Call For Papers

1st Workshop on Approaches to Mining Mass Opinion for Business Intelligence (AMMBI)
(Held in conjunction with ICAI 2010 - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA)

Call for papers

Mass opinion mining is related both to subjectivity and sentiment analysis, two tasks of growing importance in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP), as well as other disciplines such as economics, psychology and sociology. Although studied separately, the task can benefit from an interdisciplinary approach, due to its difficulty and the multitude of facets that it contains.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in computational linguistics, dealing with subjectivity and sentiment analysis, but also from other disciplines related to the task of mass opinion mining and/or estimation: psychologists, sociologists, economists etc., with the objective of facilitating an interdisciplinary dialogue on the analysis, requirements, issues and applications of the study and modelling of mass opinion.

Topics of interest

We welcome original and unpublished evaluation or position papers on all (mass) opinion mining issues. Some suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
• Mass opinion estimation based on NLP and statistical models
• Opinion mining and behavioural studies in the context of social networks
• Opinion retrieval, extraction, categorization, aggregation and summarization
• Information bias and perspective determination for source trust and reputation determination
• Computational analysis of persuasion techniques
• Correlation of factual and opinionated data based on socio-economic models
• User profile definition for personalized retrieval
• Topic relevance analysis for information monitoring
• Topic and sentiment studies and applications of topic-sentiment analysis
• Use of Semantic Web technologies for factual and subjective data analysis
• Proposals involving the computational treatment of large amounts of subjective data
• Applications of opinion mining systems to real-world business scenarios
