[eu_members at aclweb dot org] Nevada: 1st Workshop on Approaches to Mining Mass Opinion for Business Intelligence (AMMBI), at ICAI -- CFP

   **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We welcome original and unpublished evaluation or position papers on all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
· 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
· 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
