NTCIR-7 Multilingual Opinion Analysis Task Call for Participation

Sentiment and opinion analysis has been an active area of natural  
language processing research lately.  There are many applications from  
product research to automated public opinion survey creation,  
opinionated summarization to intention analysis for natural language  
understanding.

In the 2007 NTCIR-6 Workshop we held a pilot task for sentence-level  
opinion analysis.  At NTCIR-7 we will hold a second run of the opinion  
analysis evaluation for Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), English,  
and Japanese for identifying opinions expressed at a sub-sentence  
level as well as the opinion holders and opinion targets.
