Call For Papers

The First International Workshop on Sentiment Discovery from Affective Data (SDAD 2012)

In conjunction with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML/PKDD), Bristol, UK, 24-28 September 2012

The current expansion of social media leads to masses of affective data related to peoples? emotions, sentiments and opinions. Knowledge discovery from such data is an emerging area of research in the past few years, with a potential number of applications of paramount importance to business organisations, individual users and governments. Data mining and machine learning techniques are used to discover knowledge from various types of affective data such as ratings, text or browsing data. Although research in this area has grown considerably in the recent years, knowledge discovery from affective data is in its infancy state with more open issues and challenges which often require interdisciplinary approaches. This workshop aims to bring together researchers in this area to present their latest work, to discuss the challenges in the field and identify where our efforts, as a research community, should focus.

Topics of interest

Researchers are encouraged to submit papers including, but not restricted to the following topics related to knowledge discovery from affective data:
- Retrieval, extraction, categorization, aggregation and summarization of affective data
- Techniques for dealing with ambiguity
- Classification techniques for knowledge discovery from affective data
- Clustering techniques for knowledge discovery from affective data
- Domain dependency of affective data
- Tracking affective data over time
- Data preparation for knowledge discovery from affective data
- Evaluation methodologies
- Educational data mining on affective data
- ?Affective? trend detection in social media
- Other real-world applications and case studies of knowledge discovery from affective data
