross-genre and cross-domain sentiment analysis
- Semi-supervised/weakly supervised learning for sentiment analysis
- Contrast of machine learning vs. linguistic approaches vs. hybrid
- Sentiment analysis on twitter and social media in general
- Fine-to-coarse sentiment analysis
- Emotion detection and classification
- Representation of and calculus on emotions
- Multi-lingual sentiment analysis
- Lexical resources for opinion mining and sentiment analysis
- Gold standards and methods for evaluation
- Real-world applications and large-scale sentiment analysis
- Trends and perspectives in the field
